Villarreal v Real Sociedad Team news, Betting Tips and Odds

Things have taken a turn for Inter Milan, so it’s important that they respond with three points against Torino on Monday night. The Nerazzurri haven’t completed a league double over the Granata since 2008, but their comfortable 3-0 victory in the reverse meeting suggests that there’s a gulf in quality between the pair.

Torino is lagging far behind Inter in the table, despite both sides featuring in the Europa League this term. Il Toro went into the weekend in 15th place, just seven points are clear of the bottom three. With relegation fears still hanging over the visitors, they will be pushing for the points against an Inter team who look vulnerable at the back.

Visitors on the attack
Torino has returned from the league’s shutdown with a newfound attacking edge, something that has paid off for forwarding Andrea Belotti. Belotti has scored in each of his last five Serie A appearances, while he could hurt an Inter side who look weak at the back. The hosts have conceded twice in four of their last five matches, producing one clean sheet in their last nine league games.

Torino looks well placed to trouble the hosts, as they’ve been among the goals since returning to action. The hosts have scored in each of their six games since returning, with each of their last five seeing both teams score. They head here having just notched in consecutive away defeats at Napoli, Cagliari and Juventus, so this Inter side shouldn’t be an issue.

Can Conte cool crazy Inter?
Antonio Conte’s promise to straighten Inter out isn’t looking that solid of late, following their 2-2 draw with Verona on Thursday night. The hosts have now seen both teams score in six of their seven games since the restart, which has certainly provided for the neutral at least. With Torino losing 10 trips and keeping just three clean sheets, the Nerazzurri should get forward. However, their defensive issues aren’t going anywhere, so we’re starting our predictions with both teams to score.

The restart has been tough for new Torino boss Moreno Longo. Since Longo joined Torino, they have gained just 0.78 league points per game – they had earned 1.23 points per match this season under Walter Mazzarri. He’s likely to struggle against arguably the best manager in Serie A, especially with Conte winning all five previous meetings with Torino, with his teams scoring 10 times. Following that form, a 2-1 victory for the Nerazzurri is our correct score prediction.
