Torino 4-2 Frosinone

Torino won their first game since November as they beat Frosinone 4-2 on Saturday evening, with the returning Ciro Immobile amongst the scorers.

Immobile started upfront on his 'second' debut for the club, whilst Uruguayan goalkeeper Salvador Ichazo was preferred to Daniele Padelli in goal.

Toro made a bright start and were awarded a penalty in the opening ten minutes when Kamil Glik was pulled back by Davide Bertoncini. Ciro Immobile had to take the spot kick twice, due to encroachment, but on both occasions sent Nicola Leali the wrong way.

The Granata failed to build on their great start and were rightfully punished by the visitors who equalised through Paolo Sammarco's sensational header from Daniel Pavlovic's cross.

However Toro were back in front just four minutes later, and Immobile was once again heavily involved as his header was initially saved by Leali, but Andrea Belotti was on hand to score.

Torino then extended their lead even further just before half time when Frosinone failed to clear a corner, and that enabled Nikola Maksimovic to find Belotti who fired the ball into the roof of the net.

Frosinone were once again given a lifeline mid-way through the second half when substitute Danilo Avelar diverted a corner into his own net.

However, with less than ten minutes remaining, Toro secured all three points when Belotti's low cross found Marco Benassi, who finished smartly.

Forza Toro!
