Tip Reasoning

Torino keep seeing the gap between themselves and the European spots widening, thanks to their awful recent form. They can’t seem to get their season back on track, despite having plenty of opportunities. While they’ve been struggling for points, the sides above them have been consistent and opened up quite a gap. Will Il Toro be able to return to winning ways by seeing off Pescara at home on Sunday? While it’s too late for their chances of making the Europa League, they can still have a strong finish to the season.

Facing the worst side in the division is the perfect opportunity for Torino to try and get back on track. Il Toro really need three points, given that they’ve failed to win any of their last six outings. That’s seen them crash out of the Coppa Italia, while their league ambitions are in trouble after one win in nine in Serie A.

Torino will be desperate to end that run with victory over Pescara, a side who have now failed to win any of their last 21 games. The visitors have also conceded a goal in 10 straight matches on their travels, a record which should get even worse this weekend. The hosts average 2.18 goals per game at home. While Il Toro have scored just five times in their last six games, Pescara concede over two goals per game on their travels. That should see the home side hit the target this weekend.

Joe Hart is likely to be busy in the Torino goal, he’s certainly earning his money in Turin. The hosts have always tried to outscore the opposition, but that hasn’t worked as well since their goals started to dry up. They’re likely to adopt the same approach here, which should see a wide open game. Torino have conceded 1.18 goals per game at home this season, so they’re vulnerable at the back against anyone.

Pescara have scored 53% of their total goals this season away from home. The visitors have also found the net in three of their last four away games. Given that Torino have seen both teams score in 82% of their home games, we can see goals on both sides this weekend. Pescara have also managed to score in five of their last six visits here, which makes it worth backing BTTS at 5/6 with bet365. We’re also going for a narrow win for the hosts, given that they’ve won 55% of their matches here. A 2-1 victory is priced at 7/1 with bet365.
