Serie A’s surprise package Torino will be without Super Eagles star Ola Aina and Spaniard Iago Falque for Saturday’s trip to Parma in Week 31 of the Italian league, reports www.aclsports.com
Nigerian defender Aina will be missing his third and final game game of suspension after he was sent off in their league game against Bologna mid-last month while winger Falque is out due to a knee injury.
Both players missed Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Sampdoria for the same reasons but Lorenzo de Silvestri who came off injured in the game has been named in manager Walter Mazzarr’s 20-man squad for the Parma game.

Wednesday’s result took Mazzarri’s men level on points with Rome rivals AS Roma and SS Lazio and just four points adrift of AC Milan who are in the final UEFA Champions League spot.
While Torino will be hoping to continue their fairytale run on Saturday, their hosts Parma are just six points above the relegation zone and must get a result in the game starting at 2pm Nigerian time to further steer clear of relegation troubles.
Ola Aina who is on loan from English side Chelsea (with an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the season) has featured in twenty-four (24) league games for Torino this season and has scored one goal for the Turin based side.
