Torino v Zenit St Petersburg Preview

Torino will need to overcome a 2-0 first leg deficit in order to prolong their European adventure when they face Zenit St Petersburg on Thursday evening.

Marco Benassi's first half red card made things difficult for the Granata in Russia, so he misses out due to suspension, whilst Giuseppe Vives is out injured. Giampiero Ventura will once again have to choose between Josef Martinez and Maxi Lopez to partner Fabio Quagliarella up front.

The bookmakers certainly believe it may be against Toro to progress to the quarter finals, with the Italian side 7-1 underdogs to make it through. However, the Granata have already upset the odds by eliminating Athletic Bilbao in the previous round, and it would be foolish to bet against them again.

Forza Toro!
