Roma faces Torino in a match of the 28th round of the Italian Serie A.
Roma: The hosts are in the 3rd position in the league, having won 53 points so far. After a superb away win (2-4) against the table toppers Napoli last weekend, Roma will look to consolidate their top-four position against an indifferent Torino side in Serie A. Also, they have won four of their last five matches. However, Roma still has to address their faltering home form, as they have won just one of their last five games, having just one clean sheet in their last eight Serie A games.
Torino: The away team is currently in the 9th position of the table, with 36 points won, after 8 wins, 12 draws and 6 losses. They come into this match after a loss (2-1) against Verona in an away match. With two consecutive defeats in the league, Torino starts to worry that the wheels are coming off after a reasonably successful season. Furthermore, they have failed to win 9 of their last 10 away matches.
Conclusion: The hosts are going through a great moment of the season, apart from the fact that they have a huge gap between offensive and defensive quality. Roma has won their last seven Serie A encounters against Torino, slotting 21 goals and conceding seven. Since Roma has seen 2 or more goals in 8 of their last 9 home matches against Torino in all competitions we expect another high-scoring match.
