SPAL hosts Torino

SPAL hosts Torino in a game from the 18th round of the Italian Serie A.

SPAL is currently placed in the relegation zone of the Serie A. They are 18th in the league standings with 14 points won so far and a record of 3 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses. Their third win they achieved in their last match, beating the outsider Benevento away from home. They are currently on par with the 17th Genoa – both teams have the same amount of points, but Genoa has a better goal difference than SPAL.Torino, on the other hand, is 10th in the Serie A standings with 23 points and a record of 5 wins, 8 draws and 4 losses. They have been enjoying a long run without a loss, but this ended with a 1-3 loss to the leader Napoli at home. The Bulls are currently on par with the 9th Fiorentina, but having the worst goal difference.On paper, Torino is the favourites here. They are a much bigger club than SPAL and they have a better squad. Also, they are positioned better in the league since the start of the campaign. But we shall mention that SPAL’s spirits could be lifted after the win against Benevento. Maybe they are going to be a little bit more enthusiastic against Torino in front of their own fans.Torino started the season with the ambition to qualify for Europa League and although they are 10th in the standings, this is still a realistic goal. Toro is just on 4 points behind the 6th Sampdoria, so finishing in the Top 6 is still achievable. But if they want this to happen, they shall find a better consistency. And winning against SPAL is a good way to start performing better on a more regular basis.
