Serie A Preview | Torino vs. Udinese: Granata challenge Gotti

by | Nov 21, 2021 21:05

Torino injuries continue to pile up for Ivan Juric, while Luca Gotti’s Udinese hope to find some consistency after finally ending their negative streak.

The Granata are putting together a series of home wins, only to suffer slender defeats away, so are aiming to keep that trend going on Monday evening.

Ricardo Rodriguez and Dennis Praet picked up new injuries on international duty, with Koffi Djidji and Simone Verdi already on the treatment table. At least Josip Brekalo returns, while Rolando Mandragora and Cristian Ansaldi should be fit for the bench after their lay-offs.

Udinese ended their dismal run of results with a 3-2 win over Sassuolo just before the break for international duty. Jean-Victor Makengo sits out a ban, so Tolgay Arslan is expected to start in midfield. Gerard Deulofeu and Roberto Pereyra should be feeding the supply line to on-form striker Beto.
