Bologna 2-0 Torino

Torino are still looking for their first win of 2017 after they fell to a disappointing away defeat against Bologna on Sunday afternoon.

Toro almost went behind in the opening five minutes, but Joe Hart produced an excellent save to deny Marios Oikonomou.

At the other end, Adem Ljajic almost gave the Granata the lead but his long range free kick was tipped over the bar by Antonio Mirante.

Bologna took the lead two minutes before half time, as former Toro midfielder Blerim Dzemaili swept home from close range.

Marco Benassi almost brought Torino level in the second half, but he was unable to get a decisive touch from Iago Falque's corner.

With Toro looking for an equaliser, Sinisa Mihajlovic threw on Juan Iturbe and Josef Martinez, but they were caught on the counter attack by Dzemaili who scored his second of the game.

This was Torino's seventh defeat of the season, six of which have been away from home which clearly shows where the Granata needs to improve.

Forza Toro
