Napoli the fourth place travel to a tricky Torino squad, that are looking to rebound from its most recent loss.
Napoli did win 2-1 against Brescia Calcio in their last Serie A match but in their UEFA Champions League clash midweek they had a very disappointing 0-0 draw against K.R.C Genk. If Napoli wants to move up the Serie A, Torino will prove a tough task for the Partenopei but in order to keep pace with the likes of Atalanta B.C, Internazionale, and Juventus FC standings they must continue to string together some victories.
Their Sunday opponents, Torino F.C have had have also had some ugly matches despite some very impressive ones thus far in Serie A. Coming off a loss to Parma Calcio 1913 with 3-2, Torino will need a much better effort to defeat against a much stronger SSC Napoli team.
Coach Carlo Ancelotti and the Partenopei will be without the injured duo of Lorenzo Tonelliand Nikola Maksimovic. Also, Kalidou Koulibaly their top centre-back will be missing the match due to suspension.
Torino have had no listed injuries, so that except for suspended centre-back Bremer coach Walter Mazzarri should have everyone available.
