Torino haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, hitting the target in one hundred percent of their last 6 games.
They have totted up the amount of 9 during that time while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 6. Historical results aside, we must now wait to see whether that trend might be replicated in this next match or not.
