Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Torino and Roma go head to head at Stadio Olimpico di Torino on the last day of the season. Il Toro quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Napoli, with the team beating Verona thanks to Josip Brekalo’s goal. The hosts have little to play for against the Giallorossi, but their pride will be at stake in Friday’s clash. All Fares, Buongiorno, Singo, Sanabria, Zaza, and Bremer are out of contention with injuries.
The Romans, on the other hand, are eager to book their place in the Europa League. Since Roma want this win more than Torino, we predict that Jose Mourinho’s troops are going to pick up all three points from the decider. As for the visiting team, Henrikh Mkhitaryan remains on the sidelines with injury, while Nicolo Zaniolo is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.

AS Roma is a professional football club based in Rome. Roma were founded by a merger in 1927 and they play in the Italian Serie A. Roma’s fiercest rivals are Lazio and it has to be noted that both capital clubs play their home games at Stadio Olimpico. The two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Capitale, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world of football.

The colour of Roma’s shirts is imperial purple with a golden yellow trim. A number of top-class footballers were part of Roma in the past, but Francesco Totti is undisputedly the club’s biggest legend.The Prince of Rom made his 601 appearances for Roma on 14 May, 2016 when the Giallorossi recorded a 3-1 win over Milan at Stadio San Siro.
