Torino Prediction – Can Torino progress in domestic cup?

After recording an impressive 2-0 win away from home at Roma in Serie A on the weekend, Torino will return to their Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino looking to back up that excellent result by progressing through to the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.

Although they also suffered a recent 2-1 loss at home to lowly SPAL in Serie A, that’s been Torino’s only defeat out of their last 5 matches overall in all competitions, and includes wins against Genoa (1-0 away), 2-1 at home v Fiorentina and the aforementioned victory at Roma.

With the win over Roma, Torino moved up into 9th place on the Serie A ladder but as we know, the league form can be thrown out of the window when the cup competitions come along and having won just 1 of their last 6 matches at home, it may be best to avoid backing a home win here.

However, 9 of Torino’s 12 matches at home so far in all competitions this season have seen over 2.5 goals scored, and further goals could feature here on Thursday night with the likes of forwards Belotti (9 goals) and Berenguer (4 goals) up front for the hosts.

Genoa Prediction – Can Genoa build on weekend win?

A 2-1 home win over Sassuolo in Serie A on the weekend will give Genoa plenty of confidence ahead of this last 16 Coppa Italia tie away at Torino on Thursday night as the visitors avoided a third defeat on the trot in the Italian top flight.

Genoa had previously fallen to back-to-back defeats against Sampdoria and Inter Milan in 1-0 and 4-0 losses respectively in the domestic top division, while results away from home have been pretty ordinary for Genoa as they’ve failed to win any of their last 10 matches on their travels in all competitions.

This poor sequence of results on the road include 6 defeats and 4 draws, so it’s also worth avoiding backing Genoa for the win on the road in this cup tie also, but 8 of Genoa’s last 10 away matches have also resulted in over 2.5 goals.

The visitors are also capable of hitting the back of the net too as they possess dangerous forwards in the shape of Kouame (5 goals) and Pandev (4 goals), so goals seem the way to go in this Coppa Italia clash.


Key-Facts – Torino vs Genoa

  • 9 of Torino’s 12 matches at home in all competitions have seen over 2.5 goals
  • 8 of Genoa’s last 10 away matches have also resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • A place in the quarter-finals is up for grabs for both teams here


Betting Tips Verdict

Torino have held the upper hand in previous exchanges but goals looks the most likely outcome here.
