AS Roma finally got off the mark for the new season in their most recent fixture, and they will be chasing a second straight victory on Sunday. However, Torino look a difficult opponent in Serie A after winning each of their last two in the competition.
Serie A Preview
Jose Mourinho will likely be concerned by the start to the season that his Roma side have made this term. The Italian giants currently sit in the bottom half of the standings after recording just one win from their opening four matches. However, that first success of the season was picked up in their most recent fixture, as they landed a 7-0 success against Empoli.
Everything appeared to click into gear in that fixture, with Paulo Dybala netting a brace for the Italian giants. However, one of the most pleasing aspects for Mourinho would have been the fact that Romelu Lukaku got off the mark for his new club on his home debut for Roma.
Torino will likely not be overwhelmed by this fixture on Sunday, as they have made an excellent start to the new season. They have won two of their opening four matches, and they have suffered just one defeat in the competition so far this term.
They come into this fixture after winning each of their last two, and a victory on Sunday could see them end the weekend in the Champions League spots. Torino have won each of their last two fixtures in Serie A without conceding, and they could go three consecutive matches for the first time since September 2019. But, they haven’t recorded three straight wins without conceding since February 1992.
Torino vs Roma Head to Head
Roma has an excellent record in this fixture, as they have won 68 of the 156 clashes between the two sides. Their record is also impressive in recent history, as they have recorded ten wins from the last 13 matches between the sides. Over the same period, Torino have recorded just a single victory.
Torino vs Roma Prediction
Torino’s start to the season can’t be overlooked this weekend. However, it looks wise to side with the visitors. Roma have an excellent record on the road in this fixture, as they have won on five of their previous six visits to Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
