Competition: Serie A
Market: Torino win
Odds: 1/2 @ 1xBet
Smelling a golden opportunity on Sunday lunchtime, Torino will welcome a struggling Salernitana to Turin this weekend.
Starting with the hosts, making an immediate return to winning ways last week as they clinched a 2-1 victory away at Cagliari, Torino have continued to impress many across Italy’s elite this season. While Ivan Juric’s men might be seeking a real uphill battle in their bid to punch a European ticket in 2024, the Bulls have suffered just a single defeat from any of their previous eight straight domestic appearances across all competitions – a run that stems back to November 27th. Opening the New Year with a famous performance in Turin as they stormed their way to a 3-0 romp against defending champions Napoli, Torino will be smelling the chance to make another domestic statement. Rightfully tipped as a standout contender here, Juric will also be excited by his side’s continued purple patch on home soil. Including another stunning 3-0 victory against Atalanta last month, the former Genoa boss has seen his high-flying squad collect 13 points from their last five Serie A showdowns in Turin.
As for the visitors, enduring what has been a public Serie A crisis this season, Salernitana are limping their way to Italy’s second-tier. Last seen getting hit with a 2-1 defeat at home against Roma, Filippo Inzaghi’s side have lost all of their previous five domestic appearances on the bounce by an aggregate score of 14-5. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat rock-bottom of the table and already six points adrift of safety, the Garnets are rightfully tipped as a landslide relegation contender this year. With their extended nightmare highlighted by a 6-1 drumming at the hands of Italian giants Juventus on January 4th, the one-time AC Milan boss has also seen his squad gain a reputation for their glaring defensive issues. Already shipping 44 Serie A strikes in their 22 top-flight appearances this season, Salernitana should also be concerned by their reverse showdown against Torino. Hit with a 3-0 drumming when the two sides met back on September 18th, we are expecting a similar outcome on Sunday lunchtime.
