Five years have elapsed since their last Serie A encounter, a match that saw Torino emerge with a 2-1 victory. Torino enters the forthcoming match on the heels of a win against Lecce last Sunday in Serie A.

On the other side, Frosinone celebrated a win against Verona on October 8, faced defeats from Cagliari, Bologna, and Roma, and drew with Fiorentina and Salernitana.
Torino’s lineup will be missing several key players due to injuries, with Nikola Vlašić out with a head injury, Koffi Djidji with a herniated disc, Brandon Soppy sidelined due to a hamstring injury, and Perr Schuurs out with a cruciate ligament injury. Ivan Jurić will have to make do without these players.
Eusebio Di Francesco’s squad choices at Frosinone are also limited. Injuries rule out Marvin Cuni and Sergio Kalaj, whose conditions are undisclosed, while Francesco Gelli with a muscle injury and Abdou Harroui recovering from foot surgery are also absent from the lineup.
