Fiorentina vs Torino
Italian Serie A – Season 2017/18
Date: Wednesday, 25th October 2017, at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence).
Fiorentina’s season is back of track with back-to-back wins after a poor start. They managed 2 wins from their first 7 games, but the recent two wins helped them to climb back to top half of the table. Yet, it remained to be seen if the team can keep the momentum going for a prolonged period.
Meantime, Torino have been disappointing lately after making a good start to the season. They picked 3 wins and 2 draws from the first five game, but now they are win-less in four games. One of the main reasons for the lacklustre performance is the absence of Andrea Belotti due to injury.
The Viola are unbeaten in the last three home games with a draw and 2 wins. Meantime, Torino lost just once in their five away games this season, which came against Juventus.
Fiorentina vs Torino: Head-to-head
Five of the last eight meetings the two are draws, Torino have 2 wins and Fiorentina 1.
The home team are unbeaten in the last 11 meetings between the two.
Fiorentina are unbeaten in their last 11 home matches in Serie A against Torino, 6 wins and 5 draws.
Fiorentina vs Torino: Prediction
As seen in the previous meetings, this one will be no different than a tense battle. Fiorentina will be high on confidence following back-to-back wins against Udinese and Benevento. While Torino’s camp will be positive after staying unbeaten against teams that finish outside the top six in the league last season.
Both teams to Score has to be the primary option
Brave punters can back the full-time draw
The 34-year old French veteran Cyril Thereau is a decent option to score any-time
