Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sunday’s match at Stadio Olimpico di Torino sees the two out-of-form sides Torino and Chievo face each other on day 24 of the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign. Il Toro have been struggling to find their form in 2016, with the team recording no more than one win in the second half of the season. Giampiero Ventura’s men have been slipping down the standings week by week, but the team showed character in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw against Sampdoria. Andrea Belotti scored the equalizer in the dying minutes of the match and, no doubt, the 22-year-old attacker will prove a handful for Chievo defenders. The Mussi Volanti are on a three-match losing run in the national championship and we do not believe that they are capable of upsetting Il Toro on Sunday afternoon. In their last meeting in Turin Giampiero Ventura’s team recorded a routine 2-0 win over Chievo Verona.
