Juventus 4-0 Torino

Torino crashed out of the Coppa Italia after a humiliating 4-0 defeat to city rivals Juventus on Wednesday evening.

Giampiero Ventura started with Salvador Ichazo in goal in place of regular number one Daniele Padelli, whilst Fabio Quagliarella was left on the bench as Andrea Belotti and Maxi Lopez started up front.

After a tentative start to the game, a controversial moment changed the game as referee Daniele Doveri failed to dismiss Juventus striker Simone Zaza. The former Sassuolo man, who was already on a yellow card made a late challenge on Toro keeper Ichazo, but the referee failed to produce a second yellow.

To add insult to injury, Juventus took the lead moments later when Alvaro Morata's cross was volleyed home by who else, Simone Zaza.

Toro's task was made even tougher just four minutes into the second half when former Juventus man Cristian Molinaro received a second yellow card. And from the resulting free kick, with the assistance of some poor Torino defending, Simone Zaza scored his second of the game.

Juve substitute Paulo Dybala curled in a third goal, whilst Paul Pogba made it 4-0 with a long range free kick late on to cap a miserable night for the Granata.

Forza Toro!
