Torino 2-1 Atalanta

Torino clinched their first home win since January after a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Atalanta on Sunday afternoon.

Captain Kamil Glik returned to the starting eleven following suspension, whilst Joel Obi was surprisingly preferred to both Marco Benassi and Daniele Baselli in midfield.

Atalanta made the better start and Boukary Drame and Mauricio Pinilla both had great chances for the away side to take the lead.

However, ten minutes before half time, an exquisite Afriyie Acquah pass found Bruno Peres, and the Brazilian fired the ball into the top corner for his first goal of the season.

Less than a minute into the second half, Toro doubled their lead when an error from Atalanta defender Guglielmo Stendardo was capitalised on by Maxi Lopez who finished calmly.

With less than ten minutes remaining Luca Cigarini's free kick ensured a nervy ending for Toro, but the Granata held on to claim a second successive vctory.

Forza Toro
