Adem Ljajic went close in the early stages but his effort went narrowly wide of the post. However, at the other end, Sampdoria took the lead with only twelve minutes gone as Czech striker Patrik Schick fired home from just outside the area.
Iago Falque and Lucas Boyè both missed good chances for the Granata as they went in at the break behind. However, with just over ten minutes remaining, substitute Juan Iturbe equalised for Toro after capitalising on a defensive error to score his first goal for the club.
In the dying seconds, top scorer Andrea Belotti had a great chance to win the game for Torino but he somehow headed over the bar from close range.
