Placed 8th in the domestic league with 13 points, Torina after the big 4-0 loss Juventus tried to get back to the track with a 2-2 draw against Hellas Verona and then a draw against Crotone with the same number of goals. Iago Falqué scored twice while Lorenzo De Silvestri and M’baye Niang scored once in those two games.
Torino holds an advantage in Sunday’s match as they boast three ex-Roma players- Iago Falque, Adem Ljajic, and Umar Sadiq playing for them. However, they will be missing out their star striker Andrea Belotti for the clash as he is dealing with an injury.
Averaging two goals in last games do put Torina in a strong attacking position but they will have to do more if want to take out a side which is regarded one of the nest in the Italian football scene.
In last five games played in all competition, Roma has won three but after the hard-fought 0-1 loss to Napoli, they are now placed 5th in their domestic Serie A.
They are coming off a 3-3 draw against Chelsea, in a game which seemed like a loss with 0-2 hole till the 40th minute when Aleksandar Kolarov scored. And then Edin Dzeko netted two amazing goals to save Roma from the plight.
Roma will be hoping to grab three easy points but it has to outplay its own ex-players to do so, which will be interesting to watch.
