Torino will face Bologna at Stadio Olimpico di Torino, in Torino, at Italian Serie A 28th Round. Torino against Bologna is the match with big interest after their previous matches at Italian Serie A.¬†Review our thoughts on this match here below.¬†
Torino is playing great football this season, as they now stand at the 6th place in Serie A standings. They left such good teams behind like Atalanta, Lazio, and Sampdoria. Torino played perfectly their last 5 home matches, as they won it all. Moreover, they scored 10 goals and kept a clean sheet in all games by collecting 15 points.¬†If their good game continues and will be the same until the end of the season, then they will have a chance to compete for the Europa League, or even the Champions League.
All the main players of the club will fight on the field for 3 more very important points this season.
This season, the team performs well in creating long shot opportunities, aerial duels, protecting the lead and stealing the ball from the opposition.¬†Unfortunately, this team has weak sides in keeping possession of the ball, defending counter attacks and avoiding fouling in dangerous areas.¬†It is very likely that the team will play defensive football, will counter-attack often and play carefully.
Bologna this season playing far away from good football, as a result, they are under the risk to be relegated to Serie B. So far they won only 4 games out of 27 and scored only 22 goals. However, in the last 10 away matches, they scored at least 1 goal in 9 games, failing to score only against Parma. Moreover, they won only once away and already lost 8 games in 14 matches.¬†This season, their main task is to save their place in Italy’s top league. They need to fix all their mistakes next season and start everything from the beginning.
Worst of all, the main squad striker Federico Santander will miss the next match due to an injury. All other main squad players are fit and will play this important match.
This season, of course, there are more weaknesses than strengths. But even so, the team is good at aerial duels, defending set pieces and protecting the lead. They are weak at finishing scoring chances, avoiding individual errors and defending against skillful players.¬†Most likely, the team will play in defense much more often than in the attack. The absence of the main attacker will worsen the effectiveness of attacks.
The last match between these teams was in the 9th round. This game finished with 2:2 result at¬†Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, in Bologna. Torino controlled the match and made more goal attempts more often, however, Bologna was very productive and scored 2 goals¬†from 3 shots on target.
