After just three matches (and three points), Zamperini sacked Alberto Malesani and kept his reputation alive in turn.
Gasperini, who was Palermo's manager before Malesani (but after Sannino), has been re-appointed.
The former Genoa and Inter coach will probably field his typical 3-man defence, with Garcia replacing the suspended Aronica.
Torino seem to have reverted the trend they had in the first half of the season. After picking up points away and struggling at home, the Granata have collected 10 points in their last 4 home matches and only 1 in their last 3 away games.
Palermo have been awful both at home and away, but they have never won outside of the Barbera. The supporters are unhappy - and rightly so - and Zamparini seems to have lost his touch when it comes to choosing and changing coaches during the season. Potentially a trip far from angry environment at home could help the Rosanero.
The hosts will try to keep ball possession and give Palermo no time to adapt to Gasperini's tactics again. As Palermo are in a very difficult psychological situation, Torino only need to avoid giving them any chance to settle and kill the match as soon as possible.
