Serie A: Torino vs AS Roma Live Stream
Roma is preparing to take on Torino in an away fixture for Mourinho’s side with a kick off time at 4:00 pm GMT. Roma has made a remarkable start to the 2023-24 campaign, securing two victories and netting nine goals in the span of a mere week.
In a showdown against the Moldovan champions, the visitors emerged victorious, with Romelu Lukaku extending his already impressive record by scoring in his 12th consecutive Europa League appearance, propelling Roma to a 2-1 win. The signs are becoming increasingly evident that the Giallorossi may have left their lethargic season start behind them. Initially, they had garnered just one point from their first three league matches.
However, Lukaku’s impactful performance on his debut, during the previous week’s resounding 7-0 victory over Empoli, seems to have set a new tone. Paulo Dybala, too, contributed significantly with a brace, coming tantalizingly close to securing a hat-trick as Mourinho’s squad systematically dismantled their Tuscan opponents at the Stadio Olimpico, a venue where they have historically accumulated the majority of their points.
Roma’s away form has been less convincing, with just a solitary win in their last ten Serie A away games, coupled with six defeats. Interestingly, that sole triumph came against this weekend’s hosts back in April. Dybala’s goal was the pivotal moment on that occasion, further bolstering the capital club’s impressive record against Torino, with ten wins in their last 13 league encounters, and an astounding goal tally of 25 compared to the Granata’s modest 12.
Torino has endured a torrid run against Rome in Serie A, losing five of their last six home matches, a stark contrast to their previous 19 encounters. There seems to be an overarching sense of inferiority whenever these two teams face off. Nevertheless, Torino enters Sunday’s contest following back-to-back victories on either side of the international break.
They dispatched promoted Genoa in Turin and subsequently triumphed with a convincing 3-0 win over Salernitana last weekend. Alessandro Buongiorno initiated the scoring for the Granata at Stadio Arechi, while Nemanja Radonjic, following up on his late winner from the previous week, took the reins with a brace, securing their dominance. Consequently, Torino has now strung together two consecutive victories without conceding and presently sits three points ahead of Roma in the early Serie A standings.
Roma is unbeaten in their last four games against Torino; 3 wins and a draw. Torino has only one win in their last five games; a 3-1 victory they secured at home.
Heading into the fifth round of fixtures, it’s noteworthy that only Napoli has conceded fewer shots than Roma in Serie A this season. Conversely, Torino finds itself near the bottom of the list in terms of shots on target, with only Cagliari recording fewer. This statistical backdrop sets the stage for what could potentially be a closely contested encounter in Turin, with perhaps just one goal deciding the outcome between two highly disciplined sides.
