Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
Torino and Fiorentina face each other at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Sunday’s program in the Italian Cup. Torino have been having their ups and downs in the 2018/2019 Serie A season and, as a result, they sit in the ninth place in the standings after 19 rounds. Il Toro kicked off their Coppa Italia campaign with a 4-0 win over Cosenza, but they failed to impress in a 2-0 victory over Sudtirol. Anyhow, the Bulls are tough to beat at home and they are definitely capable of matching Fiorentina in the last 16 of the competition. The Viola are eager to make their debut in the Italian Cup with a victory, but beating Torino on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards and we believe that there is a big value in betting on the draw in this one.
