Key Match-up:

Mohammed Salah  vs. Emiliano Moretti

Much like Roma, Torino are ravaged with injuries on the flanks and are scrambling to find solutions. Between the injuries of Cristian Molinaro and Danilo Avelar and Siniša Mihajlovic’s benching of Davide Zappacosta, the Serbian manager will likely opt for the steadier, much slower Emiliano Moretti.

Egyptian winger Mohammed Salah will have the opportunity to exploit the 35 year old Italian’s lack of pace and should have ample room to operate down his preferred right flank. Salah is Roma’s leader in chances created this season: look for the ex-Chelsea man to take advantage of his speed and try to exploit Torino’s vulnerability down the left flank.
