Team News: Torino
Simone Verdi (Hamstring Injury) and Daniele Baselli (Ruptured cruciate ligament) will not be able to play for Torino manager Moreno Longo.
We think that Il Toro may well kick off with a 3-4-3 system for this one featuring Salvatore Sirigu, Armando Izzo, Bremer, Nicolas N'Koulou, Ola Aina, Tomas Rincon, Souahilo Meite, Lorenzo De Silvestri, Alejandro Berenguer Remiro, Andrea Belotti and Simone Edera.
Team News: Lazio
Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi has some current player fitness concerns. Senad Lulic (Ankle Surgery), Bobby Adekanye (Muscular problems), Danilo Cataldi (Ankle Injury), Lucas Leiva (Knee Problems), Luiz Felipe (Calf Injury) and Adam Marusic (Muscular problems) can’t be considered.
We believe i Biancocelesti could decide to elect for a 3-5-2 system by sending out Thomas Strakosha, Patric, Francesco Acerbi, Bastos, Manuel Lazzari, Luis Alberto, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Marco Parolo, Jony, Felipe Caicedo and Ciro Immobile.
For this match, we think that Torino have it in them to score against this Lazio lineup, although one goal possibly won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end. We’re therefore expecting a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 winning margin for Lazio when the full-time whistle blows. Expecting it to be very competitive.
