Cremonese seek first league win

Cremonese is hoping to finally score a victory in the league when they go against Torino, who is far ahead from them in the standings. Cremonese is currently winless in the league, which puts them at the bottom of the league table. They come into this game with hopes to at least score a win, as they are likely to be eliminated in the contest. Torino on the other hand is eyeing to get a top-seven finish in the league, despite a loss on their previous match. They halted their winning streak against Milan, when they suffered a 1-0 defeat. This meeting will be on February 21, 2023, at 3:45 AM (GMT+8), with Torino as hosts.

History of these two teams is dated way back 1923, where they had their first meeting in history. Across all competitions, these two teams already crossed paths for 29 times. From those 40 meetings, the hosts showed dominance, winning 16, compared to the visitors’ five. Additionally, from their last five meetings, it was the hosts who took home the victory. On the other hand, the visitors’ struggles can be seen this season. In fact, they are scoreless in three of their last five away matches. Moreover, they are also the second-worst when it comes to attacks and defense.

Cremonese is the only team in the Serie A that have yet to win a single match in the tournament this season. They are from a devastating 3-0 defeat against Napoli, which is their third consecutive defeat in the contest. In addition to their misfortunes, during their last two games, they have failed to score. If they continue playing this way, they no longer have the chance of recording at least a single win this season. They are currently at the most bottom of the league table, with just eight points. In fact, they are most likely be eliminated in the league, considering their record. In the Coppa Italia, they were able to eliminate giants Napoli and Roma, where they can at least gain confidence from.

Johan Vasquez is out in this match, as he is serving a suspension. Moreover, David Okereke, and Cyriel Dessers, may both miss this match as well due to their injuries.

Torino’s current run in the league is the complete opposite of their opponents. It is just unfortunate that their three-game undefeated run was halted by a 1-0 defeat against AC Milan. In the league table, this squad is at the 10th, with 30 points, but they are still in-need of more wins. Currently, they are just three points above the 13th place Lecce, so they cannot afford to continue dropping points. When it comes to meeting their opponents, they won their last five meetings. Additionally, when hosting their match, they only suffered one loss against the visitors at home. However, their number one enemy is their inconsistency, which might affect their performance.

Pietro Pellegri is hoping to be back for Torino in this match after missing their previous game due to a thigh issue. However, Samuele Ricci, Valentino Lazaro, and David Zima are all out in this game due to their injuries.

Prediction:

Torino (2.5)
Odds: -0.83
