Cagliari 2-3 Torino

Torino recorded their first away win since November as they came from behind to beat Cagliari on Sunday afternoon.

Brazilian defender Carlão made his debut at centre back, whilst Toro lined up in a new 4-2-3-1 formation with Adem Ljajic moved into a more central role.

With less than twenty minutes gone on the clock, the Granata conceded a penalty when Carlão was adjudged to have pulled back Artur Ionita in the area, and Marco Borriello stepped up to convert.

However, Toro soon equalised as nice interplay between Andrea Belotti and Adem Ljajic resulted in the Serbian scoring an exquisite strike from distance. Torino then took the lead six minutes later when Davide Zappacosta's cross was headed home by Andrea Belotti - his 24th league goal of an incredible campaign.

Torino extended their lead in the early stages of the second half, as Ghanaian midfielder Afriyie Acquah once again scored a great goal from outside the area after receiving a pass from Iago Falque.

Cagliari scored a second goal in injury time to give Toro a nervous few moments as Kwang Song Han became the first North Korean to score in Serie A as he headed home Diego Farias' cross, but Torino held on for all three points.

Forza Toro
