Liveblog: Torino-Lazio and Genoa-Juventus

Join us for the build-up and action as it happens from today’s two big Serie A games, as Torino host Lazio and Juventus are in Genoa.

We start at 18:30 GMT at the Grande Torino in Turin, where the Granata face title candidates Lazio. The Biancocelesti bounced back with a 2-1 win against Fiorentina after having failed to prolong their unbeaten run in the first match back against high-scoring Atalanta.

Torino coach Moreno Longo picked up his first win in their last home game against Udinese and 14th-placed Torino are desperate to pick up another three points and pull further away from the relegation battle.

The reverse fixture ended in a 4-0 win for the Aquile, when Francesco Acerbi scored the opener, Ciro Immobile bagged a brace and Andrea Belotti scored an own-goal in the dying seconds at the Olimpico.

But Torino could be inspired by their 3-1 win at home against Simone Inzaghi’s men last season, as the two sides form shows 2-1-2 in the last five meetings.

At 20:45 GMT, Genoa take on Juventus at the Marassi, when two sides in the opposite ends of the table fight it out for three decisive points.

Maurizio Sarri’s men have established a four-point lead down to second-placed Lazio and will be looking to continue their run of five wins in a row tonight.

Genoa, on the other hand, are only one point above the relegation zone and a defeat could give their direct rivals a chance to surpass them, as 17th-placed Lecce and 16th-placed Sampdoria face each other on Wednesday.
