Torino v HJK Helsinki Preview

Torino can take a step closer to qualifying for the last 32 of the Europa League when they face HJK Helsinki on Thursday evening.

The Granata won their last game in Europe in dramatic fashion, as Fabio Quagliarella's injury time penalty gave them a deserved victory against Copenhagen.

Daniele Padelli, Nikola Maksimovic and Josef Martinez are all expected to start for as Giampiero Ventura rotates his squad.

HJK have already won their domestic league, but come into this game having lost their opening two Europa League fixtures without scoring. However, Gambian international Demba Savage could cause Toro problems, as the winger has scored eleven league goals this season.
