Torino fell to their seventh home defeat of a disappointing season as they were beaten 2-1 by Napoli on Sunday evening.
Giampiero Ventura picked the same starting eleven who had thrashed Udinese last weekend, although Ciro Immobile was fit enough for a place on the bench.
Napoli took the lead on twelve minutes when Marek Hamsik played in Gonzalo Higuain who finished past Daniele Padelli to score his thirty-third league goal of what has been an excellent campaign for the Argentine.
That lead was doubled less than ten minutes later, and Hamsik was once again the provider as his low cross was tapped home by Jose Callejon.
Higuian almost added a third before half time, but his curling shot from just outside the box rebounded off the post.
After a change in approach at half time, Toro came back into the game in the second half, and pulled a goal back through Bruno Peres whose unconventional finish was enough to deceive Pepe Reina.
Ciro Immobile made his return from injury with twelve minutes remaining but Toro were unable to find an equaliser and to cap off a miserable night, Giuseppe Vives was dismissed for a second yellow card in injury time.
