I am going to oppose Sampdoria, they have struggled on the road all season and their only away win came at basement club Reggina.
Torino are desperate for the win, that could take them out of the drop zone, their coach received the dreaded "vote of confidence" this week, which is always a worry, but in fairness, I think that they have been playing better than results would suggest. Whenever I have seen them, they have posed an offensive threat, but the goals have just not come, they need more from the strikers, especially Rolando Bianchi, whom the coach has backed to get the goals to keep his side in Serie A. They have a difficult sequence of fixtures, with trips to Palermo and Milan in the next couple of weeks and failure to collect three points today, is going to leave them with a very stiff task to survive. Hosts continue to see a lot of the ball, they have had the bulk of possession in recent starts against Juventus and away to Cagliari, two teams playing well and with just a little luck in front of the sticks, they can get the win that they crave today.
6 points Torino -1/4 ball 2.11 asian line.
