Torino 5-0 Cesena

Torino ended the Serie A season with an impressive 5-0 victory over the already relegated Cesena on Sunday evening.

Uruguayan goalkeeper Salvador Ichazo made his Toro debut, whilst Maxi Lopez was fit again to partner Josef Martinez upfront.

Toro took the lead after only ten minutes when Marco Benassi's deflected shot was parried into the path of Josef Martinez who headed home.

The Granata doubled their lead moments later when Martinez's header crashed off the crossbar, and enabled striker partner Maxi Lopez to tap in from close range.

Torino added a third goal before half time, as Marco Benassi scored another sensational goal against Cesena - this time a long range effort from fully 35 yards.

Four minutes into the second half, Emiliano Moretti scored his second goal of the season as he headed home from a corner.

With twenty minutes remaining, Maxi Lopez doubled his tally for the night, as he capitalised on a poor clearance by the Cesena defence to score.

This was the perfect way to end what has been a memorable season, as the Granata scored five goals for the third time this campaign.

And despite the poor start to the season, and the extra fatigue playing in the Europa League brought, Toro finished the season in 9th place on 54pts - only three points less than last season's tally.

Forza Toro
