The home side finished 10th in Italy's top flight last season, while Torino ended the campaign in 16th, only five points clear of the relegation zone.
Fiorentina improved on their 16th-place finish from 2018-19 to claim 10th last season, but La Viola are some way off being the top-four side that they were between 2012 and 2015.
Giuseppe Iachini's record since taking charge last December has been impressive, though, winning nine of his 23 matches at the helm, suffering just six defeats.
The Purple One ended last season with back-to-back victories, while they have been in impressive form during pre-season, scoring five times in each of their three friendly encounters.
Torino, as mentioned, finished 16th in Serie A last season, which was actually their lowest final position since being relegated in 18th back in 2008-09.
The Turin outfit lost 20 of their 38 league games in 2019-20, recording just 11 wins in the process, as they finished just five points clear of the relegation zone.
The Maroons will be desperate to start their new season with a positive result, but they have only won one of their last seven Serie A matches against Fiorentina and lost 2-0 in the corresponding match last term.
Marco Giampaolo's side have been active during this summer's transfer window, with Karol Linetty, Mergim Vojvoda and Ricardo Rodriguez all arriving, while they have thus far managed to keep hold of key striker Andrea Belotti, who scored an impressive 22 goals in all competitions last season.

Torino pre-season form: WDL
Borja Valero - back with Fiorentina for a second time following a summer move from Inter Milan - is expected to line up for the home side this weekend, while Lirola is also in line to debut at the back.
Patrick Cutrone could be given the nod as the centre-forward, meanwhile, with new signing Kouame likely to start on the bench.
Linetty should also make his debut for the visitors in the middle of the park, although fellow new arrival Vojvoda, who largely operates as a right-back, is likely to start on the bench.
Fiorentina possible starting lineup:
Terracciano; Milenkovic, Pezzella, Caceres; Lirola, Valero, Pulgar, Venuti; Chiesa, Cutrone, Ribery
Torino possible starting lineup:
Rosati; Izzo, Djidji, Bremer; Berenguer, Linetty, Rincon, Rodriguez; Zaza, Verdi, Belotti
We say: Fiorentina 2-1 Torino
Torino disappointed last season, but the Turin outfit still have a lot of quality in the final third of the field. We fancy the visitors to score on Saturday but expect Fiorentina to have too much over the course of the 90 minutes, backing the home side to start their campaign with a narrow win.
