Torino coach Siniša Mihajlović may need to beat Cagliari at the Stadio Grande Torino on Sunday evening in order to save his job.
The Serbian is under pressure at the Granata after a run of five matches which has only returned two points and included a heavy derby defeat.
Antonio Barreca and Tomas Rincon are both suspended so Cristian Molinaro and Afriyie Acquah could deputise, whilst M'Baye Niang could be deployed as a central striker in place or the frustrating Umar Sadiq.
Cagliari have lost five of their last six matches, but picked up an important victory in midweek to deny Benevento their first ever Serie A point, thanks to an injury time winner.
