Torino V Napoli Preview

After being out of action for two weeks due to the international break, Torino will look for back-to-back home victories against Napoli on Saturday evening.

The Granata's victory at a snowy Stadio Olimpico a fortnight ago eased fears of them being dragged back into a relegation battle, and Jonathas, the goalscorer from the match could be rewarded with his first start for the club. Angelo Ogbonna is included in the squad after recovering from the injury he suffered against Parma, whilst Abou Diop is also available for selection after sitting out the last three matches due to his red card against Cagliari.

Despite being Juventus' main scudetto rivals for much of the season, Napoli have been in poor form recently - and have only won one of their last six matches. Walter Mazzarri could be also without top scorer and talisman Edinson Cavani, after the Uruguayan's flight back to Italy was delayed following international duty.

Prediction
Torino 2-1 Napoli
