We have an interesting match-up from Serie A. The 8th placed team Torino are going to host the last placed team SPAL 2013 (Torino – SPAL 2013).
Having won 6 times, drawn 3 times, and lost 7 times, the home side have gathered 21 points in 16 rounds so far. In this process, they have scored 21 goals and conceded 24. In the games they played at their soil, they have won 3 times, drawn 2 times, and lost 3 times as well. Their record shows us that they are not the strongest team when playing at home; however, they have already played against some of the best teams in the Italy’s first division. In those games, they defeated AC Milan, got a draw against Napoli, and were beaten by Juventus and Inter. Therefore, my point is that their job will not be any easier in the second leg of the league. They will have to face those teams on the road and it would be absurd to claim that their chances are high. Considering their challenging fixture in the second leg, the game against SPAL 2013 holds a great significance. This should be a must-win game for Torino if they want to have a place in the first six.
As to the away side, there isn’t much to talk about. Since the very beginning of the season, SPAL 2013 have been the worst team almost in each category. Having won only 2 times, drawn 3 times, and lost 11 times, they have managed to gather 9 points in 16 rounds. They are the worst team in away games as well. They managed to get a single draw in 8 rounds and lost the remaining 7. There is no question that they are the biggest candidate for relegation.
All in all, Torino are the heavy favorites in this match-up. Odds around 1.75 for the home win are of great value in my opinion. My pick is Torino to win and I will place my bet on VIP-IBC, if you do not have and account yet, sign up for the best betting software now. Good luck!
