It's a new year, and it's time for the Serie A season to begin again. Napoli are hosting Torino, and thanks to all their rivals in the table save Roma winning, the pressure is on for Napoli to pick up a win themselves to maintain their third-place position coming into the day and keep pace with Inter atop the table.
Fortunately for Napoli, they've done very well against Torino in recent years, and with that added to the club's impressive home form, hopes are high coming into this game. They'll have to do it without two key midfielders -- Jorginho is suspended and Allan is apparently not quite fit after entering the winter break pretty banged up, so Mirko Valdifiori and David Lopez will be starting in their place. Interestingly, Henrique isn't on the bench despite not having officially left the club yet, with Sebastiano Luperto in his usual spot among the reserves.
Torino are going with their usual 3-5-2, with Bruno Peres returning from suspension, and rumored Napoli transfer target Nikola Maksimovic still not even making the bench as he tries to come back from a broken foot. They still have ex-Napoli striker Fabio Quagliarella in the lineup, though, and we all know how much he likes to make life difficult for his former club.
Napoli: Reina; Hysaj, Albiol, Koulibaly, Ghoulam; David Lopez, Valdifiori, Hamsik; Callejon, Higuain, Insigne
Torino: Padelli; Bovo, Glik, Moretti; Peres, Acquah, Vives, Baselli, Molinaro; Belotti, Quagliarella
