Line-ups: Torino-RNK Split

Torino have a must-win Europa League qualifier against RNK Split this evening, so look to Fabio Quagliarella.

It kicks off at 19.30 UK time (18.30 GMT) and follows on from the 0-0 first leg result in Croatia.

That means a goalless draw would force extra time, but a score-draw would send RNK Split through to the Europa League proper.

A win is the only result Toro need to end their 20-year absence from European competition.

Star player Alessio Cerci has been left out of the squad due to the on-going transfer saga involving Milan, Atletico Madrid and Arsenal for around €20m.

Marcelo Larrondo is also ruled out with a thigh problem, so Paulo Vitor Barreto partners ex-Juventus striker Quagliarella.

Antonio Nocerino had been expected to start, but he’s benched in favour of Marco Benassi and Omar El Kaddouri.

The Stadio Olimpico in Turin is packed with over 20,000 tickets sold for this game.

RNK proved themselves dangerous on the counter-attack in the first leg and the man to watch is 33-year-old veteran Mate Bilic, who scored five goals in the preliminary rounds already.

Their Coach is Ivan Matic.

Torino: Padelli; Maksimovic, Glik, Moretti; Darmian, Benassi, Vives, El Kaddouri, Molinaro; Barreto, Quagliarella

Torino bench: Gillet, Bovo, Jansson, Vesovic, Gazzi, Nocerino, Martinez

RNK Split: Vukovic; Ibriks, Galovic, Glumac, Rugasevic; Bagaric, Dujmovic, Vidovic, Rog, Glavina; Bilic

RNK bench: Zagorac, Vrgoc, Radotic, Vojnovic, Roce, Kvesic
