One game to go in the Serie A and this match is the first on a busy Sunday of fixtures from the Italian top division. There’s plenty still to play for throughout the league and this game is of particular importance in the race for a Europa League finish. Here are our top Torino v Lazio betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
Torino bring stats of 15 wins and 15 draws against seven defeats and that has them in seventh place, three points behind Roma and the top six prize places. A home win is a must here if they are to have any chance of achieving their goals, but they’ll also need favours elsewhere.
Torino have won three and drawn one of their last five but did lose the spare in their most recent start, beaten 4-1 away to Empoli last weekend. That was a surprise result, given their form going in, and it’s one that threatens to derail their season in the closing stages. Torino must bounce back to winning ways at the first time of asking but bookies have them picked as favourites. William Hill offer 27/20 on the locals and that will be particularly popular with single backers although it will also do a job in boosting returns for those confident enough to use it in accumulators.
Visitors Show Poor Recent Form
Lazio have struggled to nail down a run of consistency in the closing weeks of the campaign and, as a result, can’t finish in the top six European places. Their last five results show two wins, two defeats and a draw and their overall form for this season reads 17-8-12. Too many losses to be considered contenders for the prizes and that’s something they will need to address over the summer. This match means less to the visitors than it does their hosts, but they can still rally to end seventh.
The visitors were last seen playing their part in a six-goal thriller with Bologna at home, scrapping for a point in a 3-3 draw. Goals for Correa, Quissanga and Savic were met by replies from Poli, Destro and Orsolini on a day both sides focussed on attack and fans were the real winners. Neutrals would certainly welcome a repeat performance here. The away win is 15/8 with William Hill but we’re on the draw at 5/2 (Unibet). That will work best as a super single played for interest stakes.
