Tip Reasoning

  • Torino have scored 14 goals in seven outings at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino this campaign, with only Juventus keeping a clean sheet there.
  • Empoli, meanwhile, have scored 10 in six away games, earning a greater share of their points on the road than any other Serie A team.
  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in each of Torino’s last three home games, and on each of Empoli’s last three away trips.

Torino Strong at Home, Empoli Excellent Away

Empoli have one of Serie A’s strongest away records this season, and also earned a first home victory since September, when they completed a remarkable turnaround to see off Fiorentina at the weekend. Aurelio Andreazzoli’s intense, high-pressing outfit don’t seem to have any relegation worries after their promotion, and sit two points ahead of Torino ahead of Thursday’s mid-table meeting.

Given that they’ve lost five of seven on the road, Torino’s impressive home record has been crucial; only local rivals Juventus have come away from Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino with a clean sheet in Serie A this term, and Torino have scored 14 goals in seven home league games this season.

Empoli, meanwhile, have won four of six away from home, averaging 1.66 goals per game on their travels. Their last four Serie A games have seen a decisive goal scored in the 89th minute or later, and with Torino having alternated between winning and losing across their last seven league fixtures, neither team fills me with confidence on the outright markets for what should be a lively affair.

Back Goals in Unpredictable Game

With over 2.5 goals having been scored in each of Torino’s last three home games, and in each of Empoli’s last three on the road, backing goals seems the smart play for Thursday night, for a game which really could go either way.

In terms of a correct score prediction, an entertaining 2-2 draw seems a solid play, given the unpredictability of both teams.
