Line-ups: Torino-Lecce

Torino are without Nicolas Nkoulou against Lecce in Serie A this evening, while new signing Simone Verdi is a substitute.

Nkoulou has been accepted back into the Toro fold after he failed to secure a move away, but the defender will not resume training until Tuesday.

Verdi is also being eased into the XI following his deadline-day return from Napoli, so Alex Berenguer partners Andrea Belotti up top, with Simone Zaza on the bench.

On the left, Ola Aina starts over Milan loanee Diego Laxalt, who similarly needs to get up to speed.

Lecce, for their part, hand a full debut to former Cagliari winger Diego Farias, but Khouma Babacar must wait a little longer for his bow in yellow and red.

The Granata can leapfrog Juventus and move level on points with leaders Inter if they win tonight, while the Salentini are out to avoid a third straight defeat. 

Torino: Sirigu; Izzo, Djidji, Bonifazi; De Silvestri, Baselli, Rincon, Meite, Aina; Belotti, Berenguer

Lecce: Gabriel; Rispoli, Lucioni, Rossettini, Calderoni; Tabanelli, Tachtsidis, Majer; Falco; Lapadula, Farias

Referee: Giua
