Torino V Roma Preview

After Rolando Bianchi's dramatic last second equaliser against Bologna last weekend, Torino will be hoping to carry that momentum over to Sunday's match against Roma.

Migjen Basha is suspended, so there will have to be at least one change from the Bologna match, and Giuseppe Vives is likely to be the player to replace the Albanian international. Rolando Bianchi will hope that his aforementioned goal will be enough to earn himself a promotion to the starting eleven, but Jonathas or Riccardo Meggiorini could be selected ahead of the captain to partner the in-form Paulo Barreto.

Daniele De Rossi limped out of the Rome derby on Monday night, but the tenacious midfielder has been included in the squad. The giallorossi still have aspirations of qualifying for the Europa League next season, however if that is to happen, they will have to perform better than they did in their last away match when they lost 2-0 at struggling Palermo.

Prediction
Torino 2-2 Roma
