Roma vs Torino prediction

Following a thrilling 3-3 draw with Atalanta in Bergamo, Roma will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Serie A when they host tenth-placed Torino at their Stadio Olimpico. The Giallorossi are eyeing a place in the Champions League and Wednesday’s game against Il Toro could be crucial for the capital club.

Spalletti doing a great job

Roma were far from impressive under Rudi Garcia in the first half of the season and, as a result, the club owners appointed Luciano Spalletti as a new boss. The Giallorossi have been in a brilliant form ever since the former Zenit manager took over the reins and they are on the right track to book their place in the Champions League qualifiers. The capital club sit in third place in the standings and they head into Wednesday’s match against Torino following a 3-3 draw with Atalanta at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. Edin Dzeko missed a glorious opportunity to score to make it 3-2 during the second half, but, no doubt, he will keep his place in the starting line-up. Francesco Totti scored the equalizer in the 3-3 draw with Atalanta and the Prince of Rome could be recalled to the starting line-up.

Norbert Gyomber is sidelined with injury, while Miralem Pjanic, Lucas Digne and Iago Falque are all rated doubtful and the trio will be assessed on the match day. There are no suspended players in the home team.

Back on track

Torino were hammered by their local rivals Juventus in the Turin derby on 20 March, but the team quickly bounced back from the heavy defeat. Il Toro did well to beat Inter at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Matchday 31 and, to make things even better for the fans, they outplayed the likes of Atalanta and Bologna in previous two league matches. Giampiero Ventura’s troops are on a three-game winning run in the league and their fresh confidence will be tested in Wednesday’s game against Roma. Torino did defeat the likes of Inter and Bologna in previous two away games in the Serie A, but they often struggle on the travels and that is the main reason why they are regarded as underdogs in the Stadio Olimpico clash. Andrea Belotti has been scoring goals for fun of late and all eyes will be on the former Palermo attacker when the two teams take on each other in the “Eternal City”.

Coach Giampero Ventura can’t count on the likes of Avelar, Acquah, Benassi, Maxi Lopez and Ciro Immobile (all injury), but the Italian tactician has no other selection worries ahead of the trip to Rome.

Quick Facts

  • Torino are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in the Serie A
  • Roma have suffered only one loss under Luciano Spalletti in the league
  • Giallorossi failed to keep a clean sheet in previous eight games in all competitions
  • Torino recorded their last win over Roma at Stadio Olimpico back in 2007
  • Both teams scored in five of last six meetings between the two teams

Roma vs Torino betting tip

Roma need to start a new winning run as soon as possible if they are to make it to the Champions League qualifiers and, no doubt, the capital club will go for a win in Wednesday’s game against Torino. Il Toro, on the other hand, have been in a brilliant form of late and, seeing that the Romans failed to keep a clean sheet in last eight matches, I am tempted to put my money on both teams to score.

Tip: Both teams to score

Odds: 1.95 (10/11) @10Bet
