Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Salernitana will be aiming to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Milan when they take on Torino in the Serie A round 17. I Granata do not seem to be at the top of their game, with the team extending their losing run to three matches in midweek, but they should not be written off just yet. Federico Bonazzoli could earn a spot in the starting XI after scoring as a substitute against the Rossoneri, while veteran Antonio Candreva is back from suspension.
Il Toro, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Verona in their last league match. Ivan Juric’s men aim to move closer to the Europa League berth, and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Salernitana’s dressing room. The good news for the away team is that defender Alessandro Buongiorno returns from suspension.
