Serie A Preview | Roma vs. Torino: Another shake-up for Mourinho

by | Nov 27, 2021 22:55

Jose Mourinho is forced to reshuffle his Roma pack yet again, this time due to a lack of midfielders, while Torino try to improve their away record.

The Giallorossi seem to go into every game at the moment with a myriad of new problems. Bryan Cristante and Gonzalo Villar are still positive for COVID-19, with Riccardo Calafiori and Leonardo Spinazzola injured. Now Jordan Veretout is suspended, leaving few options in midfield, so Lorenzo Pellegrini could drop back.

Toro really are a different prospect on home turf, managing three consecutive victories at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, along with three away defeats in a row. Andrea Belotti is trying to rediscover his form after that ankle injury and contract dispute.
