Sassuolo 0-0 Torino

Torino were unable to find a breakthrough in Reggio Emilia as they began the New Year with a 0-0 draw with Sassuolo on Sunday afternoon.

Toro started the game brightly and should have taken the lead in the opening stages, but Adem Ljajic was guilty of a heavy first touch when well placed.

Andrea Belotti almost scored his first goal of 2017, but his sensational attempt at an overhead kick went narrowly wide of the post. On the stroke of half time, Luca Rossettini almost diverted Ljajic's cross towards goal at the near post.

Juan Iturbe came on to make his Toro debut in the second half as the Granata looked for a winning goal, and Andrea Belotti once again went close, this time with a header.

Iago Falque almost claimed all three points for Torino, but his free kick which looked to be heading into the net, only found the side netting.

Sassuolo had a few half chances in the latter stages of the second half, but the home side appeared to be satisfied for a point from a game that Toro had largely controlled.

Forza Toro
