Five losses in the last eight Serie A (SA) matches (W3, L5) halted Verona’s steady start. Six of the games during this sequence were decided by a single-goal margin, which has been the case with 75% of Verona’s SA wins/losses this campaign (nine of 12). Five of the last eight wins/losses in SA H2Hs at this venue followed the same pattern. Verona have managed five first-half clean sheets across their last seven SA games, therefore unsurprisingly seven of the ten goals they conceded during this period arrived after half-time. That is in line with Verona’s record in their last ten home SA H2Hs – 11 of the 16 goals conceded came during the second half. < p>
Torino are a second-half side themselves, scoring 11 of their 18 SA goals after the break. With three wins from their last four SA games, the visitors travel here confident of challenging for a top-six spot, especially amid back-to-back away wins ‘to nil’. All seven SA away games involving Torino have actually produced a winner (W3, L4), with five decided by a single goal. One nagging concern will be that nine of Torino’s 15 SA matches saw them concede first. Even more so because 12 of Torino’s 14 SA matches (excluding the goalless draw) saw the winner open the scoring.
Players to watch: Davide Faraoni has been Verona’s only goal scorer with both his SA strikes, each time levelling the score at 1-1. Meanwhile, Torino’s Simone Zaza has been Torino’s first goal scorer with each of his three SA strikes this season. Stat attack: Four of Verona’s last five SA games produced over 2.5 goals, while only one of the previous ten witnessed the same.
