Benevento 0-1 Torino

Torino left it late to claim their second Serie A victory of the season as Iago Falque's injury time winner gave the Granata all three points.

Toro made two changes from the side who beat Sassuolo, as Cristian  Molinaro replaced Antonio Barreca and M'Baye Niang made his debut, with the deadline day arrival replacing Alex Berenguer.

Amato Ciciretti came close to opening the scoring for the home side, but his free kick was tipped over the bar by Salvatore Sirigu. At the other end, Adem Ljajic was looking bright in the early stages, and the Serbian international twice forced Vid Belec into making a saves from long range.

Moments before half time, Sirigu produced a sensational save to turn Massimo Coda's goal bound shot around the post.

Benevento were creating chances, especially on the counter attack, and Sirigu once again had to be at his best, this time to deny substitute Achraf Lazaar.

However, in the dying seconds, Benevento were cruelly denied a first ever Serie A point as Adem Ljajic's excellent through ball found Iago Falque, and the Spaniard kept calm to secure a somewhat undeserved victory.

Forza Toro
