THE TEAM NEWS

TORINO

  • Torino were unable to build on their 3-0 success against Genoa as they slipped to defeat against Fiorentina at the weekend but with other results going their way, they are on the verge of securing their Serie A status.
  • Torino got off to the worst possible start as Lyanco put through his own net in just the second minute and despite responding fairly well to that setback, they were unable to get themselves back on level terms.
  • Fiorentina sealed Torino’s fate with a second goal with 15 minutes remaining and they must now do without the suspended Sasa Lukic while Armando Izzo is also set to remain on the sidelines with a knee injury.

HELLAS VERONA

  • Hellas Verona failed to win for the fifth game in a row but they will be content with their efforts in their most recent outing as they were able to hold in-form Atalanta to a draw in their clash at the weekend.
  • Atalanta took the lead five minutes into the second half but Verona responded well as Matteo Pessina was able to level nine minutes later and despite facing intense pressure from that point, they were able to grind out a valiant point.
  • They will hope to build on that display to end their winless run but they will be without Sofyan Amrabat who is out because of suspension while Pawl Dawidowicz, Salvatore Bocchetti and Giampaolo Pazzini remain injury doubts.

THE PREDICTION

Torino are still not completely safe from relegation trouble and they will want to secure their place in next season’s Serie A as quickly as possible. It is unlikely they will be relegated but they will want to avoid any unnecessary late drama in the closing stages of the campaign. They have won their last two home matches and will hope to make it three in a row as they host a Hellas Verona side without a win in their last five games. The visitors did earn an eye-catching point against Atalanta at the weekend and they will hope to take some confident from that but with both teams struggling defensively, this should be an open game with both teams likely to find the back of the net.
