Torino will be looking to bounce back after their impressive Europa League run came to an end on Thursday night at the hands of Zenit St Petersburg. With Toro narrowly missing out 2-1 on aggregate.
As for Parma they are merely playing for pride and for their fans now, while the courts were declaring Parma bankrupt on Thursday, Roberto Donadoni put his side through their paces as they beat local side Fidenza 6-0 at Collecchio.
After last week’s 4-1 defeat at local rivals Sassuolo, Parma will have to make do without Antonio Mirante, who saw red at the Mapei Stadium, veteran Massimo Gobbi and Jose Mauri will also miss out due to suspension.
Torino come into this game on the back of two narrow defeats in the last two rounds and will be hoping to get back to winning ways on Sunday afternoon. Parma were haunted by old boy Nicola Sansone last week and they will have to be on the lookout for another this week in the form of Amauri as he looks heap more misery on his former employers.
These two were batteling it out for a Europa League spot last year and a win for Torino could see them jump above Genoa and Inter into seventh place, as for Parma last year’s Europa League dream is all but a distant memory now as they side rock bottom of Serie A.
The last time these sides met back in October, Torino came out on top thanks to an early Matteo Darmian strike securing a narrow 1-0 victory.
