Torino 1-1 Roma

Torino continued their fine recent form as they earnt a 1-1 draw against Champions League chasing Roma on Sunday afternoon.

As expected, Matteo Darmian came back into the starting eleven whilst perhaps surprisingly, Josef Martinez was preferred to Maxi Lopez up front.

Juan Iturbe had the first two opportunities from distance in the early stages, but the Argentine winger was unable to find a breakthrough.

Roma were awarded a penalty on the hour mark when Daniele De Rossi was seemingly upended by Emilano Moretti. Alessandro Florenzi stepped up to convert the penalty, as the Giallorossi took the lead.

However, that lead only last for seven minutes, as substitute Maxi Lopez tapped home after excellent work from Giuseppe Vives.

Roma had the better chances to win the game, but Daniele Padelli produced an excellet save to deny Alessandro Florenzi his second goal of the game. Toro are now six points away from 6th placed Sampdoria, but eight games remaining, the Granata still have time to overturn that deficit.

Forza Torino
