Match preview

Even though Torino failed to pick up all three points against Serie A's basement team on Sunday evening, Moreno Longo's men ensured their survival in the top flight as they recorded just their sixth draw of the campaign.Following 18th-placed Lecce's defeat to Bologna, Torino just needed a point against SPAL to stave off relegation, and Il Toro now have an insurmountable seven-point lead over Lecce with just two games left to play.Andrea Belotti's 16 goals have done little to arrest Torino's slump this season, but with their Serie A status confirmed ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, Longo now has the time to reassess the club's situation as they look to avoid another subpar season next time around.While a home fixture against a high-flying Roma side will not will the Torino faithful with confidence, Longo's men are on a three-game unbeaten streak at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, with Lazio the only team to walk away from Torino's territory with all three points since the restart.Meanwhile, Roma continued their remarkable run of form as they enjoyed a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina at the weekend, with Jordan Veretout netting two penalties for Paulo Fonseca's side against his former club.The Frenchman's second spot kick was the subject of much controversy after the game, but Roma held on nonetheless to register their fifth win from their last six games in the Italian top flight.The top-four dream is dead in the water for Roma, however, and Fonseca will no doubt want to use these final two games to consolidate his side's hold on fifth spot with AC Milan breathing down their necks.With a final-day fixture against recently-crowned champions Juventus to contend with next weekend, I Giallorossi will already have one eye on their Europa League campaign as they look to claim a piece of silverware and a route into the Champions League for next season.Roma will lock horns with Sevilla in the last 16 of the competition, and should the Italian outfit keep their strong run of form going into August, the Giallorossi faithful ought to feel optimistic about their side's chances of making the quarter finals.
