Torino play host to Udinese in Serie A soccer action from the Stadio Olimpico di Torino on Tuesday afternoon.
Torino come into this match in 15th place on 28 points with a record of 8 wins, 4 draws and 14 losses after a 1-1 tie with Parma in their last match. In the draw with Parma, Nicolas N’Koulou gave Torino the lead after just 15 minutes but Parma would tie the game at one just after the half hour mark. Torino had a chance to go ahead right after the half, but Andrea Belotti would be stopped from the penalty spot, denying Torino a 2-1 lead. Both sides had chances over the course of the second half, but neither side would be able to produce a game-winner the rest of the way, leading to a share of the points at full time. Andrea Belotti leads Torino in scoring with 9 goals while Alex Berenguer has 5 goals and Cristian Ansaldi has 4 goals with 3 assists. Salvatore Sirigu is Torino’s #1 goalkeeper, conceding 1.69 goals per 90 minutes with 5 clean sheets in 26 league appearances this season.
Udinese on the other side, comes in in 14th place, sitting on 28 points with a record of 7 wins, 7 draws and 12 losses after a 4th straight draw in the form of a 0-0 draw against Fiorentina in their last match before Serie A was paused due to the Coronavirus pandemic. In the draw with Fiorentina, there were only two bookings in the match, both going to Udinese, with Udi holding an 11-7 edge in terms of goal attempts with Fiorentina holding 55% possession and 5 shots on goal to Udinese’s 2. Rodrigo de Paul and Stefano Okaka each have a team-high 5 goals while Seko Fofana has a team-high 4 assists on the year.
This is a hard game to call as you have two teams that are pretty much even in the standings, trying find points to get space from the relegation zone. Torino has an upper hand because they already have a match under their proverbial belts, but the Bull isn’t a team I’m trying to get behind long term as they’re on a seven game winless run. Udinese was on a run of four straight draws before the league paused and I think they pick up where they left off. I’m going to side with the draw as my main bet for this match as well as putting side action on correct scores of 0-0 and 1-1 for sizeable plus money here.
