Ventura: 'Toro can upset Napoli'

Giampiero Ventura has already been able to hold Inter and Milan, so warns “the result is not written” for Napoli-Torino.

The Granata visit the Stadio San Paolo in the brunchtime kick-off at 11.30am GMT, click here for a match preview.

“Unfortunately, the treatment room is packed at the moment,” said the Coach after calling up just 18 players for this trip.

“Napoli are a very tough opponent. It will be a different game from last season, as both sides have changed their style of play. They have the best attacking potential in Italy, so we will have to be very careful.”

Coming off an exhilarating 3-3 draw with Inter, Toro go into this game without Alexander Farnerud, Omar El Kaddouri, Matteo Brighi, Cesare Bovo, Marcelo Larrondo, Guillermo Rodriguez and the suspended Ciro Immobile.

“We had a great approach to the game with Inter despite already being in an emergency situation then, so I think it will be the same situation here,” continued Ventura.

“We are Toro and if we play with our style then we can cause problems for anyone. On paper the result may seem obvious, but it’s not written yet. I am certain we’ll have our say in Naples.”

Torino squad for Napoli: Berni, Gomis, Padelli; D’Ambrosio, Darmian, Glik, Maksimovic, Masiello, Moretti, Pasquale, Scaglia; Bellomo, Basha, Gazzi, Vives; Barreto, Cerci, Meggiorini
