Fiorentina v Torino: Lineups and Match Thread

It’s squeaky bum time for Sousa...

Both Sousa and Mihajlović come into this game under pressure, with the game being touted as make or break for Sousa after the uttlery shambolic display which saw them booted out of the Europa League with their tails between their legs. Torino come into the match with a leaky defence to say the least, Hart and co. conceding 15 goals in their last 6 games; previous 2 matches being thrashings at the hands of Roma and Napoli.

Late News

Saponara finally gets his chance to shine in purple, giving his link up play with Kalinić something to keep an eye on.


Fiorentina line up in what will most likely be Sousa’s preferred 3-4-3 consisting of:

Tatarusanu; Sanchez, Rodriguez, Astori, Salcedo; Badelj, Borja Valero; Chiesa, Saponara, Ilicic; Kalinić.

Subs: Satalino, Sportiello, De Maio, Olivera, Tello, Cristoforo, Hagi, Maistro, Babacar, Milic, Tomovic

Torino start in their ever-present 4-3-3, with danger man Belotti spearheading the attack for Il Toro:

Hart; Zappacosta, Ajeti, Moretti, Barreca; Benassi, Lukic, Baselli; Falque, Belotti, Boyè

Subs: Padelli, Reinaudo, Molinaro, Acquah, Ljajic, Lopez, Rossettini, Gustafson, Valdifiori, Iturbe, Avelar, De Silvestri.
