Torino 0-0 Carpi

Torino's disappointing home form continued as they were held to a 0-0 draw by relegation threatened Carpi on Sunday afternoon.

The Granata made only one change from the team who beat Palermo last weekend, as Gaston Silva replaced Davide Zappacosta in defence.

Andrea Belotti came close to giving Toro the lead, but his header from Bruno Peres' cross was well saved by Vid Belec. The former Palermo man was only inches away from scoring moments later, but couldn't connect with Ciro Immobile's left wing cross.

A mesmerising run from Daniele Baselli had the home fans on their feet, but unfortunately the finish was weak and off target.

Daniele Baselli and Ciro Immobile both should have done better in the second half when well place, with the former being particularly guilty of a poor miss as he blazed over the bar.

With thirteen minutes remaining, Toro had the perfect chance to open the scoring when Andrea Belotti was upended in the area. However, substitute Maxi Lopez saw his penalty saved by Vid Belec as Carpi held on for a point.

Forza Toro
