The match of the 27th round of Serie A between Torino and Napoli will take place on March 19 at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
The Turin side after a three-match unbeaten streak in the Italian league (1 draw, 2 defeats) won their last two matches in a row with a “dry” score, the opponents were Bologna (1-0) and Lecce (2-0). Thanks to these successes, the club climbed to 8th position in the top division standings, cutting the gap from the European Cup zone to 5 points. It should be noted that Torino have a zero goal difference in the current season of Serie A – 29:29. At home the team has not lost in 6 out of the 7 previous matches in the championship of Italy (4 wins, 2 draws).
The Neapolitans picked up their 22nd win of the current Serie A season (2 draws, 2 losses) after beating Atalanta 2-0 in the last round. Thanks to which the leader of the championship increased the gap from the nearest pursuer in the standings to 18 points. It is worth noting that Napoli scored five of their last five wins in the top flight. The club is the best in the league in terms of goals scored and conceded – 60:16. In addition, the Neapolitans are the best visiting team of the current championship, winning 11 out of 13 matches (1 draw, 1 defeat).
The Neapolitans deservedly took three points against Atalanta, without allowing the opponent to create real goal-scoring opportunities. After that, the club managed to get a “dry” victory in the return leg of the Champions League against Eintracht (3-0) and made it to the quarterfinals of the tournament for the first time in their history.
That outburst of emotion could relax the visitors, and their lead in the league is very solid. “Torino play very focused and do not concede much, I do not think that Napoli can win big. The home team is able to score a draw, but it would be safer to bet on Torino with a handicap (+1).
