Match Preview : Torino vs Genoa

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

Torino clearly did not approach the game at Napoli in the best way, but then tried to come back and their reaction was enough to avoid humiliation.

Genoa suffered a surprise upset against Palermo in the final few minutes of the match and Ivan Juric will now have to act quickly to ensure his players forget about that result.

The Granata will have to use that second half against Napoli as a way to forget they are actually on a three-game losing streak. Genoa might feel some tiredness since they also played 62 minutes against Fiorentina in their re-arranged fixture last week.

Team News

Torino – After applying a little rotation against Napoli, Sinisa Mihajlovic should go back to his favourite XI.


Match Preview : Sampdoria vs Udinese

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

Sampdoria are on a two-game losing streak which has put an end to a good streak they had that allowed them to enter the top half of the table. They will be content with how things have gone in the first half of the season but may want to achieve more in the remainder of the season.

Udinese are just two points ahead but they have won three consecutive games. They more or less have the same targets as their rivals, so this is one of those games that can shape the middle of the table.

Expect a balanced match, possibly with some tactical changes in order to experiment for the second half of the season. Playing at home could help Sampdoria find their best form back and stop Udinese’s run.

Team News

Sampdoria – Patrik Schick keeps scoring and should be rewarded with a starting spot alongside Luis Muriel.

Fabio Quagliarella will be the one making room for the young Czech forward.

Udinese – Danilo will be back available after serving his one-game suspension, so no doubt he will play here.

Emmanuel Badu seems to have lost the starting spot he had at the beginning of the season, but he might start in order to help with the rotation.
