Match Preview: Roma and Torino meet again in race for European football

Roma and Torino will renew their rivalry on Monday, just three days after their midweek Coppa Italia clash.

The two teams played out a 1-1 draw in Turin in Serie A back in August, and both will be looking to boost their European hopes with a victory in the Italian capital.

Roma are currently in fifth place in the table, four points ahead of Torino in seventh.

Roma have been in good form in Serie A of late, winning four of their last five games. They have also been strong at home this season, winning eight of their 13 league games at the Stadio Olimpico.

Torino, on the other hand, have struggled on the road this season, losing all five of their league games against teams currently above them in the table.

Recent history also favors Roma, who are unbeaten in their last 22 home games in all competitions against teams they were favorites to beat.

Key players to watch

One key player to watch for Roma will be young Dutch defender Dean Huijsen, who has impressed with his size and attacking ability. He has scored in each of Roma’s last two Serie A wins.

For Torino, Duván Zapata will be the dangerman. The Colombian striker has scored 10 goals in Serie A this season, and he will be hoping to add to his tally against Roma.

Prediction

Roma are the clear favorites to win this game, based on their recent form and home advantage. A 2-1 victory for the Giallorossi is the most likely outcome.
