Catania v Torino Preview

After an enforced two weeks without a match because of the Italian winter break, Torino finally return to competitive action on Saturday evening against Catania.

The Granata have been in Sicily for the past week, for a warm weather ritiro in the small city of Ragusa, and that should mean that Toro are well acclimatised to face a team who are notoriously good at home. Giampiero Ventura shouldn't make too many changes to the side that beat Chievo just before Christmas, so Gianluca Sansone could be given another start up front.

Gli Elefanti are currently four places and six points ahead of Torino, and as mentioned earlier, traditionally tend to do much better at the Stadio Angelo Massimino than on mainland Italy. Catania have lost only two of their nine home games this season (with an impressive six victories), but did suffer a disappointing defeat away to Pescara in the last match before the winter break.

Prediction
Catania 2-1 Torino
