Torino v Lazio Preview

Torino face Lazio in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia this evening, with Granata fans dreaming of seeing their team lift the trophy for the first time since 1993.

New signing Maxi Lopez has been included in the squad, although Fabio Quagliarella misses out due to injury. After impressing in Saturday's draw with AC Milan, Bruno Peres and Alexander Farnerud should keep their places in the starting eleven.

Lazio have been in fine league form recently, as illustrated by Sunday's 2-2 with Roma - a game in which they were 2-0 up at half time before being pegged back by Francesco Totti's heroics. Brazilian midfielder Felipe Anderson has been in scintillating form as of late, having been involved in each of Lazio's last seven goals (four scored, three assisted).

Prediction
Torino 1-1 Lazio (Lazio to win on penalties)
