Torino 1-1 Lazio

Ciro Immobile's first half missed penalty proved costly as Torino could only draw 1-1 at home to Lazio on Sunday afternoon. 

Cristian Molinaro regained his place in the team, whilst Marco Benassi was preferred to Daniele Baselli in midfield.

Toro made the perfect start and were ahead after only twelve minutes when Afriyie Acquah's shot could only be parried by Federico Marchetti and Andrea Belotti was on hand to tap in. 

The Granata should have extended their lead when Belotti was upended in the area by Danilo Cataldi, but Ciro Immobile blazed the penalty over the bar. Immobile came inches away from immediately making amends for that miss, but his excellent solo run culminated in his shot going narrowly wide of the post. 

Marco Parolo almost equalised in sensational fashion, but his exquisite half volley hit the inside of the post and bounced clear. 

However, with twelve minutes remaining, Lazio were awarded a penalty when Balde Diao Keita was fouled by Cristian Molinaro in the box. Biancocelesti captain Lucas Biglia sent Padelli the wrong way, and earnt the away side a point.

Forza Toro
