Torino vs Shakhter Soligorsk Match Preview
Torino have been in great shape and outclassed Debrecen with seven goals to one in two legs, with goals from Belotti (x2), Ansaldi, Zaza (x2), Izzo, and Millico. They now look to keep it up as they host Shakhter Soligorsk for their 3rd Qualifying Round Europa League clash on Thursday.
Toro have thus built on a four-match winning streak since the end of the last season, keeping up a great goalscoring tally. They will surely be in a good mood once again and looking to prove themselves dominant against the Belarus rivals – despite only looking to gain momentum and find their best fitness.
Shakhter Soligorsk have a lengthy unbeaten streak of their own, where they beat Malta rivals Hibernians (2-0 on aggregate) and Esbjerg (2-0) in two narrow Europa League clash already. They come into the match amid their campaign and have obviously seen more competitive clashes behind them, which will have the visitors hopeful they can capitalize.
Miners have also built on the success with Belarus Cup success against Lokomotiv Gomel (1-2), where early goals from Vladimir Khvashchinskiy and Nikola Antic proved enough for the Quarter-finals. They will need to step up if they’re to cause an upset, as Shakhter lacks consistent goalscorers.
We don’t feel they have what it takes to make it happen, though, and we’ll now rather stick with Torino to turn this one their way and earn a comfortable advantage ahead of the trip to Bulgaria – as we go for a Home win to Nil at 4/7 with Coral.
With that in mind, we do hope for a narrow occasion and we’re thus also sticking our necks out for a low-scoring contest, where Under 2.5 Goals FT comes at 7/5 with bet365 and looks like a generous pick despite a one-sided clash looming.
