D'Ambrosio is back available, but coach Ventura could keep Darmian and Masiello as full-backs.
After being the match-winner against Atalanta, Birsa looks favoured over Stevanovic to play on the left flank and replace Santana.
Barreto and Bianchi should start up front, leaving Meggiorini out.
Cagliari are unbeaten in their last six matches, but still the relegation zone is too close to drop any points at home. The Sardinians are still coping with a difficult board situation and safety issues with the stadium.
Torino will try to prove once again their strength away from home - as of Friday, have the 8th best away record in the league - and keep some distance from the relegation zone. Given their points tally, a draw in Cagliari could be enough for Ventura's team.
Expect an open match, since Cagliari will try to win it and Torino are safe enough to go for more than just a point from the start. The visitors will try to keep the tempo high, but Cagliari are more likely to control the match and try to slow things down. Toro would settle for a draw should the match prove harder than expected in the first half.
