Our football match prediction:
Lazio and Torino square off against each other at Stadio Olimpico in the closing match of day 16. The Biancocelesti came from behind to beat Sampdoria at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris at the weekend and, as a result, they stayed in the race for a place in the Champions League. Simone Inzaghi’s men have been scoring goals for fun in the first half of the season and we predict they will stick to their attacking style of play in Monday’s football game against Torino. Serbia superstar Sergej Milinkovic-Savic found the net in the 2-1 victory over La Samp and all eyes will be on him when Lazio face Il Toro in the “Eternal City”. Sinisa Mihajlovic’s troops, on the other hand, are on a five-game winless run on the road in the national championship and they are unlikely to spoil Lazio’s party at Stadio Olimpico. Ciro Immobile is likely to lead the line for the hosts and he should pose a big threat for his former teammates.
