Torino prepare to battle it out against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino on Sunday and the match is set to be an interesting one between two good sides.

Torino Match Betting News

Torino managed a decent 12th placed finish in the Serie A last season but there was a lot of excitement ahead of the current campaign among the club faithful following the appointment of the high profile Sinisa Mihajlovic as manager during the summer.

Mihajlovic has not gotten off to the best of starts at Torino though and they currently find themselves in 14th position in the Serie A table. During such an early stage of the season, too much cannot be taken into the league standings but Mihajlovic will surely be keen on his side to perform better in the coming weeks.

Up next for Torino is a clash against giants Roma on Sunday and a victory on the night could just be the springboard to propel Il Toro into a good run.

Danilo Fernando Avelar, Arlind Ajeti, Adem Ljajic, Maxi Lopez and Cristian Molinaro are the players out injured for the clash while the duo of Afriyie Acquah and Giuseppe Vives are both suspended.

Roma Match Betting News

Roma started off the campaign with a big disappointment after missing out on Champions League football following a qualification round defeat at the hands of Porto.

Nonetheless, Roma have managed to make a solid start to their Serie A campaign and are currently occupying 3rd place in the table.

Roma recently claimed a fine 4-0 victory over Crotone in midweek and now manager Luciano Spalletti will be hopeful of his side building on the win with another positive result against Torino away from home this weekend.

Thomas Vermaelen, Abdullahi Nura, Antonio Rüdiger and Mario Rui will be unavailable for the clash due to various injury problems.

Torino vs Roma Match Prediction

Roma have not lost against Torino in their last 12 encounters and they should head into the clash on Sunday as favourites once again.

Torino are a tough side to play against though and one can be sure that Roma will have to work very hard in order to be able to get the win on the night.
