Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
Torino will be looking to build on a 2-1 win over Genoa when they host Suditrol at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino in the Coppa Italia round 4. Il Toro have been showings signs of improvement of late and a win over Suditrol will surely give them yet another confidence boost. Coach Walter Mazzarri is likely to mix the squad in the Italian Cup game, but regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, home win should be considered. Suditrol set up a meeting with Torino by beating the likes of Albalonga, Venezia and Frosinone, but they will have a big fish to fry in Thursday’s football match. It has to be noted that the two teams face each other for the first time ever in a competitive match. A man to watch in the home team will be Andrea Belotti, who scored his fifth goal of the season in the 2-1 win over Genoa.
