Torino 2-0 Sampdoria

Torino's fine start to the season continued with an impressive 2-0 victory against Sampdoria on Sunday afternoon.

Emiliano Moretti returned to the Toro starting eleven whilst Afriyie Acquah made his first start in midfield.

Toro made a bright start and were ahead after only eighteen minutes when Bruno Peres' cross was met by a bullet header from former Samp striker Fabio Quagliarella. The Granata doubled that lead six minutes later when the away side failed to deal with a corner and Andrea Belotti's cross was tapped home by Quagliarella for his second of the game.

Despite their slow start, Sampdoria looked threatening going forward and Eder had a great chance to reduce the arrears when he rounded Daniele Padelli, but the Italian international could not beat either Kamil Glik or Emiliano Moretti on the line.

Padelli made a great save to deny Eder once again, whilst Toro continued to create chances on the counter attack with substitute Maxi Lopez hitting the side netting.

This was a good victory for the Granata whose bright start was key to beating a decent Sampdoria side, and moved them up to 2nd in the Serie A table for a couple of days at least.

Forza Toro
