Our match prediction:
Il Toro have been going through a rough patch, with mere two triumphs in their last fourteen league fixtures. The latest defeat against Milan (1-0) brought them down to the 12th position in the overall standings, but Torino still have an nine-point cushion between them and the relegation zone. Anyway, Giampiero Ventura’s charges need to arrest the negative trend urgently if they plan to stay in the safe zone. Lazio failed to take over the seventh place in the direct clash against Sassuolo, they now trail four points behind the Neroverdi and still have a faint chance to battle for the spot in the Europa League next term. I Biancocelesti are on a five-game unbeaten run against Torino. Stefano Pioli’s charges emerged triumphant from their previous two visits to Stadio Olimpico, currently they are undefeated in their last eight away matches in all competitions, but most of them ended in a draw, so we predict yet another share of spoils this Sunday afternoon.
