KICK off: 29 January 21:45
Information: Taking charge of his first home fixture as head coach of his boyhood club, Davide Nicola will continue with Torino’s familiar 3-5-2 setup. Brazilian defender Bremer could be drafted back into the XI after missing out last week, as Armando Izzo came off with a head injury against Benevento. Mergim Vojvoda has missed the last two games with a shoulder injury and remains unavailable, as does Nicolas N’Koulou.
Wing-backs Wilfried Singo and Cristian Ansaldi are favoured to feature on the flanks, but Nicola Murru is also in contention to start, while Simone Zaza should partner Andrea Belotti up front. Expected to employ a similar tactical setup, Fiorentina manager Cesare Prandelli has a healthy squad to choose from, but is not expected to involve new signings Aleksandr Kokorin and Kevin Malcuit from the start. A goalscorer last week, Giacomo Bonaventura could continue alongside Sofyan Amrabat and Gaetano Castrovilli in the midfield three, with Franck Ribery once more playing off central striker Dusan Vlahovic in attack.
Torino possible starting lineup: Sirigu; Lyanco, Bremer, Rodriguez; Singo, Lukic, Rincon, Linetty, Ansaldi; Zaza, Belotti
Fiorentina possible starting lineup: Dragowski; Milenkovic, Pezzella, Igor; Caceres, Bonaventura, Amrabat, Castrovilli, Biraghi; Ribery, Vlahovic
Prediction: Under 2,5 goals
