Fiorentina: Poor Run of Form
Fiorentina has taken one point from its last three Serie A matches and finds itself 14 points adrift of the top four. Vincenzo Italiano’s troops will now turn their attention to Coppa Italia, where they kicked off their campaign with a short 1-0 win over Sampdoria in the round of 16 on Jan. 12.
The last time Fiorentina won this competition was back in 2001 when it beat Parma 2-1 on aggregate. The last time it qualified in the final was back in 2013-14 when it lost to Napoli. Just when it seems like the Viola has managed to find the desired form, a result crisis follows very quickly. Such is the case with the beginning of 2023. Its inconsistency is strange, so we won’t include it in our soccer picks and parlays.
Perhaps holding Lazio 1-1 in the capital on Sunday will provide a timely boost after losing its previous two matches without scoring a goal, but this is a cup match, and form and records go out of the window. Lucas Quarta, Gaetano Castrovilli, and Arthur Cabral remain on the sidelines with injuries, while Riccardo Saponara is pushing for a start after producing a fine display in the Stadio Olimpico showdown. New arrival Salvatore Sirigu could debut against his former club.
Torino: Value on the Visitors
Torino has been without a trophy in Italy for a long time, and perhaps the cup is the right opportunity for Il Toro to finally win something, given that it is miles away from the title in Serie A.
Any chances of Ivan Juric’s troops playing in Europe via Serie A seem slim, even if the team now leads old rival Juventus by four points due to recent off-field events. But having beaten the Italian champions after sweeping past Palermo, Cittadella and AC Milan, Coppa Italia glory could be theirs this season.
Torino maintained its fine away form last time out, fighting back from two goals down to claim a thrilling 2-2 draw at Empoli on Saturday. The visitors play firm football and are considered a defensively well-organized team. We saw only six goals in their opening five games after the break.
Suspended centre-back Koffi Djidji and injured Pietro Pellegri join longer-term absentee Valentino Lazaro in missing the trip to Fiorentina. However, Ola Aina recently returned and is a contender to start on Wednesday. If you’re betting online, the value is definitely on Il Toro.

Fiorentina vs Torino Picks and Prediction
The hosts enter this clash as favorites, priced at +100 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at 2½.
While Torino has put together a fine run of form, Fiorentina has struggled in recent weeks and will look to find their feet quickly. However, Italiano’s men have been solid at home this term and we expect them to find the back of the net.
With more momentum behind it than its misfiring hosts, Torino can build on a good away record this season, but this is a cup match, so we will avoid the moneyline and focus on the goals market.
