Torino Coach Ivan Juric Focused On Winning Midfield Battle Against Inter, Italian Media Argue
Torino coach Ivan Juric is likely to turn to Rolando Mandragora and Tommaso Pobega to cause problems for Inter in their Serie A clash tomorrow.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Granata coach has options at his disposal to frustrate the league champions at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, particularly in midfield.
These include AC Milan loanee Pobega and Mandragora, currently on loan from city rivals Juventus, with the former having the energy to drive Torino forward, as well as keep Marcelo Brozovic in check. The latter, meanwhile, possesses the guile and an eye for a pass to damage Inter.
In addition, Juric is also expected to turn to fellow midfielder Sasa Lukic, who will protect Torino’s defence with composure and discipline, as the Granata look to win the battle in the middle of the pitch.
The match against Inter is also expected to lead to Torino’s biggest attendance of the season amidst restrictions, with 13,000 tickets already sold and confidence that it will surpass the 13,100 in attendance for a game against Sampdoria earlier in the campaign.
