Our match prediction:
Sunday’s football match at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino sees Torino and Bologna face each other on Matchday 2 of the new Serie A campaign. Il Toro were beaten by Milan in the opening match of the season, meaning that they are determined to pick up at least one point from the Bologna game. The Rossoblu kicked off the new Serie A campaign in great manner, with the team beating newcomers Crotone in front of home fans, but Sunday’s clash against Torino will be anything but a walk in the park for the visitors. Torino new signing Adem Ljaljic failed to score against Milan, but the Serbian international is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back line on Matchday 2. In previous two meetings between the two teams Torino emerged triumphant and, taking everything into account, we predict that Il Toro are going to pick up all three points from Sunday’s clash.
