Fiorentina travel to Torino looking to get a big win at a difficult away ground. Giampiero Ventura's granata have also had difficulty finding the back of the net, but finally found a break through in a decisive win in midweek.

Micah Richards makes his debut for a Fiorentina side suffering from a plague of injuries. Not only does Mario Gomez remain out, but Juan Cuadrado and Joaquin both sustained minor injuries in midweek. With so many attackers absent, Vincenzo Montella has reverted to the Christmas tree formation, with Matias Fernandez and Josip Ilicic operating behind Khouma Babacar. David Pizarro and Alberto Aquilani are more likely just being rested, while expect to see Federico Bernardeschi off the bench again at some point.

Lineups:

Torino (3-5-1-1): Gillet; Maksimovic, Glik, Moretti; Peres, Gazzi, Vivez, Sanche Mino, Darmian; El Kaddouri; Quagliarrella

FIORENTINA (4-3-2-1): Neto; Richards, Gonzalo, Savic, Pasqual; Kurtic, Badelj, Borja Valero; Ilicic, Mati; Babacar
