Serie A Preview | Torino vs. Salernitana: Seeking their first points

It has been a dismal start to the season for both Torino and Salernitana, but Franck Ribery could make his debut for the visitors.

These teams are still on zero points, although the Granata have arguably been unlucky under Ivan Juric with slender losses to Atalanta and Fiorentina, with the club finally starting to invest in new players more suited to his football during the final days of the transfer session.

However, Andrea Belotti, Armando Izzo and Simone Verdi are carrying knocks, with Simone Zaza out of action. Josip Brekalo should be rushed straight into the starting XI.

Salernitana fans went wild at the presentation of free agent Ribery and he could make his debut, but likely off the bench, as Nwankwo Simy and Federico Bonazzoli lead the way. Riccardo Gagliolo hopes to bolster their leaky defence after his move from Parma.

Stat fact: Torino have not won any of their last seven games against newly-promoted Serie A teams, managing just five draws and two defeats.
