Stadium: Stadio Olimpico, Torino (Italy)
As the season is coming to the end, only 10 rounds left, Livorno seem to be more hungry than Torino. The Piedmontese team have now 36 points, only a few points more and Ventura can be sure of keeping his team in the main league.
The team from Tuscany on the other side will have to fight until the last round probably. In their last game they have defeated Bologna 2-1 at home and, even without Emeghara, striker Paulinho keeps giving his important support to the team: 27 appearances and 11 goals until now.
28 appearances and 11 goals also for Cerci who will probably miss this match. He is doubt because of knee pains and without him Torino would play probably with Meggiorini upfront together with Immobile. Meggiorini is a good player but he is not as good as Cerci.
Livorno will also miss also Luci and Mbaye. The Senegalese has shown good quality in the last rounds but he has been shown a red card with Bologna and he will be suspended.
After four defeats in a row Torino need to start collecting the last important points. Even one point can help as they lost also the last three home games: 1-2 to Bologna, 0-2 to Sampdoria and 0-1 with Napoli.
In their last two away games Livorno have defeated Cagliari 2-1 in Sardinia and they lost 2-4 with Sampdoria after leading 2-0.
Torino (probable line-up): Padelli, Maksimovic, Glik, Moretti, Darmian, Kurtic, Vives, El Kaddouri, Vesovic, Meggiorini, Immobile. Trainer: Ventura
Livorno (probable line-up): Bardi, Valentini, Ceccherini, Emerson, Castellini, Benassi, Biagianti, Greco, Mesbah, Belfodil, Paulinho. Trainer: Di Carlo
Not available players: S. Masiello, Pasquale, Larrondo (Torino), Emeghara, Mbaye, Luci (Livorno)
Doubt: Cerci (Torino)
I bet on Livorno with the help of the Asian Handicap +1 as I think that a draw is a good option for both teams while a win for Livorno is possible. I would be surprised if Torino play with the same motivation as Livorno.
My correct score: 1-1 Paulinho, Immobile
