Torino vs Lazio Predictions & Tips
Torino vs Lazio predictions as Lazio continue to chase Juventus in the Serie A title race. Can they claim a victory away to Juve's local rivals Torino? Read on for our free Serie A predictions and betting tips.
Reason For Torino vs Lazio Predictions
Immobile has scored 95 goals in Simone Inzaghi's 150 Serie A matches as Lazio boss.
Torino have lost all three home meetings with the top four this season.
Lazio have scored 15 goals in seven clashes away to bottom-half teams.
The visitors have won 17 of their last 20 Serie A matches.
Landmark for Lazio
A comeback at home to Fiorentina has kept Lazio in the title fight as they approach a landmark clash. This will be Lazio's 150th Serie A game under Simone Inzaghi (W83 D29 L37) - the Biancocelesti have scored 296 goals in the process. Inzaghi could see his key player overtake his brother this weekend, as Ciro Immobile has scored 95 Serie A goals under Simone Inzaghi. No player has scored more under a single manager in the competition, in the three points for a win era (level with Filippo Inzaghi under Carlo Ancelotti).
Immobile is also one goal away from matching his best tally in a single Serie A season (29 in 2017/18). He'll be looking to notch here, but he and his team need to stay focused on what their great achievements under Inzaghi have led to. They have a serious chance of landing the title, with their visit to Turin hugely symbolic as they try to reel in Juventus.
Trouble for Toro
Torino aren't comfortable following their loss to Cagliari at the weekend. They come into this clash in 14th, just six points clear of the drop zone. They've lost more home games (6) than they've won this season (5). It's been a disappointing season, while they're further weakened here without fans in the stadium. It's a more even playing field, but Torino were already struggling against top sides.
The hosts have lost all three home matches against sides in the top four. In addition to that, they were beaten 4-0 in the reverse fixture in Rome earlier this season. Torino have won only two of their last 12 Serie A games against Lazio (D4 L6), conceding in each game in the process. Given that run, we are siding with the visitors in our predictions.
Lazio's quality to tell
Lazio lost their last away game against Atalanta, ending a series of seven wins and two draws on the road - the last time they lost two away games in a row was In September 2019 (vs SPAL and Inter). Meanwhile, Lazio have only lost one meeting with a bottom half side this season. They've scored 15 goals in seven away trips to teams in the bottom 10, scoring twice or more in six of those games.
Lazio are blowing past opponents in their title bid, winning 17 of their last 20 matches. They've managed eight away victories this season and they can continue their great form given how poor Torino have been, we think that Lazio are incredibly well priced for the points this week.
Torino's striker Andrea Belotti could score in three Serie A appearances in a row for the third time in the competition: also doing so in December 2016 and April 2017. That's part of a new, more attacking style for the Granata. They are likely to get forward to test Lazio here, who have seen both teams score in each of their games since the restart. As a result, we are going with a 2-1 victory for the visitors as our correct score prediction.
