Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino
Sunday, 19 March 2023
Kick-off is at 15h00
Torino FC will lock horns with SSC Napoli in an Italian Serie A
match at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino on March 19.
The Maroons emerged as 2-0 winners over US Lecce away on March 12 to make it two matches without a defeat in the league.
Torino are also undefeated in their last three matches at home having recorded one draw and two wins at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
While Napoli claimed a 2-0 win over Atalanta BC at home on March 11 as they bounced back to winning ways in Serie A.
The Little Donkeys are undefeated in their last five matches on the road having registered five consecutive wins as the visitors.
What Is At Stake
Torino are placed eighth on the league standings and their ambitions of finishing in the top six are very much alive.
The Maroons are five points behind sixth-placed Atalanta and they will reduce the gap if they defeat Napoli, and the Goddess drop points.
They will be up against a Napoli side which is placed at the top of the standings and a win over Torino would boost their ambitions of winning the league title.
Torino players Valentino Lazaro, David Zima, Nikola Vlasic, Ronaldo Vieira and Yann Karamoh are all out injured while Etrit Berisha is suspended.
Meanwhile, Napoli stars Giacomo Raspadori, Min-jae Kim and Alex Meret are out injured, but Napoli have no suspension concerns.
Antonio Sanabria, who has established himself as Torino's first-choice attacker having scored seven goals and provided two assists in the Serie A this term, will pose a serious threat to Napoli.
While Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is the Napoli player to watch out for as the Georgian winger has netted 11 goals in the current league campaign including one against Atalanta on March 11.

“These are matches of the highest level and up front we had a team that put in an important performance," Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti said after their win over Atalanta.
"They knew how to create difficulties for us within duels. Atalanta are strong and have excellent training sessions. Scoring goals and winning this match was essential.
"We were coming off a defeat and once again Napoli reacted as a great team. For a match we lost, many rushed on us… We have an exceptional fan-base behind us."
Napoli emerged as 3-1 winners over Torino in their last meeting in the league which was on 1 October 2022 at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
As a result, the Little Donkeys are undefeated in their last 15 league matches against the Maroons having recorded 11 wins and four draws during the unbeaten run.
