Torino 2-1 Chievo

Torino made it three successive league wins with a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Chievo on Saturday evening.

The Granata made a bright start and Andrea Belotti and Adem Ljajic both had half chances to open the scoring. Ten minutes before half time, Antonio Barreca's excellent cross found Iago Falque unmarked at the far post and the Spaniard headed past Stefano Sorrentino to give Toro the lead.

Torino doubled their lead three minutes later and it was that man Falque who curled an exquisite left footed shot into the top corner.

Toro were given a fright in the closing stages when Roberto Inglese headed home Valter Birsa's corner with only five minutes remaining. However, Chievo's chances of salvaging a draw were damaged when Fabrizio Cacciatore was sent off for dissent in the final minute.

Davide Zappacosta should have added a third goal with the last kick of the game, but he shot wide with Adem Ljajic and Andrea Belotti well placed.

Forza Toro
