Torino – Bologna Predictions and Preview
- Not even a first Serie A (SA) goal from a corner this season could help Torino to a first win since 2015 against Juventus as their winless run extended to three matches (D1, L2). With the European places possibly extending down to seventh, Ivan Jurić’s men still have an outside chance of continental football next season, but they’ll need to get their act together soon or else the task of bridging the gap will become more unlikely every week.
- Rather unconvincing home performances haven’t helped their quest for European football and somewhat characterise a misfiring Torino (W4, D4, L3), with only basement boys Sampdoria and Cremonese scoring less than their ten home SA goals this term. They may feel they run into an ideal opponent here then, as they’re currently on a 17 top-flight home game scoring run against Bologna stretching back to 1980, only losing three times (W10, D4, L3)!
- Four wins in their last five SA matches (L1), including a 1-0 victory over top-three hopefuls Inter last time out, staked Bologna’s claim as a serious European football contender. Starting the round just six points away from top-six marks a notable improvement for the Rossoblù, as the last time they had more points at this stage in SA was back in 2001/02 when they went on to finish seventh and seal qualification into the Intertoto Cup.
- The mood has certainly been lifted at Bologna on the back of their recent uptick in form, with coach Thiago Motta insisting he saw his squad ‘play with a smile’ as they celebrated a tenth seasonal SA victory, nine of those coming in Motta’s tenure (D2, L7). The visitors can boldly try to add another one here, and considering they’re unbeaten in all five away league matches against teams starting this round ninth or lower (W4, D1), with all four wins coming via a 2-1 scoreline, you wouldn’t bet against them doing so.
- Players to watch: Antonio Sanabria enjoys playing against Bologna, avoiding defeat in five personal meetings (W2, D3) and scoring in both wins. Netting in wins has become a habit for Riccardo Orsolini, who has scored in each of Bologna‘s last four triumphs, three times after the 75th minute just as he did here last term.
- Hot stat: Torino have seen over 2.5 goals scored in a joint-league low two home matches.
