Serie A Matchday 1: Torino-Lecce

-

Torino - Lecce

Date/Time: Sunday 31 August, 15:00 CET (9:00 EDT)
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Torino



And so it begins! Will we be able to start our season out on the right foot against Lecce? In the last two years we have opened poorly in our first few games (though with draws in the first ones), so hopefully this will be a change of pace. We can look forward to this lineup next Sunday:

Bianchi
Amoruso-Rosina
Barone-Corini-Säumel
Pisano-Di Loreto-Natali-Diana
Sereni

I have questions about Amoruso being played in a withdrawn role next to Rosina, but that seems to be the general consensus on how he will fit into our attack with Bianchi and Rosina. Lecce could field this lineup:

Cacia-Tiribocchi
Ariatti-Giacomazzi-Zanchetta-Munari
Antunes-Diamoutene-Schiavi-Polenghi
Benussi

On paper Beretta's men seem considerably weaker than us at pretty much every position, though we will have to watch out for Cacia and Giacomazzi on the attack while Schiavi is a fairly good center-back. The veteran Argentine striker Castillo will also be a threat and ready to prove himself in Serie A after a very successful spell in the lower leagues.

Let's start the season off with a win! Forza Toro!

FORZA VECCHIO CUORE GRANATA!

NWO BABY

I doubt we will play Amoruso behind Bianchi (he would be wasted there IMO), hopefully we will line up with Rosina behind Amoruso and Bianchi

Lets get the win and start strong this year.........Forza Torino

2-0 at the half! Rosina scores a penalty and Zanetti bags a goal. Let's not get cocky.

Unfortunately I'm only following this from http://tuttotoro.eu and Gazzetta as I can't get MyP2P to work, ESPN360 is only showing Roma-Napoli, and seriea.tv is down.

FORZA VECCHIO CUORE GRANATA!

according to tuttotoro

Saumel 6,5 Buono l'esordio nel campionato italiano dell'austriaco, che dimostra buona personalità; può essere una pedina importante per il centrocampo granata.

Well, I don't understand Italian but I think he worked pretty hard but offered little creativity as usual. Do you think he'll be a regular starter or a benchwarmer?

I haven't seen him play since he left Sturm Graz.

Strong start. Granted, its Lecce. But we needed to come out of the gates strong. Great to see Bianchi open his account early.

It says, "Good debut in the Italian league for the Austrian, who displayed good character. He could be an important piece [player] for Toro this season."

I haven't seen much of him except for in the highlights of friendlies. He doesn't seem like the highlight reel type of player, or even a creative one like Corini, but he seems a very hard worker who can fill the shoes of Grella.
