Dario Dainelli could make his Genoa debut against former Fiorentina teammate Luca Toni this weekend.

Dainelli will be hoping to make his Genoa debut under coach Gian Piero Gasperini after joining the Grifoni club from Fiorentina earlier this week.

Toni has also changed clubs this month, joining Roma on loan from Bayern Munich and making an impressive first appearance for the Giallorossi last week.

"I have spoken to Luca," said Dainelli.

"He called me up and we joked about the fact that we could face each other as rivals immediately.

"If I play, I will know how to stop him."
