Sampdoria 2-0 Torino

Torino lost their first game since late October as they fell to a 2-0 defeat against Sampdoria on Sunday afternoon.

Toro made a bright start as Iago Falque hit the bar in the early stages, whilst Adem Ljajic's free kick forced a save out of Christian Puggioni.

Puggioni made another save to deny Andrea Belotti at the start of the second half, and Toro were then made to pay for their missed chances.

Once again it was a set piece that caused the Toro defence problems, and that allowed Edgar Barreto to swivel and stab the ball into the far corner.

Toro went in search of an equaliser, and Belotti was once again denied by Puggioni and substitute Maxi Lopez saw a goal narrowly disallowed for offside.

In the dying seconds, Toro were dealt a sucker punch as Czech striker Patrick Schick fired through Joe Hart's legs to seal all three points for Samp.

Forza Toro
