Torino v Palermo Preview

Torino will be looking to complete their first league double of the season when they face Palermo at Stadio Grande Torino on Sunday afternoon.

Toro beat the Rosanero 4-1 in Sicily back in October, and a repeat of that scoreline would certainly lift the mood in the Granata camp after a disappointing few months. Captain Marco Benassi is suspended, so Samuel Gustafson or Afriyie Acquah should deputise, whilst fit again Luca Rossettini should replace error-prone Arlind Ajeti.

Palermo currently occupy the final relegation position and are seven points away from 17th placed Empoli. Whilst form has improved under coach Diego Lopez, they have lost three of their last four away games - although they did pick up a surprise point away to Napoli in January.

Prediction
Torino 3-1 Palermo
