Torino V Siena Preview
However, the Toro squad is somewhat depleted, as five members of the first team are suspended - including key defenders Matteo Darmian and Kamil Glik. With Angelo Ogbonna also out through injury, the Granata defence looks particularly vulnerable, and forgotten man Pablo Caceres may even make his first start for the club at left back.
Siena are currently bottom of the league, but had they not been deducted six points at the start of the season - they would have been out of the relegation zone, and that therefore makes the recent sacking of coach Serse Cosmi seem somewhat harsh. The Tuscan side have had a similar problem to Torino, in that their main striker - Emanuele Calaiò (who has now left to sign for Napoli) - has scored the majority of their goals (four), and that no other player has scored more than twice. This is also the case with Toro, although their main striker - Rolando Bianchi has scored six times this season.
