Empoli vs Torino Match Preview
Torino have turned a thriller against Sassuolo their way with late goals from Simone Zaza and Andrea Belotti, now travelling to Empoli for their Matchday 37 clash sitting just outside the Serie A top 6 with a two-point gap to Milan and Roma – despite an eight-match unbeaten streak now behind them.
Toro have bagged three wins in their last four outings and only held the city rivals Juventus to a 1-1 draw along the way, which should have them very motivated to build on the success against bottom-of-the-table rivals regardless of their struggles to turn clashes their way on the road.
Empoli have picked it up lately too and promise a great challenge on Sunday too, after beating Fiorentina (1-0) and Sampdoria (1-2) in their last two outings as in-form Diego Farias led the attacking line with two goals along the way. We thus hope to see them in great shape once again and we feel the visitors will have troubles.
Indeed, Azzurri have impressed at home ground and will have to base an escape from the relegation zone on a win here, which would be their third in four outings at Carlo Castellani and should put the pressure on the rivals in the battle for survival.
We will thus stick our necks out for Empoli to shock Torino and bag all three points on Sunday, where a Home win comes at 31/20 with bet365 and looks great value despite Torino’s ambitions to show off as well.
Indeed, we’ve seen both sides enjoying their share of thriller clashes in the making and now hope for more of the same despite the high stakes involved. We’ll thus go for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/5 with Paddy Power and caught the eye of many hoping to see a winner on the day.
