Spal have the worst away record in Serie A...
<div><h2>Torino vs Spal</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow"><strong>Saturday, December 22, at Olipico di Torino</strong></a></p><p>Torino will bid to take advantage of Spal’s horrendous away record when they host Serie A’s bottom club on Saturday. The Biancazzurri have recorded seven defeats and one draw from their eight away games so far this season. They have scored just two goals in that time and conceded 14. Torino keep things pretty tight at the back, and they should fancy their chances of grinding out a narrow victory in this match.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Torino are ninth in the table after battling to a 3-3 draw away at Verona on Sunday. Captain and star striker Andrea Belotti missed the game with an injury, leaving Simone Zaza to deputise up front. He failed to score, but Christian Ansaldi banged in a brace and Alejandro Berenguer Remiro was also on target. Belotti may be fit to return for this game, which would see Zaza drop to the bench. Iago Falque and Lyanco are out injured.</p><p><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Spal actually managed to find the back of the net when they travelled to the capital to face Roma at the weekend, but they still lost 3-1. Andrea Petagna was the man to grab the goal and that took his tally for the season to five. Only three other Spal players have scored this season, as Federico Di Francesco, Jasmic Kurtic and Mattia Valoti have five goals between them. Di Francesco cannot get into the team right now, as Igor has started on the left. Mohamed Fares and Marco D’Alessandro are out injured, along with full-backs Arkadiusz Reca and Jacopo Sala.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>This is a game that Torino really need to win as they bid to reignite their bid for a European place. They have won their last two home games 1-0 against Spal and they will bid to secure another low-scoring triumph on Saturday. Belotti would give them a huge boost by returning, but they will be pleased to see Ansaldi looking so composed in front of goal. The Torino defence should not be unduly bothered by a Spal team that has failed to score in six of their eight away games, and the hosts should edge this one.</p><p><a href=";a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Tip: Torino and under 4.5 goals at 2.00 (evens) with Betway</strong></a></p></div>
