The first-round Serie A match between Lazio and Torino ended in a 0-0 draw. In general, the last four matches between the Romans and Torino ended in a draw. Despite the fact that recently Lazio and Torino played exclusively draws, the bookmakers in the pairing are on the side of the Romans, believe that the home team has the best chance of success.
Lazio are in fantastic form, with Sarri’s side confidently occupying second place in Serie A, and their exit from the Conference League only benefited the Romans. After their 3-0 away defeat of La Spezia last season, the Lazzilians have won four straight in the league and are five points clear of third place and Roma. It looks like the Romans will finally be back in the Champions League after a couple of seasons, along with their fellow stadium players. The team’s play is pleasing, especially in the attack – 2-1 with Juventus, 2-0 with Monza from the latter are also pleasing to the team’s fans.
Torino is not motivated enough to stop the Romans. Ivan Juric’s team plays like a typical mid-table side, which has not tasted victory in a long time – all because of the lack of special tournament motivation. The Turin side are now in 11th place, quiet in every sense, and unbeaten in four straight rounds. Last week they got thrown off at home by Salernitana, who came back from a 1-1 deficit in the second half. Before that, the Rubins were 0-4 against Napoli, 0-1 against Roma and 1-1 against Sassuolo. Against the backdrop of Lazio’s attack, Torino looks modest.
It is difficult to pass by such a good CF on the victory of the hosts. The Romans caught the courage and let them not get Napoli with more probability, but the second position needs strengthening, especially Milinkovic-Savic. Immobile, Luis Alberto and Zacchagni are on fire right now. Torino does not impress with their game, the tournament situation somehow calmed the guests down and they look weaker against Lazio at the Olimpico, which is reflected in our prediction.
