Torino 1-1 AC Milan

Torino were once again thankful to Daniele Baselli as they came from behind to earn a point against AC Milan on Sunday evening.

Cristian Molinaro returned from suspension for the home side whilst Afriyie Acquah and Alessandro Gazzi started in midfield instead of Marco Benassi and Giuseppe Vives.

In an uneventful first half, Milan captain Riccardo Montolivo had the best chance but his low drive was well saved by Daniele Padelli.

The rossoneri did take the lead mid-way through the second half after great work from Andrea Bertolacci who crossed the ball for substitute Carlos Bacca to open the scoring.

Daniele Baselli almost scored an immediate equaliser for the Granata, but his low shot whistled past the post with the aid of a deflection from Alex.

Toro brought on striker Andrea Belotti as they tried to get back into the match, and he made an instant impact as he inadvertently diverted the ball into the path of former Atalanta man Baselli who scored from a difficult angle.

The Granata had a great chance to earn all three points after on the counter attack when Acquah found Maxi Lopez in space, but the Argentine striker's effort was saved by Diego Lopez.

Toro had to settle for a point, and thus their 100% home record is now over, but this was probably a fair result.

Forza Toro
