Torino V Palermo Preview

After last weekend's dramatic ending against Cagliari, Torino will be hoping for a less eventful ninety minutes against bottom-of-the table Palermo on Sunday afternoon.

The Granata will be without Abou Diop and Angelo Ogbonna who are both suspended after being dismissed last Sunday, and the latter will almost certainly be replaced by the reliable Guillermo Rodriguez. Matteo Brighi and Danilo D'Ambrosio will also be looking for a recall to the starting eleven after missing out against Cagliari.

After drawing against Genoa last weekend, Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has made his fourth managerial change of the season in an attempt to avoid an almost unthinkable relegation to Serie B. Despite initially being sacked in favour of Alberto Malesani, Gian Piero Gasperini has returned for his second spell in charge of the Rosanero, and he will be looking to secure Palermo's first victory since November against Toro on Sunday.

Prediction
Torino 1-1 Palermo
