AS Roma vs Torino Match Preview
After surprising their own fans with a win over Napoli, Roma will hope to continue their search for consistency to consolidate their position in the top-four in Serie A. Next up for them is a home match against Torino and this AS Roma vs Torino fixture will be played at the Stadio Olimpico on Friday, March 9, so check out our AS Roma vs Torino prediction and betting tips.
Roma were in the title mix not too long ago, but a poor run of fixtures to start 2018 hampered their chances. So much so, that they have slid down the pecking order and their Champions League qualification chances were looking bleak! However, all those were put to rest as they raced to a surprise 4-2 win over Napoli that not only threw the title race wide open once again, it also puts Roma back in charge of their Champions League qualification hopes. They are now third in the table after 27 games (53 pts, W16, D5, L6) which is one point of ahead of Lazio and two more than Inter in fifth who have played a game lesser. Ahead of this AS Roma vs Torino fixture, the hosts have four wins in their last five league games and should be confident of their chances.
Torino, on the other hand, still have hopes of qualifying for Europe, although they have complicated their chances with a poor run of form heading into this AS Roma vs Torino fixture. The visitors have lost their last two league games and have just three wins in their last nine league matches (W3, D4, L2). Ahead of this round of fixtures, the visitors are ninth in the table after playing 26 games (36 pts, W8, D12, L6). They are still eight points off the sixth-placed Sampdoria and had it not been for the unnecessary number of draws, they would have been slightly better. For the record, the visitors have a league-leading 12 draws!

AS Roma vs Torino Prediction
The hosts may have been struggling a bit in the recent weeks, but they look well placed to pick up a win in this encounter. The form they showed against Napoli is of the highest order and should they do the same against Torino, they should win it easily. The form of the Turkish striker Cengiz Under is a boost for the home fans as he comes into the game with six goals from the last six games. Can he lead his side once again? We are backing a home fan and even looking at Under finding the back of the net.
