Torino in Europe

Late on Thursday afternoon it was confirmed that Parma's appeal for a license that would allow them play in next season's Europa League had been rejected. That meant, that their place in Europe moved on to the next placed team in the Serie A table - Torino.

Whilst I am sure all Toro fans would have rather qualified in a more conventional manner, and would have done had Alessio Cerci not missed a late penalty, but this was a nice bonus.

Torino will find out their opponents for their first European match in twenty years on the 18th July when the draw for the third qualifying round is made. Their first match will be played on the 31st July (around a month before the Serie A season starts) with the second leg a week later on August 7th.
