Sassuolo 1-1 Torino

Andrea Belotti scored his third goal in two games, but the Granata could not hold on to all three points as they drew 1-1 with Sassuolo on Wednesday evening.

Giampiero Ventura made four changes from the side who beat Frosinone, as Davide Zappacosta, Alessandro Gazzi, Afriyie Acquah and Gaston Silva all came into the team.

Toro took the lead mid-way through the first half after a flowing counter attack allowed an unmarked Andrea Belotti to steer home Marco Benassi's cross. Kamil Glik had a great chance to open his account for the season and double Toro's lead, but he was denied by Andrea Consigli.

Sassuolo were back on level terms when Davide Biondini's initial effort was parried by Salvador Ichazo, but Francesco Acerbi was on hand to score.

Toro had a chance to re-gain the lead in the second half, but Andrea Belotti was unable to get enough power on a shot from Ciro Immobile's cut back.

Alfred Duncan and Diego Falcinelli both missed great chances for the home side, but Torino held on for a deserved point.

Forza Toro!
