Torino ride out to face Lazio in a long-postponed fixture this Tuesday at Stadio Olimpico with kickoff at 21:30.
Both sides have issues that they would like to fix in this fixture. Lazio have not enjoyed their campaign this season and they come into this fixture on the back of the Derby della Capitale defeat where they suffered a 2-0 against Roma through well-crafted goals by Mkhitaryan and Pedro. Lazio will again miss the Champions League football next season as they are currently in position 6 and will finish in that position regardless of the results today.
Torino, on the other hand, have endured a miserable month and have been in the worst form recently as they have conceded 11 goals in just two matches. They come into this match on the back of a couple of stingy defeats from Ac Milan (7-0) and Spezia (4-1).
Torino are now in the danger of relegation as they are only 3 point ahead of Benevento and will need to salvage all the three points to secure their safety.
Lazio have won six home matches in row with Ciro Immobile being their top scorer with 20 goals. Torino have not won in any of their three last matches against Lazio. Andrea Belotti is Torino’s top scorer with 13 goals this season.
