Stadium: Olimpico (Turin)
Lazio are winless for three games in a row. Their next encounter away is against Torino, a powerful and balanced side headed by Ivan Juric. Will Lazio drop points again? Here are a few bets on Serie A Week 5 at once.
Torino to keep progressing
The previous match against Sassuolo showed again that we can’t afford to fool Torino. The visiting side allowed no chances but created plenty of chances and were duly rewarded in the match’s closing stages. Marco Piazza netted the only goal of the game.
The win against Sassuolo was Torino’s second successive victory. It was also the second win in a row. Before that, Ivan Jurić’s team thrashed Salernitana 4-0 on home soil.
Lazio are having a tough time
On Matchday 4 at the Olimpico in Rome against Cagliari, Maurizio Sarri’s side could not win. Ciro Immobile opened the scoring towards the end of the first half. But after the break, the Sardinians seized on the initiative and managed to score twice. Cagliari’s win looked to be the logical conclusion to the encounter, and without Cataldi’s fine strike a few minutes before the final whistle, there could have been trouble for Rome. It was 2-2, which was acceptable considering the way the encounter unfolded.
Lazio haven’t won in three games in a row. Before the tie with Cagliari, the Romans failed to beat AC Milan 0-2 away and Turkish Galatasaray, also away, 0-1 in the Europa League.
History of head-to-head encounters
Lazio have won 3 of their last four away games against Torino.
