Torino is doing very well this season and is close to the top six and thus a place that gives right to European football. The next hurdle is Parma, which only took one point in the last three games.
For Torino the season started with a sour defeat against AS Roma in the last minute, since then there is a lot to cheer for supporters. In the ten games that followed, only Napoli was lost. In the past game even striker Andrea Belotti seemed to find his turn somewhat. The then 22-year-old Italian scored no less than sixteen goals in the season 2016/2017 before the end of January, not for nothing was there interest from Chelsea and Manchester United and a bid of 65 million euros from Arsenal during the winter transfer period were rejected . That season he ended on 26 goals, last season he did not seem to be a shadow of the leading specialist before and he only made ten in the entire competition.
Also this season he attracted little attention, in his first 900 minutes he only made two goals, one of which was a penalty kick. Last match he doubled his goal total in the first half by scoring at Sampdoria from a penalty and with the head. Because Torino as usual also managed to find the net in the second half, a convincing 1-4 victory was placed on the scoreboard. Torino managed to score a goal in the second half of the season in nine of the twelve games.
Parma has had a good series since the first interland break with victories over Inter, Cagliari, Empoli and Genoa, in which only Napoli was lost in between. After the second international break, however, it only reached one point in three games, after defeats against Lazio and Atalanta was played 0-0 against Frosinone last weekend.
In this last game in house, more was expected from Parma, Frosinone is in the relegation zone and has eight points less. Coach D’Aversa felt that his team gave away too many chances in the first hour, then Parma came in with ten men thanks to a direct red card for Stulac and he defended his team in defense. Nevertheless, Frosinone was the only team who was entitled to a win, in the last minute goalkeeper Sepe prevented this with a nice reflex on a header from Rai Vloet. Yet the defense does not seem to be the biggest problem for D’Aversa at the moment. I gialloblu have a lot of trouble to score, it only made ten goals in eleven matches and did not succeed in making three goals in a row.
