Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
A place in the Coppa Italia semis will be at stake when Torino and Roma face each other at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino on Thursday evening. Torino aim to build on a terrific 2-0 win over Roma in the Serie A, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. A man to watch in the home team will be Andrea Belotti, who scored a brace in the Stadio Olimpico clash.
The Rossoblu, on the other hand, set up a meeting with Torino by beating the likes of Imolese and Ascoli in front of home fans. Considering that Genoa often struggle on the travels, we predict that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in Thursday’s Italian Cup clash. Even though the hosts are without injured trio Lyanco – Baselli – Iago Falque, we believe that home win should be considered as Il Toro are a real force to be reckoned with at home.
