Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back draws with the likes of Empoli and Pescara, Torino did remarkably well to beat star-studded Roma on day 6 of the new Serie A campaign. Joe Hart and his teammates managed to put an end to their three-game losing run in the national championship, but they do not want to stop now. Torino will certainly go for a win in Sunday’s football match against Fiorentina and seeing that the Viola are not regarded as good travellers, we predict that Il Toro will record their third home win of the season. Fiorentina recorded their last win at Torino back in 2008 and it has to be noted that Sinisa Mihajlovic’s team defeated the Stadio Artemio Franchi outfit in their last meeting in Turin (3-1). A man to watch in the home team will be top scorer Andrea Belotti and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back line.
