Torino vs Lazio: prediction for the Serie A fixture
Torino were struggling in recent years, barely able to keep their Serie A spot. This summer, Ivan Juric became the manager of the Bulls. He has a reputation for taking over an underachieving team and making them competitive. So far, the Bulls have been showing good quality football under the new head coach.
In the first round, Torino lost 1:2 to Atalanta at home, however, they had a better game and the opponents simply got lucky. The same thing happened in the match against Fiorentina: the Bulls lost but demonstrated solid football. In the last two rounds, Torino finally had some luck. They beat Salernitana (4:0) and Sassuolo (1:0) and climbed up to 10th place in the standings.
Lazio also entered the season with a new manager. Maurizio Sarri, who replaced Simone Inzaghi as head coach, immediately delivered good results: the Eagles looked amazing in the first matches and confidently beat Empoli (3:1) and Spezia (6:1). However, the Romans faced some serious problems in the following rounds against more powerful opponents.
Lazio looked poor against AC Milan and were completely outplayed by the Rossoneri away (0:2). There was a chance to bounce back in the following round against Cagliari, but the Eagles failed to take advantage of the opponents' crisis. In the end, the game was tied (2:2). Currently, Lazio are on the eighth line in the table.
This score was recorded in 3 out of 6 previous games of Torino.
In the last two home games, Torino scored against Lazio in the first half.
In the last 8 head-to-head games at Torino, this bet played.
Torino looked decent in the last matches and confidently earned six points. But it will be very difficult for the Bulls to build on their success: Lazio have a class advantage and will obviously try to break their winless streak. Moreover, Torino have defeated Lazio at home only once over the past eight years. We believe that the visitors have a better chance of success.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to Lazio.
Prediction: Handicap (0) to Lazio

Lazio undoubtedly are the favourites: they have high-class performers, and the bench depth allows Sarri to use rotation without sacrificing the quality of his players. We think that Lazio should win, but we wouldn't expect a crushing defeat for the Bulls, who have looked solid in defense recently.
Our second bet - Lazio to win by one goal.
