Torino 2-0 Udinese

Torino now hold European qualification in their own hands after a convincing 2-0 victory over Udinese moved them into 6th place.

As expected,  Alessio Cerci returned from suspension to lead the line upfront alongside Serie A Capocannoniere Ciro Immobile upfront.

The Granata made a perfect start after just fifteen minutes, when Omar El Kaddouri cut in from the left wing before firing a low shot past Simone Scuffet. Toro almost doubled their lead soon afterwards, but Emiliano Moretti's header from a Ciro Immobile cross was off target.

The Granata finally did double their lead just before the hour mark, when Serbian defender Nikola Maksimovic threaded a perfect through ball to Immobile who scored his 21st goal of a remarkable campaign.

Riccardo Meggiorini replaced Ciro Immobile with twenty minutes remaining, and the hardworking striker almost scored his first goal of the season but he was denied by Scuffet. Opponents Udinese rarely threatened the Granata and were largely restricted to long range efforts, and Torino can only hope that their remaining three games are as straightforward as this one.

Forza Toro

  1. However things pan out over the last few weeks, what an amazing season it's been! With help from Inter (I feel dirty saying that) hopefully we can wrap up 6th place before the trip to Florence.
    Forza Toro
