Torino's disappointing start to 2017 continued as they were held to a 1-1 draw by an impressive Atalanta side on Sunday afternoon.
Torino made the brighter start and were ahead after only sixteen minutes when excellent work from Antonio Barreca down the left wing resulted in his cross being headed home by Iago Falque.
At the other end, Atalanta were almost level when Antonio Barreca inadvertently deflected the ball onto his own crossbar from a corner. The away side were coming into the game and Joe Hart had to make a good save to deny Rafael Tolói.
Atalanta were deservedly level mid-way through the second half when Andrea Petagna rolled Luca Rossettini and stabbed the ball past Joe Hart.
Former Toro midfielder Jasmin Kurtič missed two great chances to give La Dea the lead, but he blazed his effort high over the crossbar on both occasions.
Adem Ljajic came closest to scoring a winner for Toro, but his free kick went narrowly wide of the post as the Granata had to settle for a point.
