Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Ten-man Palermo brought home a hard-earned point against Sassuolo, and now the Sicilians will be looking to leapfrog their next opponents in the table with a victory at Stadio Renzo Barbera this Sunday afternoon. Giovani Tedesco’s charges want revenge for the defeat in the reverse fixture. The Rosanero never lost to Torino on home turf, but are waiting for their first triumph since November 2008. Torino have been in a miserable form since the beginning of December, having won just once in their last eleven Serie A fixtures. They were up a goal against Chievo in the previous round, but an unfortunate own goal by Bruno Peres and the penalty by Valter Birsa left il Toro empty-handed. Both teams suffer from a dip in form and we reckon the fans will witness one more pale showing this time out. Bearing in mind the fact that four of their last five clashes ended in a draw, we believe that Palermo and Torino will share the spoils in a dour draw.
