Torino V Atalanta Preview

Torino will look to continue their excellent home form when they face Atalanta at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday afternoon.

Marcelo Larrondo was rumoured to be included in the squad for this match after being out injured for over four months, but unfortunately he has not been able to recover in time. However, Alexander Farnerud who was substituted against Sassuolo with a head injury is fit enough to be considered for selection.

Atalanta are also in good form and have won their last two games, both at home against Catania and Cagliari. However, it is their away form that has been their problem all season and the Bergamo side have only won once on the road all season.

Last season, Torino won this fixture in the dying moments as Valter Birsa's late goal gave the Granata a deserved 2-1 victory, with a certain Torino fan *cough cough* in attendance to witness it.

Prediction
Torino 2-1 Atalanta
