Fiorentina v Torino Preview

Torino will look to extend their unbeaten run when they travel to Florence to face in-form Fiorentina on Thursday evening.

The Granata are without the suspended Cesare Bovo and Omar El Kaddouri, so Nikola Maksimovic and Alexander Farnerud should both come into the side - whilst Maxi Lopez could continue upfront after his brace against Athletic Bilbao in midweek.

The home side are also on a long unbeaten run, and have only lost one match in 2015, a surprising 1-0 defeat to Parma back in January.

This fixture was a dramatic one last season, as on the final day of the season, Alessio Cerci missed a last minute penalty that would have guaranteed European football for Toro. As it turned out, Torino qualified for Europe anyway due to Parma's financial difficulties - which are unfortunately still continuing.

Fiorentina 3-2 Torino
