Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After suffering a heavy 5-1 loss at Atalanta, Crotone will be aiming to keep their survival hopes alive when they take on Torino in the Serie A round 26. The Rossoblu have collected no more than 12 points in the Serie A this season, and, no doubt, they will find it hard to avoid relegation to the Italian second tier. Anyhow, the hope dies last, and we are positive that the rock-bottom side will fight tooth and nail against Torino. The likes of Benali, Cigarini, Molina, Djidji, and Vulic are all likely to miss the game through injuries.
Il Toro, on the other hand, were not in action in midweek as their clash with Lazio was postponed. Torino are eager to escape the relegation zone, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Baselli remains quarantined, but he should be the only absentee in the away team.
