PREVIEW: FC TORINO - AS ROMA
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
SCOTT PETERSON - Friday, April 12, 2013
Michael Bradley will hope to crack the starting 11 for the second time in as many weeks for the Giallorossi of AS Roma, who travels to Turin to take on FC Torino on Sunday.

Bradley figures to be on the field when Sunday's tie kicks off assuming head coach Aurelio Andreazzoli will be without the services of Danielle de Rossi, who has not practiced this week after picking up a knock versus Lazio last week.

De Rossi's possible absence is the only concern for Roma, who does not have any other injuries or suspensions to report.

That's good news for the Roman ambitions for Europe next year. The Giallorossi are currently in seventh spot with 48 points, two back of Inter and three back of Lazio. Finishing sixth could be enough to qualify, but a fifth-place finish would guarantee them a spot in the competition.

The opposition comes in the shape of newly-promoted FC Torino. I Granata are currently in a respectable 15th spot, but more importantly they are nine points clear of the drop.

Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday in Torino.
