Torino V Lecce Preview

Torino will play their first competitive fixture of the 2012-13 season as they face Lecce in the Coppa Italia this evening.

This game will give a number of summer acquisitions an opportunity to make their Torino debuts, and players such as Matteo Brighi, Alessandro Gazzi, Mario Santana and Gianluca Sansone are expected to feature. After impressing in pre-season, strikers Rolando Bianchi and Riccardo Meggiorini should start the game, and it will give both players an opportunity to impress ahead of Torino's first league game against Siena next Sunday.

Opponents Lecce have had a hectic start to the season, after being relegated to the Lega Pro Prima Divisione as punishment for their role in the Italian match-fixing scandal of last season. Therefore, this cup game should provide a welcome distraction for a side that has dropped down two divisions in just twelve months.

Prediction
Torino 2-0 Lecce
