Sassuolo V Torino Preview

Torino will be looking for their first victory of 2014 as they travel to face a Sassuolo side who will be buoyed after beating AC Milan last weekend.

Sassuolo striker Domenico Berardi hit the headlines for scoring all four of his sides goals in that 4-3 victory, and he will likely start in a front three once again. However, the home side will be without fellow striker Simone Zaza who is suspended.

The Granata welcome back Giuseppe Vives, Omar El Kaddouri and Ciro Immobile to the squad, as all three missed the draw with Fiorentina for differing reasons. Panagiotis Tachtsidis could make his debut for Toro after failing to come off the bench against the Viola.

Torino won the reverse fixture 2-0 on the opening day of the season, thanks to goals from Matteo Brighi and Alessio Cerci, but as the victory against Milan illustrated, the neroverdi have certainly improved since then.

Sassuolo 1-2 Torino
