Cittadella V Torino Preview

Torino will look to win their first away game since 1st November when they travel to Cittadella on Saturday afternoon.

Toro started the season in record-breaking form away from home, as they won their first five games away from the Olimpico, but recently they have struggled on the road, and will be keen to rectify that problem as quickly as possible.

New signing Riccardo Meggiorini should make his debut against his former team, whilst Manuel Iori, who made over 100 appearances for Cittadella is also available for selection after suspension. Rolando Bianchi should start despite injuring his hand in the week, and should have regained some confidence after scoring a hat-trick against Rivoli in a friendly on Wednesday.

Toro's opponents Cittadella have had an average season so far and are currently in 11th position, but only three points outside the playoff positions. Cittadella's home form is particularly impressive, as they have won six of their eleven games at home, including the last two. Striker Robert Maah, who was particularly impressive in the reverse fixture at the Olimpico in August is their top scorer this season with seven goals.

Forza Torino
