Brescia V Torino Preview
Torino will travel to Brescia on Sunday afternoon looking for their fourth consecutive victory, after beating Vicenza, Nocerina and Sampdoria in recent weeks.
This match was originally scheduled to be played at the start of the month, but was postponed due to poor weather. Although Toro have been impressive of late, some fans may be concerned that they have not won away from home since beating Reggina in November, and will be looking to rectify that statistic.
There are injury doubts regarding winger Alen Stevanovic who limped off against Sampdoria, and that could mean that Cristian Pasquato is included in the eighteen for the first time. Riccardo Meggiorini could also come into the team following his winning goal against Sampdoria at the expense of Rolando Bianchi, who despite impressive performances, can not end his goal drought.
Brescia have recovered after a poor start to the season and are currently in eighth place and are looking towards gaining a playoff position. They are unbeaten in their last eight matches, winning six of them -although they have not managed to score in their last two home games.
