Torino vs Lazio Match Preview
Torino go into their final game of the season knowing that even if they hold off Lazio for seventh position in Serie A, they will not be playing European football next term.
More often than not, now that Italy has four places in the Champions League plus the standard three in the Europa League, seventh place ought to be enough to squeeze into the lesser of the two continental competitions.
That is because the Coppa Italia winner will usually come from the top seven. However, this season Lazio lifted the trophy – and with one more league match to play they are eighth in the table, one point behind Torino.
Of course, if Lazio win in Turin, it would all be academic anyway. But Torino can cite the two big clubs from the capital as having shattered their European hopes because even if they were to draw level on points with sixth-placed Roma, they cannot overtake them on the head-to-head rule.
Essentially, then, this is a dead rubber, which is why it kicks off at a stand-alone start time because no other match is dependent upon its outcome.
At the time of writing on Friday morning, Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi was reported to be a contender for the available Juventus job and so he will be keen to finish with a flourish, but the draw looks the best bet here between two evenly-matched teams with little to play for.
