Ventura has Atalanta warning

Giampiero Ventura urges Torino to stay focused and get the points they need for safety against Atalanta today. Click here for a match preview.

The Granata already won 5-1 in Bergamo earlier this season, although the Coach warns “that was an anomalous afternoon. We’re facing a strong and organised side that has further reinforced during the January transfer window.

“Our position in the table allows us to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We want another 12 points for safety and will fight to get them.”

Rolando Bianchi and Angelo Ogbonna could make their returns after injury problems, but Mario Alberto Santana is sidelined.

“It’s true that in the last two games we have failed to score, but we’ve got to take into consideration that only the crossbar stopped us beating Sampdoria and there were refereeing errors against Udinese.

“It is more important to look at the quality of football and chances created rather than the goals scored.”

Torino squad for Atalanta: Bakic, Barreto, Basha, Bianchi, Birsa, Brighi, Caceres, Cerci, Coppola, Darmian, Di Cesare, Diop, Gazzi, Gillet, Glik, Jonathas, Masiello, Meggiorini, Menga, Ogbonna, Rodriguez, Stevanovic, Vives
