Today match predictions for Turin vs Shakhter Soligorsk
Torino host Shakhter Soligorsk in the first leg between the Europa League third round teams. The match will be played on Thursday, August 8, starting at 18:00 UK at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
Turin are looking to continue their march in European club tournaments when they accept the representative of Belarus, Shakhter Soligorsk, on Thursday. The hosts are the big favorites for the win and are expected to achieve convincing success in front of their own fans. The Serie A season starts at the end of August, but Turin has shown he is in good form with Debrecen in the second qualifying round. The graduates of Walter Mazzarri achieved two convincing victories with 3:0 and 4:1, showing very good football in attack. Given that the team finished eighth in Serie A last season, and this seemed to leave them out of Europe again, they received a small gift from UEFA after Milan was banned from participating in European club tournaments. Now Turin is extremely motivated to grab his chance and participate in the group stage of the tournament. How serious an obstacle for them will the Belarusian Shakhter be?
The guests have recorded six wins in their last seven games and are in pretty good shape. They eliminated Esbjerg by a total score of 2-0 in the second round of the Europa League, and previously eliminated the Hibernians team. This visit to Turin is a big step for the club as they will face a strong team from one of the best European leagues.
Shakhter Soligorsk has no defeat on foreign soil in the tournament this season, but it will be a very difficult game for the team. The two teams have been drafted in six of Turin’s last seven games, which will give the visitors a chance to score. In my opinion we can see the resultant match on Thursday night and our today match prediction was bet on the option of Turin to win over 2.5 goals in the match.
