Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Artemio Franchi will host Saturday’s football game between Fiorentina and Torino, the two teams who are level on points in the Serie A standings. The Viola aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Fiorentina, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Il Toro. Dodo is banned for the match, while all Sottil, Cabral, Mandragora, and Quarta are sidelined through injuries.
Meanwhile, the visitors suffered a shocking 1-0 loss to Spezia at the weekend, but despite the defeat they are sitting in top ten ahead of Matchday 19. Considering that Fiorentina have turned their “Artemio Franchi” into a real fortress, we do not believe that Ivan Juric’s men are capable of grabbing something from the match. To make things even worse for the visiting side, important midfielder Lukic has joined the likes of Pellegri, Aina, Ilkhan, and Lazaro in the recovery room.
