Market: Torino win

Odds: 8/11 @ 1xBet

Hoping to make up some ground in the European chase on Friday night, Torino will welcome a struggling Lecce to Turin.

Starting with the hosts, although Torino might face a real uphill battle in their bid to book a famous European finish in 2024, the Bulls have received plenty of plaudits from across Italy’s elite this season. Despite eventually having to settle for a 1-1 stalemate away at Sassuolo last time out, Ivan Juric’s men have suffered just a single loss from any of their previous 10 domestic appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to November 27th. Opening the New Year with a famous performance as they stormed their way to a 3-0 romp against defending champions Napoli, Torino have certainly gained a reputation for their extended success on home soil. Including another 3-0 victory against Atalanta last month, Juric’s side have not suffered a single Serie A defeat in front of their own supporters since October 21st. Landing a 1-0 win when they met Lecce for their reverse top-flight showdown back in October, Torino will be seeking a repeat display here.

As for the visitors, although Lecce might have clung to their Serie A status last season, the Wolves are enduring another top-flight struggle. Making an immediate return to losing ways last weekend as they slumped to a woeful 4-0 drumming at the hands of Bologna, Roberto D’Aversa’s side are looking over their shoulder at a potential relegation scrap in 2024. Heading into Italy’s festive break with a 1-0 defeat against Atalanta, the former Sampdoria have recorded just a single win from any of their previous eight straight domestic appearances across all competitions. With that extended struggle stemming all the way back to December 16th, Lecce have also gained a reputation for their glaring issues on the road. In fact, Friday’s guests have lost all of their last five straight showdowns outside of Apulia by an aggregate score of 10-1. Suffering a 1-0 loss when they travelled to Turin last season, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
