Udinese V Torino Preview
Captain Rolando Bianchi is injured, so for the fourth game in succession Paulo Barreto and Riccardo Meggiorini are expected to lead the line upfront. Brazilian striker Barreto will have added motivation to score his first game for the club on Sunday, as he is a former Udinese player - although rarely got a regular run in the team. Angelo Ogbonna returns to the squad for the first time since being injured in October, but Guillermo Rodriguez - who has impressed in the absence of the Italian international is still expected to keep his place.
Like Torino, Udinese have only suffered defeat on six occasions this season, but like the Granata have drawn more games than they have won. Despite being defeated by Mario Balotelli (sorry AC Milan) in controversial circumstances last Sunday, the Zebrette have been in great form at home in recent weeks - winning their last three matches against Inter, Fiorentina and Siena.
