Lazio are just five points ahead of Torino and the Turin side will feel this game is within their reach, especially after a morale boosting 3 – 0 win over Empoli in their last game and having kept three clean sheets in their last five matches. On the flip side, Torino have two straight league wins, having seen off Bologna and Cagliari and they have scored in four of their last five matches, on three occasions netting twice or more. In nine home matches this season, Lazio have suffered two losses and they meet a Torino side unbeaten in all their nine away matches, but have won just two, the rest ending in draws. Three of the nine away matches for Torino have ended in barren draws, while they have managed four clean sheets in the nine away league matches. Torino will hope their defensive run plays out in this clash as Lazio have scored in all but one of the nine home matches this season. Seven of the last ten meetings between the two sides have yielded over 2.5 goals. Lazio have won six and lost just once in the last 10 meetings between the two sides and both sides have scored in four of the last five meetings. In 33 meetings in history, Lazio have managed 15 wins and Torino seven.
