Tip Reasoning

Torino may have fought back to salvage a point against Fiorentina, but that still left them with just one victory in their last nine matches. That awful form has blown any hopes that Il Toro had of claiming a place in the Europa League next season, despite their hopes of making the top six earlier in the campaign. They’re now fighting to stay in the top half of the table, which would have been a minimum requirement for a side with this much talent. The hosts have a great chance to improve that form, as they face Palermo on Sunday.

The visitors are 18th in the league, and looking set for the drop. Their president even gave up his post in midweek, without naming a replacement. It seems like everyone at the club has written this season off, as they look to regroup in Serie B. The Rosanero have averaged just 0.58 points per game this term, so this is a great opportunity for Torino to get some much needed points on the board.

Torino come in to this match having managed just two victories since the end of November. Despite that awful form, they’re the highest scoring side in Italy outside of the top three. That should see them have plenty of joy against Palermo, who possess the third worst defensive record in the division. The Rosanero have let in 2.08 goals per game on their travels, and they’re facing a clinical side. Il Toro hit 2.42 goals per home game on average, and we’re expecting them to easy pass through the visitors, who have just one away clean sheet all season.

Palermo may struggle at the back, but they’ve got a solid record going forward. The Rosanero have scored 1.15 goals per game on their travels. They’ve found the net in all but one of their away games so far, while they’ve scored in every match under manager Diego Lopez. That record should worry Torino, as Joe Hart doesn’t have much protection in front of him. Il Toro have conceded in 81% of their Serie A matches this term.

Both of these sides have seen plenty of goals this season, with 83% of Torino’s home matches seeing both teams score. Palermo have seen both teams find the net in 85% of their league games on the road, including nine of their last 10 trips. The last five meetings between these two have ended with both teams scoring. We’re backing more goals here, as we’re going with BTTS in this weekend’s clash, which is priced at 7/10 with bet365.
