Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Salernitana will look to record their first win of the season when they take on Torino at Stadio Arechi on Monday. Paulo Sousa’s troops are eager to put an end to their three-game winless run, but they face a difficult task against Il Toro, who defeated Genoa before the international break. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but defender Flavius Daniliuc remains on the sidelines with a foot problem.
The visitors, on the other hand, are eyeing their first away triumph of the process and given Salernitana’s shaky defence, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on Ivan Juric’s troops. Both Antonio Sanabria and Koffi Djidji remain in the treatment room, but they should be the only absentees in the visiting team. It has to be noted that Torino are undefeated in the previous four meetings with Salernitana.
