Roma vs Torino Prediction & Match Preview


Roma vs Torino Prediction & Match Preview

AS Roma vs Torino
Italy Serie A
Date: Thursday, 17 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.

A rampant Roma recorded their biggest win of the season on Sunday when they took Bologna apart in a 1-5 demolition job so they will be in good spirits ahead of hosting Torino here. 

The visitors – who are down in the depths of Serie A right now – can feel somewhat aggrieved at having only picked up a point from their last three games as they pushed Juventus and Udinese close and their level of performance has been fairly decent of late. 

They frequently find the net but still conspire to lose though, so a Roma win in a match featuring over 2.5 goals is the prediction.

Team News:

Roma will continue to evaluate the condition of defenders Gianluca Mancini and Marash Kumbulla, who are both doubtful for Thursday. Former Verona man Kumbulla came off early against Bologna and will be assessed ahead of kickoff.

Bryan Cristante was this week suspended for blasphemy by Serie A's disciplinary board, while Davide Santon is still struggling with a thigh injury. Therefore, Juan Jesus is likely to join Chris Smalling and Roger Ibanez in yet another patched-up Giallorossi defence - a recurring theme of the 2020-21 campaign for coach Paulo Fonseca.

Torino boss Marco Giampaolo must surely be reaching his final gambit, as he must cover the absence of Simone Verdi, Cristian Ansaldi and young winger Vincenzo Millico, who all remain out with muscular injuries. Mergim Vojvoda should continue to cover for Ansaldi on the left flank of the Granata's 3-5-2.

Forward Federico Bonazzoli, a scorer in the Udinese defeat, is tipped to take Simone Zaza's place alongside top scorer Andrea Belotti from the start.

Roma possible starting lineup:
Lopez; Ibanez, Smalling, Kumbulla; Karsdorp, Veretout, Pellegrini, Spinazzola; Pedro, Mkhitaryan; Dzeko

Torino possible starting lineup:
Sirigu; Bremer, Lyanco, Rodriguez; Singo, Lukic, Rincon, Linetty, Vojvoda; Bonazzoli, Belotti
