Chievo 1-3 Torino

Torino have won consecutive away games for the first time this season following an impressive 3-1 victory at Chievo.

Danilo Avelar made his first start of the season at left back, whilst Luca Rossettini and Lucas Boyé also came into the starting eleven.

Boyé looked lively in the opening stages, and his deflected shot forced a good save from former Toro keeper Stefano Sorrentino.

Toro took the lead early in the second half as Adem Ljajic found space and drilled a low shot into the bottom corner from just outside the area. The Granata doubled their lead four minutes later when substitute Davide Zappacosta fired home a sensational volley as the home side failed to clear a corner.

However, Torino's long wait for a clean sheet will go on as Chievo pulled a goal back through veteran striker Sergio Pellissier who scored with a clever chipped finish over Joe Hart.

On this occasion, Torino's defensive frailties didn't come back to haunt them as Iago Falque's deflected strike made sure of all three points with fifteen minutes remaining.

Forza Toro
