Lazio and Torino would have been appeased with their starts to the new Serie A season, as they have both picked up two wins apiece. But, which side will be able to claim a third win of the campaign on Thursday?
Serie A Preview
Lazio’s target in Serie A this season will be to finish in the Champions League places. They are already in a decent position for that challenge, having picked up seven points from four games this term. However, their recent form has been slightly disappointing, as they have failed to win their last two. That comes after a very impressive start to the campaign, which saw them pick up wins in each of their two first league games. Lazio were beaten by AC Milan in their last game on the road, before suffering defeat against Galatasaray in the Europa League. However, they were at least able to end that run of defeats last weekend, as they picked up a point against Cagliari. Lazio needed to come from behind to pick up a point, with Danilo Cataldi scoring their second goal with seven minutes left to play. Ciro Immobile had earlier put Lazio into a 1-0 lead.
Torino are just two places below Lazio in the league standings after four rounds of fixtures this season. However, their recent form has been much better. After two straight defeats to start the new Serie A campaign, Torino have struck back to win their last two. They have scored five goals in those two fixtures, and haven’t conceded once. Their most recent victory was last Friday, as they overcame Sassuolo to pick up a 1-0 victory on the road. Marko Pjaca scored the only goal in the win for Torino.
Torino vs Lazio Head to Head
Torino have struggled in their recent fixtures against Lazio, with the visitors having won three of the previous four. The only put that Torino have picked up against Lazio in the last four came towards the end of last season, as the sides played out a 0-0 draw.
Torino vs Lazio Prediction
Torino come into this fixture in very good form, and that gives them a great chance of getting a point. However, we expect the visiting side to continue their excellent record against Torino by picking up a fourth win in five games against their rivals on Thursday.
