Against All Odds: Torino's slump to continue in Serie A

How Torino could do with Ciro Immobile back on their books

Torino haven't been able to live up to last season's promise this time around and Paul Robinson thinks they have to be opposed again with Palermo in town.

"Just eight goals in 13 league fixtures is an abysmal return for a club who got 58 in 38 last term and it’s hard to see where their next win will come from."

We have to go back to October for Torino's last victory and that came against bottom of the table, Parma. Since then it's been two draws and four defeats in all competitions and they come into this match on the back of three straight losses in Serie A.

Giampiero Ventura's side only scored once during that spell and they are without a doubt missing the services of Ciro Immobile. Just eight goals in 13 league fixtures is an abysmal return for a club who got 58 in 38 last term and it's hard to see where their next win will come from. Even at home they haven't won in three - failing to score on all three occasions.

Opponents, Palermo, are on the up and are currently on a five match unbeaten streak. Victories over Chievo, Milan and Parma were accompanied by draws with Udinese and Genoa, and those results have lifted them to 12th in Serie A.

Giuseppe Iachini's men were promoted back to the top flight from Serie B this year and they have more than acquitted themselves with respect. Even away from home, 'Rosanero' have avoided defeat in half of their fixtures and they have already had to travel to Napoli, Juventus and AC Milan - the latter ending in a famous 2-0 win.

I simply can't have Torino at odds-on here, so with their price trading at around the 1.9420/21 mark, I have to make them my lay of the day.
