Lazio 3-1 Torino

Torino's poor away record continued on Monday evening as they conceded two late goals to lose 3-1 against Lazio.

The home side dominated the first half, with former Toro striker Ciro Immobile going closest but he was denied by Joe Hart.

Sinisa Mihajlovic made a rare defensive change to begin the second half, with Cristian Molinaro returning from injury to replace Daniele Baselli as the Granata changed to a more conservative formation. However, Lazio would take the lead just before the hour mark as Immobile capitalised on Emiliano Moretti's failure to clear a low cross.

Maxi Lopez came on with Torino looking to force an equaliser, and the Argentine striker provided it after being on the pitch for less than ten minutes as he headed home Juan Iturbe's free kick.

Torino were looking a threat on the counter attack, but with less than five minutes remaining, substitute Keita Baldé gave Lazio the lead thanks to an outstanding long range effort.

Felipe Anderson added a third goal in injury time with Torino chasing an equaliser, as the Granata's poor away form continued.

Forza Toro
