Parma V Torino Preview

Torino travel to fellow mid-table side Parma on Sunday afternoon, and the Granata will be looking to record their first away win since January.

Toro will be without the suspended Riccardo Meggiorini and Alessio Cerci, with Alen Stevanovic and Mario Santana perhaps the most likely candidates to replace the former Fiorentina winger. Angelo Ogbonna has also returned to the squad after his own suspension, and should replace Guillermo Rodriguez at the heart of the defence, despite the Uruguayan's impressive recent performances.

Despite an impressive start to the season, Parma have struggled in recent weeks - and have gone eight games without a win, with their last victory coming in early January against Palermo. In October, the reverse fixture was won by the Crociati, with Gianluca Sansone's harsh red card for simulation being the turning point.
