Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sunday’s football game at Stadio Olimpico di Torino pits together Torino and Udinese, the two teams who are almost level on points in the Serie A standings. Il Toro have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to Spezia, beating Fiorentina, while sharing the spoils with Empoli in their last league match. Forward Antonio Sanabria should be recalled to the starting XI, while Valentino Lazaro remains on the sidelines with a ligament problem.
Pieto Pellegri is a major doubt. Meanwhile, the Zebrette head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Verona. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on draw as Torino and Udinese seem to be evenly matched at the moment. Forward Gerard Deulofeu should be the only absentee in the away side.
