Torino – Lazio
>Torino hosts Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino in a match from the 6th round of the Serie A. Are you ready to preview this fixture with us?
Torino were very bad last season and they started the new one in the same way. Right now the Bulls are in the relegation zone of the Serie A, being 19th in the standings with just one point won so far. One draw and three losses – this is Torino’s performance in the league so far. It’s not good, that’s for sure.
Last week Torino finally won their first point for the new season. Marco Giampaolo’s team faced Sassuolo away from home and managed to score three times for a 3-3 draw.
During the week the Bulls progressed for the Coppa Italia. Torino played extra-time against Lecce at home, but went through after a 3-1 win.
Lazio didn’t have the best start of the season as well. The Eagles are currently 12th in the Serie A standings with 7 points and a record of two wins, one draw and two losses. They need to improve before the distance from the top becomes too big.
Few days ago Lazio had a game in the Champions League. Simone Inzaghi’s team faced Club Brugge in Belgium and won a point after a 1-1 draw. Joaquin Correa opened the score for Lazio, but Brugge equalised soon before the halftime break.
That’s our preview of the Serie A game between Torino and Lazio. Both teams had matches during the week although at completely different levels. According to the rumours Torino’s manager Marco Giampaolo could be sacked if he does not improve the team’s results. This is a huge pressure for him and the team. Let’s see if Lazio can use this situation in their favour. They need the win here.
