Torino 1-2 Chievo

Torino's poor recent form continued with a disappointing 2-1 defeat at home to Chievo on Sunday afternoon.

Ciro Immobile returned to the starting eleven, whilst there were also starts for Bruno Peres, Danilo Avelar and Joel Obi.

Marco Benassi tried his luck from long distance in the early stages, but his effort was tipped over the bar by Andrea Seculin.

However Toro were ahead moments later when Ciro Immobile's left wing cross was finished exquisitely by Benassi's powerful side-foot finish.

Ciro Immobile had a great chance to double Torino's lead, but he blazed the ball over the bar following Dario Dainelli's poor clearance.

And the Granata were made to pay for that miss as Bruno Peres turned the ball into his own net ten minutes before half time.

At the beginning of the second half, Roberto Inglese's ambitious volley from a difficult angle forced a save from Daniele Padelli.

With twenty minutes remaining, Chievo were awarded a penalty when Danilo Avelar was penalised for a trip on Lucas Castro. Former Toro player Valter Birsa sent Daniele Padelli the wrong way to give Chievo the lead.

Ciro Immobile had Toro's best chance to earn a point for Toro, but his effort hit the side netting as they slipped to yet another home defeat.

Forza Toro
