Torino V Genoa Preview

Torino's quest for a place in next season's Europa League will continue when they face Genoa at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday afternoon.

This fixture will evoke memories of last season's 'biscotti' as both sides played out a drab goalless draw in order to maintain their Serie A status. However, the fortunes for both sides have improved this campaign with Toro dreaming of Europe, and Genoa safe in mid-table.

The Granata will be without the reliable Matteo Darmian who is suspended, so young left back Antonio Barreca is included in the squad but is unlikely to start. With Alexander Farnerud and Jasmin Kurtic both out injured, Toro's midfield options look limited - but Giuseppe Vives should return to the starting eleven.

Genoa have been in poor form having lost their last two games, but having gained 14 points on the road this season 'Il Grifone' should not be underestimated.

Prediction
Torino 2-1 Genoa
