Torino V Lazio Preview

Torino will be looking to continue their run of good form when they face Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday afternoon.

Toro defender Cesare Bovo who has impressed in recent weeks is out injured, so Torino will have to make at least one change to the team that came so close to beating Genoa last weekend. That change could mean yet another change in formation, although the return of Danilo D'Ambrosio could also see Matteo Darmian revert to becoming one the three centre backs in Bovo's absence.

Opponents Lazio have been in miserable form as of late, and have only won one of their last nine matches - and were most recently beaten 4-2 at home by Napoli on Monday. Lazio have their injury problems, and will be without the prolific Miroslav Klose for this fixture.

Last season, Torino won this game 1-0 thanks to a late goal from Jonathas in incredibly snowy conditions, which should hopefully not be repeated this time - although another Toro victory would certainly be most welcome.

Prediction
Torino 1-1 Lazio
