Serie A Preview: Inter Milan -Torino


Sunday's visitors have not lost in the league in five games but Andrea Stramaccioni's men will be eager to put that run to an end as they try to gain ground in Serie A.

Inter will be without defender Walter Samuel, but striker Antonio Cassano could return up front to partner Rodrigo Palacio for the visit of 11th-placed Torino.

Philippe Coutinho, who is rumored to be on the verge of a move away from San Siro, will not feature, along with Diego Milito and Dejan Stankovic, but Ricky Alvarez is named in the squad.

Torino boss Giampiero Ventura meanwhile is only missing defender Angelo Ogbonna, with Kamil Glik and Guillermo Rodriguez slotting in at center back and Rolando Bianchi back up front.

Alessio Cerci suffered a minor injury this past week, but he looks set to feature on the wing.

  • Inter has won eight out of the last nine games against Torino in all competitions.
  • Andrea Stramaccioni's side has conceded more goals at home than any other side in the top six in Serie A.
  • The Nerazzurri have picked up just five points from their last five league games.
  • Torino has not lost since Dec. 9, when it went down 4-2 against AC Milan.
  • Since then, Torino has picked up 11 points from a possible 15 to move into 11th spot in Serie A.
  • Giampiero Ventura (pictured, right) has seen his side lose away from home on just two occasions in Serie A this season - with Torino drawing seven and winning the other two on the road.
