Latest performances in all competitions
Torino will look to continue their remarkable run in the Serie A when they host Napoli this Saturday.
The hosts are one of the most in-form teams in the Italian Serie A as they come into this tie without a loss in their last six games. Their last outing was a 3-1 win over Empoli, with Andrea Belotti’s late hat-trick beyond the 75th minute, ensuring that they took home all three points to take their points tally for the season to 47 points.
By this time last season, they were still in a relegation battle and ended the season in 17th place, narrowly escaping relegation. But ahead of this round of games, Ivan Jurić’s side are sitting in tenth place.
With just three games left to play in the league, they are in a pole position for a top-ten finish and will be desperate to get a good result against Napoli considering that they have lost five of their last six head-to-head meetings at home.
Possible Torino starting line-up
Etrit Berisha; Armando Izzo, Bremer, Buongiornio; W. Stephane Singo, Samuele Ricci, Rolando Madndragora, Mergim Vojvoda; Dennis Praet, Josip Brekalo; Pietro Pellegri.
Injured: Antonio Sanabria, Simone Zaza, Mohamed Fares
Doubtful: Magnus Warming
Suspended: Sasa Lukic
After throwing away their chance of winning the title with a series of poor results last month, Napoli came back to winning ways last time out as they beat Sassuolo 6-1.
The win ended a run of three games without a win for Luciano Spalletti’s side and also ensured that they qualified for the UEFA Champions League for the first time since the 2018/19n season.
And so, with UCL football in the bag, they will now focus their attention on finishing as high up the table as is possible.
Considering that they have taken more points away from home this season than at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, they will fancy their chances in this game. Meanwhile, they have already matched their highest away league point tally from the previous three campaigns with two matches to go.
Possible Napoli starting line-up
David Ospina, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Amir Rrahmani, Kalidou Koulibaly, Mario Rui, Andre Zambo Anguissa, Fabian Ruiz; Hirving Lozano, Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne; Victor Osimhen.
Torino 1-2 Napoli
