Torino v Parma Preview

Torino will play their first match in nearly four months when they face Parma behind closed doors on  Saturday evening.

The COVID-19 pandemic that has affected almost every country in the world has at least subsided enough to allow Serie A football to resume - albeit under strict regulations.

Daniele Baselli and Simone Verdi are injured for Saturday's match, with the former not expected to return until next season.

Whilst it seems bizarre to discuss a teams 'form' due to the enforced break during the season, it is fair to say that Toro's most recent results do not make for pretty reading.

Torino have lost their last six Serie A matches, with coach Moreno Longo still looking for his first point as Toro coach. The Granata will be looking to pick up some early points in order to secure their Serie A status as quickly as possible, as their terrible form has pushed them into relegation danger.

Parma are currently in 9th place and will be looking to make a late dash towards the European places now the season as resumed.

Prediction
Torino 1-1 Parma
