Torino V Albinoleffe Preview

Fresh from a training camp in Malta, Torino will play their first game of 2012 at home to Albinoleffe on Friday afternoon.

January 6th is a national holiday in Italy in order to celebrate The Epiphany, and Torino will be hoping they can commemorate this holiday with three points after succumbing to two successive defeats before the winter break.

Although the transfer window is now open, Torino have yet to make any new additions and are expected to line up in a 4-2-4 formation with Simone Verdi, Rolando Bianchi, Mirco Antenucci and Alen Stevanovic as the four attacking players.

Their opponents Albinoleffe are on a good run of form themselves, only losing one of their last eight games - and will therefore be hoping that the winter break has not disrupted their form. Andrea Cocco is one player that Torino will have to be wary of, as the striker has already scored nine goals this season.
