Empoli 2-1 Torino

Torino ended the season in disappointing fashion as they fell to a 2-1 defeat to Empoli on Sunday evening.

Kamil Glik, Emiliano Moretti and Joel Obi all returned for Toro who still had hopes of finishing in the top ten.

However those hopes were dashed after only twelve minutes when Massimo Maccarone gave the home side the lead with a fierce strike from just outside the area.

Toro dominated the game after that set back, and Davide Zappacosta and Josef Martinez both hit the cross bar with long range efforts.

Empoli doubled their lead nine minutes into the second half as Piotr Zielinski capitalised on an error from Bruno Peres to score.

However, Toro reduced the deficit two minutes later when Joel Obi headed home Davide Zappacosta's excellent cross.

However, the Granata could not find what would have been a deserved equalised, and therefore suffered a seventeenth defeat of what has been a frustrating season.

Forza Toro
