Tied 1-1 at home this season, hopefully we can get a result here. Difficult thought because Novellino gets a touchline ban yet again (for two rounds) after arguing in the Palermo match. I'm really getting sick of that.

Rubin and Dellafiore are injured, Diana and Comotto are suspended.

Di Michele-Stellone
Rosina-Grella-Corini-Lazetic
Pisano-Natali-Di Loreto-Motta
Sereni

On the bench: Fontana, Lanna, Zanetti, Bottone, Barone, Recoba, Bjelanovic

FORZA VECCHIO CUORE GRANATA!

NWO BABY

Serie A Week 23 - 17/2/08 (14.00 UK)
Siena - Torino

Stadio Franchi

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Serie A draw specialists Torino will look to keep a rare winning streak going when they travel to Tuscany for a tricky encounter with Siena. Just four points separate the sides at present, but a victory for the home side will cut the gap to one and drag the Turin outfit right back into the relegation mire.

Incredibly, only the top five have lost less League games than Torino this season, but the Granata’s tendency to draw games – their tally currently stands at 12 from just 22 matches – means that they have been unable to mount the UEFA Cup bid which the fans had hoped for. Nonetheless, Coach Walter Novellino will argue that it’s better to finish all-square than to lose.

However, the former Samp boss will probably be regretting his decision to argue with the referee during the Week 22 clash with Palermo, as he was sent to the stands and has been handed a two-match touchline ban. He’s not the only bad boy at Toro though, as Gianluca Comotto and Aimo Diana are also suspended. Marco Motta and David Di Michele are the men to benefit, with Alessandro Rosina dropping into midfield in order to make space for the latter up front. Cesare Natali and Eugenio Corini are also tipped to return to the side in place of Salvatore Lanna and Simone Barone.

Siena aren’t expected to make as many adjustments, and who can blame Mario Beretta? His boys thumped Roma in Week 21 and were desperately unlucky not to take anything away from their game at Milan last time out. So the tactician is likely to make just the one change to his starting line-up, as Simone Vergassola is banned after receiving a harsh red card for a handling offence against the Rossoneri. Manuel Coppola, who joined from Genoa in January, is tipped to make his second appearance for the Bianconeri.

Previous meetings between the sides since Torino’s return to Serie A in 2006 have typically been low-scoring affairs. Both matches last term went Siena’s way, with Mario Frick’s double securing a victory in Turin and Luca Antonini’s lone goal proving to be enough in Tuscany. Honours were even in the only other top-flight clash between the sides, which took place earlier this season.

Keep an eye on: David Di Michele (Torino) – Came off the bench to defeat his former club Palermo last time out. Can he push on and show the form that we all know he is capable of?

Last season: Siena 1-0 Torino

Form guide: Siena (L W L W L) Torino (L L D W W)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Siena (probable): Manninger; Rossettini, Portanova, Loria, De Ceglie; Jarolim, Codrea, Coppola; Locatelli; Maccarone, Frick

Torino (probable): Sereni; Motta, Di Loreto, Natali, Pisano; Lazetic, Grella, Corini, Rosina; Stellone, Di Michele

Zanetti : I still remember my first day at Inter. I arrived with a plastic bag with my boots inside and I crossed the crowd of fans who were asking who I was. That's where it all started.....

Find your legs. Find your heart.

Forza Toro.
