Torino 2-2 Udinese

Torino fought back from 2-0 down to earn a point at the Stadio Grande Torino against Udinese on Sunday.

David Zappacosta came close to giving Toro an early lead, but his long range shot whistled narrowly past the post. At the other end, Duvan Zupata somehow managed to miss from Stipe Perica's cross when it seemed easier to score.

Andrea Belotti and Luca Rossettini both hit the woodwork with headers just before the break as an entertaining half somehow ended goalless.

However, five minutes into the second half, Czech midfielder Jakub Jankto intercepted Emiliano Moretti's pass before firing a fierce left footed shot into the top corner.

Belotti hit the bar for a second time before the Granata were caught on the counter attack and Perica doubled Udinese's lead from close range. However, two minutes later, Toro were given a lifeline when Emiliano Moretti reacted quickest to swivel and score.

The comeback was complete when Andrea Belotti headed home Zappacosta's excellent cross to equalise with seven minutes remaining an earn Toro a deserved point.

Forza Toro
