Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After coming from behind to beat Benevento at Stadio Ciro Vigorito, SPAL will be looking to escape the relegation zone in the Serie A standings with a win over Torino. The Biancazzurri managed to put an end to their five-game winless run in the national championship, but they do not want to stop now. The team’s main goal is to secure the top flight survival and we predict they will leave their hearts on the field in Saturday’s football match against Torino. Il Toro aim to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Napoli and a win over SPAL will see them retain their spot in the top half of the standings. Andrea Belotti found the net in the defeat to the Neapolitans and, no doubt, he regained a much-needed confidence. Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men want to finish the first half of the season in style and they are likely to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s clash against SPAL.
