Torino FC vs SSC Napoli
Italia Serie A
Date: Sunday, May 14 2017
Kick off at 14:00PM
Venue: Olimpico di Torino
On Sunday afternoon, Turin will host the SSC Naples. While the Turinese are no longer able to enter the international market, the Neapolitans can still be second and thus find the direct route to the royal class. As a third, the South Italians would have to walk through the playoffs and would not be safe in the group stage. That is why the match at FC Torino is of the utmost importance for the Champions League round of the last eight, because one could benefit from a slip from the Romans against Juve.
FC Turin is ninth after 35 matches and is considered a surprise team, as many have set themselves off before the season on a descent. With a 12-14-9 score at 65-56 goals, however, Turin has not only made a very positive record, but also impressed with an impressive offensive quality. Top scorer Andrea Belotti, who is currently second in the Serie A scorer’s list with 25 goals, has made the breakthrough and could be an international cearphae in the next few years. Turin lost only one of the last ten Ligaspielees and remained unbeaten in the last seven matches in series. In the last week, FC Torino led a long time 1-0 at the Juventus Stadium, before Higuain thwarted the sensation in stoppage time. FC Turin has developed enormously and should not be underestimated. In front of their home goal, Turin is on an 8-8-1 score with 38-23 goals. In 16 of 17 home games the team remained undefeated, only Juventus win in December 2016 with 3-1 at the Derby della Mole. Since then, there have been eleven home games in a row without defeat at home. This can be seen!
The SSC Naples also stands for brutal offensive football and has been convincing this year with a 23-8-4 score at 81-36 goals all along the line. Nevertheless, 77 points are the third place in Italy. Since Naples is only one point behind the Roma, a victory in Turin could be an important step in the jumping to second place, as Rome are at home in front of a difficult task against Juventus. So the victory is to be the strongest team in the league with an 11-4-2 record at 41-18 goals. Meanwhile the club has nine Ligapiele in series without defeat – there were seven straight victories. Among other things Naples triumphed in Milan against Inter, in Rome against Lazio and AS Roma. Against Juventus Turin managed to reach the home goal after 1-1. With Mertens (24 Saisontors), Insigne (15 Saisontors), Hamsik (11 Saisontors) and Callejon (11 Saisontore), Naples have enough offensive options to get FC Turin out.
