Roma coach Paulo Fonseca hopes to have ‘tired’ Edin Dzeko available against Brescia, but is forced to make changes due to the one-match bans for Bryan Cristante and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The press conference started with a look at the Europa League draw, but Fonseca wanted to focus on the task at hand before looking at the potential future opponents in the competition.

Giacomelli to ref Juve-Atalanta

Piero Giacomelli has been assigned to the top of the table showdown between Juventus and Atalanta, as referees are named for Saturday’s Serie A games.

Atalanta could move to within six points of the leaders with a victory in Turin, having already won nine on the bounce.

Giacomelli will officiate Juventus-Atalanta, with Massimiliano Irrati in the VAR booth.

The 42-year-old has already overseen a tense 2-2 draw between Atalanta and Napoli this season, meaning his record with La Dea is of eight wins, four draws and five defeats.

Brescia: 'Balotelli is 8kg overweight'

The official Brescia website has updated Mario Balotelli’s details to show he now weighs 99.8kg – approximately 8kg overweight.

It’s another step in the battle between the club and their star striker, who has been excluded from training amid a contract dispute.

The data was changed on his profile in the official website, showing he is 190cm tall and weighs 99.8kg (216lbs).

This would make the forward approximately 8kg (17.6lbs) overweight.

Malago wants fans back 'as soon as possible'

CONI President Giovanni Malago claims the low TV ratings in Italy are due to the lack of people in the stands and hopes to see fans in the stadium before the season is over.

Serie A has been carried out behind closed doors since the resumption and Malago thinks it has affected the viewer numbers.

He spoke at the Educamp presentation and his words were picked up by TMW: “For months they have thought us to respect the indications of the Technical and Scientific Commission (CTS).

Toro ended a run of three straight defeats but had to come back from behind after Brescia took an early lead.

“At the end of the game, I gathered the players in the middle of the park,” Longo told Sky Sport Italia.

Highlights: Torino 3-1 Brescia

Brescia thought they were going to stage another huge upset with Ernesto Torregrossa’s opener, but Torino fought back for a 3-1 victory.

This was a potentially massive clash in the relegation race, so when Toro saw their early attempts dashed and Torregrossa put Brescia in front, their heads dropped.

However, Moreno Longo’s men managed to turn it all around in the second half, as luck went their way with an Ales Mateju deflection off Simone Verdi’s shot.

Tonali leads €75m Milan triple swoop?

Milan are reportedly targeting a €75m triple swoop for Sandro Tonali, Dusan Vlahovic and Kristoffer Ajer this summer.

Tonali seemed destined for Inter, but Sky Sport Italia broke last night that incoming Milan chief Ralf Rangnick ‘really likes’ the Brescia midfielder.

Therefore, the Rossoneri are expected to make an effort for the 20-year-old, who has six assists and one goal in 27 games this season.

He has never hidden his affection for the Diavolo, with their arch-rivals yet to agree a fee and Juventus still holding back.
