Serie A Matchday 14: siena vs TORO

http://www.channel4.com/sport/footba...9/sie-tor.html

Serie A Week 14 - 30/11/08 (14.00 UK)
Siena - Torino

Stadio Franchi

Torino face a difficult away trip to the Stadio Franchi as they take on form-team Siena. Both sides did well at the weekend, but the Granata always struggle away from home and may suffer in Tuscany too.

Siena were successful in Verona last Sunday and they are now sitting in a mid-table position with 16 points, four more than the Piemontesi. The Bianconeri have not been defeated at home this year either, conceding only two goals in six games.

“It was an important and fully deserved victory,” commented Marco Giampaolo at the end of the game against Chievo. “We are happy about our position in the table, but also about the way we are playing at the moment.”

Toro come from a controversial draw against Milan. It was an important boost for the Granata’s morale although they were lucky to be awarded a penalty in the last few minutes of the game. The Torinesi, however, remain only one point clear of the relegation zone.

“We played a great game against the Rossoneri and I don’t think the referee helped us,” said Gianni De Biasi. “We are improving, we only need to continue to play this way. I am glad Alessandro Rosina is back, now we are waiting for Rolando Bianchi.”

The locals will be without long-term injuries Dimitrios Eleftheropoulos and Daniele Ficagna. Lorenzo Del Prete, with a twisted ankle, and Paul Codrea are doubtful. Giampaolo should field Luca Rossettini in the centre of the defence while he is yet to decide between former Toro ace Emanuele Calaiň and Abdel Ghezzal.

The visitors travel to Siena without Dominique Malonga, Eugenio Corini and Ignazio Abate. Rosina should start his second consecutive game while it will have to be seen whether De Biasi will once again prefer Roberto Stellone to Bianchi.

Keep an eye on: Alessandro Rosina (Torino) – Rosinaldo gave a solid performance last Sunday night against Milan, creating openings for his teammates and scoring the equaliser from the penalty spot. He now needs to follow that route and return to show us what he can do…

Last season: Siena 0-0 Torino

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

0-1 the final. That was absolutely appalling. De Biasi fuori!

FORZA VECCHIO CUORE GRANATA!
