Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sunday’s football game between Torino and Roma will bring down the curtain on day 5 of the new Serie A campaign. Il Toro defeated both Genoa and Salernitana in the previous two league fixtures, with Serbia winger Nemanja Radonjic showcasing his worth and, no doubt, the former Olympique Marseille man is going to make life difficult for the Romans on Matchday 5. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but all Mihai Popa, Mergim Vojvoda, Ivan Ilic, and Koffi Djidji remain in the recovery room.
Jose Mourinho’s troops, on the other hand, rolled over Empoli 7-0 in their last league match, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Torino, though, are tough to beat at home and we do not believe that the Romans are capable of grabbing more than one point from the match. The likes of Lorenzo Pellegrini, Tammy Abraham, and Marash Kumbulla miss out with injuries for the visiting team.
