Torino drew for the sixth time in 11 games prior to the international break and with just two wins in that time they remain down in 10th as Joe Hart hasn’t kept a clean sheet in 10. Udinese, meanwhile, moved to within four points of their hosts with victories over Pescara and Palermo, though both of those are in the bottom-three and Udinese had won only one of 10 prior to that.
Torino’s only home defeat this term came against Juventus and if we exclude top-seven opposition, they’re W7-D1-L0 on their own turf, suggesting they look an excellent price here at 1.91. However, the fact that they’ve kept only one clean sheet in their last 12 at home suggests that they might have to score at least twice if they’re to pick up three points here.
Having said that, Udinese failed to score in five straight away games before they put three past bottom of the league Pescara, whilst their top scorer Thereau is injured. As a result, this looks a good opportunity for Torino to keep only their third home clean sheet of the season, though even if Udinese do score the fact that Torino have netted 10 across their last three at home suggests they have enough firepower to outgun their visitors. We’re backing Torino to win for the eighth time at home this season.
