Paulo Sousa only tinkers with the intriguing back line and team shape that was so successful against AC Milan, as the defense remains unchanged, including starts for Marcos Alonso and Gilberto in wide areas.

The only changes are Federico Bernardeschi dropping in favor of Matias Fernandez, and Mario Suarez getting a debut start over Milan Badelj. The switches likely indicate a midfield three in an effort to be slightly more solid on the road against a very capable Torino. More on the home granata and viewing options for the game can be read in our match preview.

Giampiero Ventura opts for Giuseppe Vives instead of Alessandro Gazzi in midfield, and Venezuelan Josef Martinez over veteran Maxi Lopez.


Torino (3-5-2): Padelli; Maksimovic, Glik, Moretti; Bruno Peres, Baselli, Vives, Benassi, Avelar; Martinez, Quagliarella

FIORENTINA (3-5-1-1): Tatarusanu; Tomovic, Gonzalo Rodriguez, Roncaglia; Gilberto, Mati, M. Suarez, Borja Valero, Alonso; Ilicic; Kalinic
