Genoa's trip to Torino

With Genoa's Europa League berth settled, the Rossoblu travel to face troubled Torino.

This is unquestionably what they would call a match of pride. For Gian Piero Gasperini's side their fate is already set and if the time is used properly, it will mean younger players are given the opportunity to play in a higher pressure environment. Whether this proves out remains to be seen but with Torino scrapping to avoid relegation, it will be a tough fight.

Genoa's absences are unchanged with Raffaele Palladino and Giuseppe Biava out. Diego Milito, fresh on the heels of the announecement that he is headed to Inter Milan, will lead the attacking trident of Giuseppe Sculli and Boško Janković. Torino has come alive at the end of the campaign with Rolando Bianchi showing the confidence deserving of his vast potential.
