Udinese 2-2 Torino

Torino came from behind to earn a point in Udine on Monday night thanks to Adem Ljajic's fine individual goal.

As expected, Marco Benassi and Daniele Baselli came back into the midfield but Lucas Boy√© was a surprise starter in place of Iago Falque.

Toro took the lead after fifteen minutes when Andrea Belotti played a perfect through ball to Marco Benassi and the former Inter midfielder finished well when one on one against Orestis Karnezis.

The Granata could have doubled their lead before half time, but this time Karnezis was able to deny Andrea Belotti who was through on goal.

Torino were made to pay for that missed chance on the hour mark when Cyril Thereau headed home a right wing cross to bring the home side level. Udinese then managed to take the lead ten minutes later when Toro failed to clear a corner, and Duvan Zapata managed to score from one yard out.

However Adem Ljajic produced another contender in what seems to be his own goal of the season competition as the Serbian winger jinked past the Udinese defence before curling a left footed shot into the bottom corner.

Toro were unable to find a winning goal in the closing stages, and a draw was probably the fair result, but the away side were left to rue not making the most of their first half dominance.
