The form and consistency is with the Magpies and one must expect Rafa Benitez’s team to be fully fit after having a week to prepare for this game. Chris Houghton’s team lack the self-belief and have major problems in playing the ball forward. And on current circumstances, we can only back Newcastle to bag a narrow win here.
Torino are coming on the back of an excellent form and this is a huge confidence booster for the team when taking on a team like Juventus. But, we need to understand that their 5-match unbeaten streak at the start of the season came against teams that finished outside the top six in Serie A last season.
Yet, it is extremely difficult to take points away at the Juventus Stadium. The only thing that punter must consider here is a much better competitive effort from the visitors. So, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals are all probable happenings in this fixture. But, the Old Lady are expected to bag all three points when the final whistle blows.
In this fixture, there is no doubt that the hosts are the favourites. Based on everything above, and their head to head encounters, we also believe there will be three or more goals in total and goals on both sides of the pitch.
SPAL have failed to score in their last three fixtures. That’s of no surprise though as they have not been able to venture forward and have rather opted to park the bus in a quest to try to grind out a draw. It’s backfired and rather than earning the point they want, they end up with nothing to show for it. Whilst they haven’t been humiliated 4-0 or 5-0, it ultimately doesn’t matter – they’re still losing and aren’t expected to get anything out of this fixture against Napoli, either.
The visitors are the absolute favourites in this fixture. We expect them to return home with the easily gained three points and possibly demolishing Montpellier with big goal difference.
