Spezia vs Torino
Italian Serie A
Date: 27 May 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco (La Spezia).
Spezia will be seeking salvation points on Saturday afternoon when they host mid-table Torino in one of their most important games of the season.
Leonardo Semplici’s men kept their net untouched in the last two league games, claiming four points in the process.
They have dispatched AC Milan 2-0 before playing a goalless draw in a proper relegation six-pointer away at Lecce six days ago.
Spezia are now one point above Hellas Verona in the red zone and they desperately need a result on Saturday against Torino, especially knowing they’ll have to face Roma at the Stadio Olimpico on the final day.
Semplici can be thrilled with his team’s recent defensive showings He should fancy his side’s chances of keeping things quiet at the back once again here against Torino whose attacking prowess has not quite been their biggest weapon this season.
Il Toro rely heavily on defense under Ivan Juric. This is why all but one of their last nine Serie A games have finished with fewer than three goals scored.
The streak involves a 1-1 draw to Fiorentina six days ago in Turin. It was the fourth consecutive unbeaten match for Il Toro who have allowed just two goals along the way.
Spezia vs Torino Head-to-head
- Spezia will rely on tradition because they have won both previous home clashes against Torino with a 5-1 goal difference in the process.
- Spezia also came on top in a narrow 0-1 victory over Torino back in January this year in the return leg.
- Three of five H2H outings between these rivals ended with fewer than two goals scored.
Spezia vs Torino Prediction
This match has a much greater significance to Spezia who need a win to go four points clear of Hellas Verona before their clash against Empoli on Sunday. The hosts have kept their net untouched in the last two outings.
Knowing only one of Torino’s last nine league affairs saw three or more goals scored, we have to take the Under 2.5 goals FT as the main option here at the 1.66 odds. We also like Spezia’s win at the 2.37 odds.
