The final round of Serie A fixtures before the World Cup break takes place this weekend. AS Roma will be looking to get back on track, as they have gone two without victory. Meanwhile, Torino will be looking for a second straight victory in Serie A.
Serie A Preview
AS Roma remain in the hunt for a Champions League spot this season, but they will need to get back on track after going two without victory in Serie A. The Italian giants currently sit sixth in the standings after winning eight of the 14 games that they have played this term. At this stage of the season, they sit just a point off the top four places in the Italian top-flight, but they have picked up just one win in their previous four fixtures.
Jose Mourinho was frustrated with his side’s performance in midweek, as he revealed that he was particularly unpleased with the performance of one player in his team. Roma played out a 1-1 draw against Sassuolo on Wednesday. Tammy Abraham put the Italian side ahead after 80 minutes, but they were pegged back five minutes later.
Torino could be well placed to inflict more misery on Roma this weekend, as they have been in solid form over recent weeks. The Italian side has won three of their previous four fixtures, and they currently sit ninth in the standings. Victory on Saturday could put them within three points of the top six in the Serie A table.
Torino’s strong run of form continued in midweek, as they recorded a 2-0 home victory against Sampdoria. The scoring in that fixture was opened after 29 minutes by Nemanja Radonjic, before the match was settled with a second goal by Nikola Vlasic with just over half an hour remaining.
AS Roma vs Torino Head to Head
Roma has a strong recent record in this fixture, as they have won the previous two. They were 1-0 winners in this exact fixture last season, and they have not conceded in the previous two against Torino. Torino’s only win in the previous five meetings was recorded in April 2021, as they won 3-1 at home.
AS Roma vs Torino Prediction
This won’t be an easy fixture for Roma in Serie A this weekend, as Torino has been in excellent recent form. Draws are becoming an issue for Mourinho’s side, and we could see this fixture ending in that result once again.
