Torino V Reggina Preview

Torino have yet to suffer successive defeats so far this season, so after being beaten in their last outing at Empoli, history suggests they should get a result at home to Reggina on Friday evening.

Manuel Iori is suspended so should be replaced by Giuseppe Vives, whilst Kamil Glik, Alen Stevanovic and Rolando Bianchi are also expected to start. Torino won the reverse fixture in November thanks to a late goal by Danilo D'Ambrosio, and he could come into the starting eleven if Giampiero Ventura wants a more attacking option at right back.

Reggina are currently in ninth place, five points away from the final playoff position so will be looking to win in order to keep their dreams of promotion alive. Torino's opponents have struggled on the road recently, losing their last 3 away matches, but the fact that their last away win was against promotion contenders Pescara shows that they are a good side.

Prediction
Torino 2-0 Reggina
