Unsuccessful experiment: after the elimination from the Italian Cup with reserves, Juric restarts from the owners towards Turin-Verona
Rincon’s performance in the center of defense, the performance of Aina and Ansaldi on the wings, the return of Zaza from the first minute were a flop. And the list goes on and on. Torino in the Coppa Italia, defeated 2-1 by Sampdoria, was a failed experiment. AND Juric did not hide it: “I am disappointed with those who have played less. If we play against Verona like this we will concede six goals “. The match against Hellas in the league awaits the grenade on Sunday at 6pm. It will be the penultimate before the Christmas break, the last at home, where Toro has collected almost 80% of its points so far. The main good news, however, is that the owners will meet again.
The Torino squad is split in two
The away match in Genoa has shown, once more, that the Turin squad is split in two: on the one hand there are the new summer arrivals and who, among the “old” ones, has integrated better into the Juric system, from other there are the most disappointing veterans of the last, disastrous, years. There are few doubts on Sunday. This will revise the hinge of the midfield composed of Lukic e Escape (with the returning Mandragora ready to take over after the goal in the Cup), the attack with Sanabria, Praet and probably still Pjaca, given that Brekalo is in a bad moment. It will re-enter Singo in the right wing and, who knows, maybe even Bremer in the center of the defense: the Brazilian is still in doubt but until the end he can hope for a call-up like Djidji. For Juric these would be two other important returns, after the failed experiments on Thursday in the Italian Cup.
