Today's Top Two Predictions for Torino vs Spezia
Torino have done enough this season to avoid relegation from Serie A and now they can relax, which is a good thing considering their current injury list. Visiting Spezia sit 7pts behind Torino in the table so have more motivation for the win this weekend, but will that be enough?
BTTS – No
These two sides have met three times in recent seasons and on only one occasion have both teams scored when the pair have locked horns in Serie A. Both teams have only scored in two of Torino's and two of Spezia's last six outings in the league with the hosts failing to score in three of those games and Spezia missing the target in two of theirs, so you can see why our first prediction is for BTTS – No.
Under 2.5 Goals
There is a good chance that this weekend's clash will be low-scoring as two of the last three head-to-heads between the pair have produced under 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals have also been scored, or not scored as the case may be, in each of Torino's and four of SZpezia's last six league games, adding further weight to our second prediction for Saturday Serie A match-up.
