Torino 4-1 Pro Vercelli

Torino progressed through to the next round of the Coppa Italia following a convincing 4-1 victory over Serie B side Pro Vercelli.

Adem Ljajic was the only new signing to start the game, and the Serbian winger made the perfect start within ten minutes as he curled a free kick into the top corner from fully thirty yards.

Toro doubled their lead after twenty five minutes as Ljajic turned provider this time as his corner was headed home by Josef Martinez.

Six minutes after half time, Bruno Peres fired home a third goal for the Granata thanks to a powerful strike from outside the area. However, moments later the away side got a goal back thanks to a lovely volley from striker Andrea La Mantia.

In the closing stages, substitute Lucas Boyé scored the goal of the game as from twenty yards out, he flicked the ball up, before swivelling to hit a fine volley which flew into the net past Toro loanee Andrea Zaccagno.

Torino will now face Pisa in the next round of the cup after they beat fellow Serie B side Salernitana on penalties.

Forza Toro
