Hellas Verona V Torino Preview

Torino will be looking to bounce back after their disappointing defeat against Bologna as they face fellow surprise package Hellas Verona on Monday evening.

The Granata may have one eye on the derby with Juventus a week today, but will know that a victory would put them level on points with both Hellas and Parma in the battle for a place in the Europa League. Panagiotis Tachtsidis has only made one brief substitute appearance since signing in January, and he will be looking for more minutes against his former club.

Newly promoted Hellas have shocked many on their return to the top flight, as the combination of Luca Toni's goals and their formidable home form has seen them become serious challengers for Europan football. However, on their last visit to the Stadio Bentegodi, Torino won the game 3-1 with Giulio Ebagua's excellent goal the highlight.

Prediction
Hellas Verona 1-1 Torino
