Torino v Palermo Preview


Torino will try and move on from their derby disappointment when they face Palermo at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday evening.

The Granata have lost their last three Serie A fixtures, and have not won a game in any competition since the end of October.

On the flip side, opponents Palermo are in decent form and are unbeaten in their last five games - winning three of them.

Palermo have a number of familiar faces in their squad, and goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino made 106 appearances for the Granata and is likely to get a warm reception from the home fans.

One player who will not get a welcome reception is experienced midfielder Enzo Maresca who angered Toro supporters by mocking Marco Ferrante's bull celebration after scoring for Juventus against the Granata in 2002.

Prediction
Torino 1-0 Palermo
