Torino v Roma Preview, Serie A, Sunday 3rd November 2013

Torino have found things tough going to the start of their new campaign and have managed to secured just 2 victories from their opening 10 matches played and you have to go back to the 22nd of September to find the last time they actually won a game when beating Bologna 1-2 away from home.

Roma continue to dominate proceedings at the top of the Serie A league table with their 1-0 victory at home against Chievo last thursday becoming their 10th straight successive victory and it does seem that it is going to take a very good side to inflict Roma’s first defeat of the season and Torino just don’t look good enough to be the ones to do it.

Torino v Roma Team News

Torino Team News:

Guillermo Rodriguez, Cesare Bovo and Marcelo Larrondo are still all unavailable for the hosts as each player continues to receive treatment for respective injury problems. Matteo Brighi has now fully recovered from his recent injury problem, but will under take a fitness test to see if he can be involved. 3-5-2 will be the likely formation which will see Cerci and Immobile leading the attack up front and support in midfield coming from D’Ambrosio, El Kaddouri and Bellomo.

Midfielder Alessio Cerci is the current top goalscorer for the club with 7.

Roma Team News:

Team Captain Francesco Totti is still a week or two away from returning to training as he recovers from injury so will again miss out on this game, but Gervinho could make the squad if he passes a late fitness test having resumed training this week. 4-3-3 will be the likely formation that manager Rudi Garcia will opt for here which will see either Florenzi, Ljajic and either Borriello or Gervinho leading the attack up front for the visitors.

Midfielder Alessandro Florenzi is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 4.

Torino v Roma Match Betting Odds Market.

Torino are struggling to win games this season and despite home advantage the online bookmakers don’t seem to see those statistics changing in this game and currently have the hosts priced up at a best price of 16/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) to do the impossible and be the first side to beat Roma this season.

The Draw is also an unlikely outcome with none of the previous 5 meetings between the two sides having finished all square, but for those who do think the draw is a possible outcome of this game they can enjoy a current best price of 5/2 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers).

Roma have not showed any signs of stopping this season and have beaten every side put in front of them so far in their opening 10 matches and with Gervinho possibly back involved after injury they certainly look the more likely to win this game and at a current best price of 10/11 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) they do look value.

Roma v Chievo Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Difficult to see Torino being able to stop Roma here as Rudi Garcia’s side have been in scintillating form so far this season and with Gervinho maybe returning back to the starting lineup if he comes through a fitness test, then Torino’s best hope from this game would be a draw.

However, even that looks beyond the hosts as they are still missing some key players from their lineup due to injuries and with Roma having a much stronger squad available this should be victory number 11 for the visitors.

The goal stats suggest this match being quite tight with only maybe one or two goals to be scored on the night, so betting markets like Under 2.5 Goals, Total Match Goals and First Goal Time could also be worth a look in the search for additional value.
