Sweet! I haven't been to a Toro game in a long, long time so I'm quite jealous.

Anyways, the Mourinho circus is coming to Torino, but I think De Biasi is smart enough not to be baited by him. Cairo I don't know about though. :D

Like chinaren said, in football everything is possible, but a point would be just fine with me. I'll be watching their game later today and maybe have some thoughts on that later.

Mourinho isn't stupid, he knows this is a tough game. Prior to the Samp game he said that a draw wouldn't be a disatster, it's his pre and post match comments with regards to Catania that were controversial. Though one can argue that Inter did miss chances to double the score in the 2nd half.

We haven't won the fixture since 1994, but then again we hadn't won a Serie A opener since 1993, so who knows?

Bianchi
Amoruso-Rosina
Säumel-Corini-P.Zanetti
Pisano-Pratali-Di Loreto-Diana
Sereni​

Will be our starting lineup. Calderoni, Colombo, Ogbonna, Rubin, Barone, Abbruscato, and Stellone will be on the bench.

Inter are expected to field:

Ibrahimovic
Figo------------Mancini
J.Zanetti-Cambiasso-Vieira
Maxwell-Materazzi-Cordoba-Maicon
Júlio César​

With Toldo, Chivu, Burdisso, Adriano, Quaresma, Balotelli, and Cruz on the bench. However, Maxwell is reportedly having fitness problems so Chivu or Burdisso could play at left back.

Forza Toro!

Worried about Rosina, TBH. Hopefully he'll be OK, because without him we'll be lacking our two main sources of service (along with Abate). Honestly, it was probably the result to be expected, but we were very unlucky. Maicon's shot went in off the bar while we were kept out by the woodwork twice, Julio Cesar had a fantastic save and we scored and own goal. Looks like De Biasi worked a little two well on finishing over the summer...:undecide:
