Torino V Reggina Preview

Torino will have the opportunity to gain a victory over a playoff rival, and extend their winning run to four games when they face Reggina on Monday evening.

Whilst Torino come into the game filled with optimism thanks to their recent results, the opposite can be said for Reggina, who are without a victory in their last six games, and suffered a shock home defeat to Cittadella in their last outing. That being said, Torino may be without a number of key players as both Dejan Lazarevic and Angelo Ogbonna picked up slight injuries in the match with Albinoleffe so may miss out. However, captain Rolando Bianchi, who did not feature last Saturday due to injury should return to lead the side out.

I will be in attendance at the Stadio Olimpico for the match, so will include photographs and a detailed match report in my next update.

Forza Torino


  1. Just tuning in to my2p to watch the game. Must say im extremely jealous of you right now. hope you enjoy the game and i look forward to seeing the photographs.


  2. Had a great time at the match, sadly couldn't get the win, but scoring an equaliser when I was resigned to losing was nearly as good. Will upload some photographs tomorrow.

    P.S Remember you asking about books about Torino - this book is on the more general topic of Italian football, but it has an excellent chapter on Torino, and is well worth a read.

  3. Hi again. Glad you enjoyed the match and that bianchi popped up with a late equaliser to keep up the recent unbeaten streak. The team seem to be playing with a lot of spirit at the moment and hopefully this will help them into a playoff position come the end of the season. With regards to your book recommendation a friend at work has just purchased this book and will be lending it to me shortly. I have just finished reading a fantastic italian football book called the miracle of castel di sangro. I cannot recommend this book highly enough and hope you get the chance to read it.

    I look forward to reading the preview of the modena match shortly :-)

  4. I am certainly more confident than I was earlier in the season of getting a playoff position - and then who knows what can happen, the experience of last season's playoffs could give us an advantage, although only a handful of players from then are still at the club.

    I had brought a copy of the Miracle of Castel Di Sangro and started to read it, but to be honest couldn't get into it, - though may give it another go.
