Torino 4-1 Cesena

Torino progressed to the last 16 of the Coppa Italia and a tie against Juventus after a convincing 4-1 win over Cesena on Tuesday evening.

The Granata made a number of changes from the side who beat Bologna on Saturday and it only took three minutes for Torino to take the lead.

Daniele Baselli's corner caused havoc for the Cesena defence and although Emiliano Moretti and Josef Martinez both had efforts saved, Alessandro Gazzi finally bundled the ball home. Toro doubled their lead ten minutes later, as another Baselli corner was flicked on by Gazzi and Emiliano Moretti tapped in.

Josef Martinez was so close to getting his first goal of the season, but the Venezuelan somehow saw his effort cleared off the line by strike partner Maxi Lopez.

Six minutes after half time Toro added to their lead after great interplay between Martinez and Lopez allowed the latter to score with a nice finish past Federico Agliardi.

Emmanuel Cascione reduced the arrears for the away side with 25 minutes remaining, but Marco Benassi put the result beyond any doubt with an excellent solo effort in the closing stages.

Forza Toro
