Carpi 2-1 Torino

Torino wasted the chance to go top of Serie A for the first time since 1977 after a disappointing 2-1 defeat at Carpi on Saturday evening.

With Daniele Baselli and Cristian Molinaro unavailable, The Granata had to make changes with Alessandro Gazzi and Gaston Silva coming into the team.

Ryder Matos had a great opportunity to give the home side the lead, but he headed straight at Daniele Padelli in the Toro goal. At the other end, Gaston Silva had a great opportunity for Torino, but his volley was parried by Vid Belec.

Maxi Lopez was proving to be a constant handful for the Carpi defence, and his swivelled shot went narrowly wide of the post just before half time.

Carpi took the lead in fortunate fashion, when Gabriel Silva's long range shot rebounded off the post, and then hit Daniele Padelli before going in. The home side doubled their lead when Marco Borriello's excellent cross was headed home by Ryder Matos after a quick counter attack.

It took only three minutes for Toro to get back into the game, as they were awarded a penalty after Maxi Lopez was upended by Igor Bubnjic. The Argentine stepped forward to take the kick himself and immediately reduced the arrears.

But the Granata could not find an equaliser in the dying stages, and continue to struggle away from the Stadio Olimpico - having lost two of their last three away games.

Forza Toro
