Our prediction for this Serie A match:
As expected, Torino recorded a routine 2-0 win over rock-bottom Crotone at the weekend. Il Toro moved a little closer to the Europa League places, but they do not want to stop now. Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men aim to record their third consecutive win in the Serie A and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match against Chievo. The Mussi Volanti sit in the top half of the standings ahead of the trip to Turin and the visitors will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Cagliari when they square off against Torino at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino. Sinisa Mihajlovic’ troops scored 2+ goals in each of their previous four home games and seeing that they rolled over Cagliari (5-1) in their last match in front of home fans, we predict that Chievo are going to return home empty-handed.
