Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Torino will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Cagliari when they take on Salernitana in the Serie A round 23. Il Toro are only four points behind the Conference League berth and, no doubt, their performance in the last league match is fuelling fans with optimism ahead of upcoming challenges. All Ivan Ilic, Nemanja Radonjic, and Perr Schuurs are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
I Granata, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only 12 points on their account. Given Salernitana’s four-game losing run in the Italian top flight, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. Both Coulibaly and Jovane Cabral are on international duty, while all Dia, Fazio, and Pirola are major doubts. In the first half of the season Torino defeated Salernitana 3-0 and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
