Our match prediction:
Luca Rigoni’s first goal of the season secured Genoa a successive triumph in front of the home fans and a five-point cushion between them and the dotted line. Now il Grifone await il Toro, a team that have been going through a rough patch of late. Torino accomplished only two triumphs in their last fifteen matches in all competitions, their away form is not something to brag about, but have proven to be a tough team to beat in recent matches. Stadio Luigi Ferraris seem as an impregnable fortress for Giampiero Ventura’s side, since they are yet to record a victory in Genoa (D5 L6). Usually their clashes are real nail-bitters, especially those played in Liguria. We do not reckon this one will be an exception, so we predict a low-scoring, hard battle. Even though Gian Piero Gasperini’s men would leapfrog their next opponents in the table with a triumph, we believe Torino will remain unbeaten once again.
