Team News: Torino
Armando Izzo (Knee Problems) and Daniele Baselli (Ruptured cruciate ligament) are not available for Torino gaffer Moreno Longo. Tomás Rincón will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
It seems likely that Il Toro should use the 3-4-3 system in the match, handing starts to Salvatore Sirigu, Armando Izzo, Bremer, Nicolas N'Koulou, Cristian Daniel Ansaldi, Sasa Lukic, Souahilo Meite, Alejandro Berenguer Remiro, Andrea Belotti, Simone Verdi and Simone Zaza.
Team News: Roma
Due to a mostly available group, there’s just the one fitness problem for the Roma boss Paulo Fonseca to be concerned with. Lorenzo Pellegrini (Nose Injury) won’t be playing here.
We reckon that i Giallorossi seem likely to utilise a 3-4-2-1 lineup using Pau López Sabata, Chris Smalling, Aleksandar Kolarov, Gianluca Mancini, Bruno Peres, Amadou Diawara, Jordan Veretout, Leonardo Spinazzola, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Nicolò Zaniolo and Edin Dzeko.
We feel that Torino are certainly able to breach the defence of this Roma team, however a single goal is unlikely to be enough.
We can see a close game with a 1-2 winning margin for Roma at full-time. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
