In round 16 of the Serie A season, Torino and Hellas Verona will meet on Thursday at the Olimpico di Torino to kick off the new year. Last year, Ivan Juric’s team beat the visitors to win the league twice, and they will try to do the same this year. After winning two of their four friendlies during the 2022 FIFA World Cup break, Torino will be extremely upbeat heading into the second half of the season.
Additionally, they will have drawn two of their games. Since October, they have been back in Serie A, where they have won four of their last five games and drawn two of them. Torino is currently ninth in the league with 21 points from 15 games, six points behind Atalanta for the Conference League qualification spot.
In the interim, Hellas Verona will head into the new year frantic to turn their fortunes around after a disappointing first half. With five points from 15 matches, Marco Zaffaroni’s team is near the bottom of the Serie A table and is a strong contender for relegation. Hellas Verona has lost 11 of their last 12 matches across all contests, with a goalless draw with NK Istra on December 18 being the exemption.
Torino returns to Serie A with renewed confidence following a solid run of results in friendly matches. They will be eager to take on league underdogs Hellas Verona. We are backing Toro to defeat the visitors on Thursday because of the contrast in form and Toro’s recent dominance in this match.
Prediction: Torino 2-0 Hellas Verona
In this match’s history, Torino has a better record, winning 11 of the last 26 times the two teams met. Hellas Verona has won five games during that time, splitting the spoils into ten separate occasions. Torino is unbeaten in six straight games against Hellas Verona, guaranteeing two successes and four draws since a 2-1 misfortune in February 2018.
Since their 2-1 defeat to Bologna in November, Torino has not lost in any of their last six games across all competitions. They have recorded three victories and three draws. Hellas Verona has lost 11 of their last 12 games in all competitions, including 10 straight losses in the Serie A, with one draw.
