Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Olimpico di Torino will be the centre of attention when Torino and Napoli go head to head in an eagerly-awaited Serie A game. Il Toro aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to Fiorentina and they are surely capable of matching the struggling Neapolitans in front of home fans. Paraguay international Antonio Sanabria is widely expected to return to the starting XI, while defender Perr Schuurs remains on the sidelines with an ACL injury.
Walter Mazzarri’s troops, on the other hand, have yet to recover from an embarrassing Coppa Italia loss (0-4) to Frosinone, with the team losing to AS Roma in the Serie A, while sharing the spoils with Monza. As Torino are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on Ivan Juric’s troops. The visitors will be without Alex Meret, Natan Souza, and Mathias Olivera in Sunday’s encounter.
