ITALY ........ SERIE A


Neither side can afford to lose this one. Despite taking a point off Milan last week, other results did not go Parma's way and they now find themselves in the drop zone. A point today would take them back out, if only for 24 hours and would be their 4th stalemate in 5 starts. Torino are only 4 points clear of the relegation zone, so every point is vital, they are Serie A draw specialists, with 13 of their 23 starts, including 6 from 11 at home, ending all square.
Obviously, I favour the draw, but feel that the half time stalemate offers better value. Both are likely to be extremely cautious early on , with any more ambitious plans taking shape after the break, if at all.

4.5 points half time draw 2.05 + ... 2.10 Corals/ 2.08 + exchanges.

Good Luck.
