Torino V Cittadella Preview

After the disappointing defeat away to Varese, Torino must pick themselves up for their first home game of 2011, against lowly Cittadella. Although it is perhaps to soon to describe this game as 'must win', three points would be extremely welcome for Torino, who find themselves out of the playoff positions, after Reggina's draw on Monday.

The Torino hierarchy have perhaps sensed how important a game this is, and have introduced an initiative that allows women to purchase a ticket for just two euros, and under 16's can buy a ticket for just one euro. With teams throughout Italy struggling to fill their stadiums, Torino should certainly be praised for these reduced ticket prices, and it will hopefully increase the atmosphere at the stadium, and encourage the team to a much needed victory.

Cittadella have not enjoyed the same success this campaign as they did last season, and currently occupy 16th position, and find themselves in a relegation battle, meaning they will be just as desperate for the points.
