After a poor start of the new season, Torino caught up with the winning momentum, as they are currently enjoying two matches positive run in Serie A, defeating Sassuolo last time on the road with a minimal result.
They created several decent opportunities during the first part, but only in the second finally managed to pierce through the opponent’s defense, scoring the only one in this clash over Pjaca late in the 83rd, and deservedly took all three points in this encounter.
Forward Zaza is close to returning to competitive matches. The hosts keep missing forwards Belotti (2/1), Verdi (2/1), Edera (no games yet), and defender Izzo (2/0).
Lazio is coming to this clash after a minor setback in their last home fixture against underdogs from Cagliari when they took only a point in a 2:2 draw.
They had control over the ball from the start and took the lead over Immobile in the 45th, but decreased their concentration in the continuation when they allowed the guests to completely reverse with goals in the 46th and the 62nd minute.
Fortunately, Lazio recovered and bounced back with an equalizer over Cataldi in the 83rd and set the final result in this clash.
The guests have no fresh injury worries, being able to field up their best starting eleven.
A challenging one for both sides
Lazo is having some difficulties lately, and in my opinion, is not to be fully trusted in the upcoming encounter. They are capable to be dangerous, but the same thing applies to Torino as well, so opting for a high number of goals from both sides is seeming like the safest bet.
