Torino 0-1 Roma

Torino's winless run stretched to four matches as they fell to a narrow defeat to Roma on Sunday afternoon.

Toro were unchanged from the team who drew with Crotone last week, with striker Umar Sadiq continuing to deputise for the injured Andrea Belotti.

The unorthodox Sadiq was causing problems for his parent club, when he could stay onside, and the Nigerian blazed over the bar when through on goal.

On the stroke of half time, Roma should have taken the lead but Kevin Strootman somehow failed to convert from only two yards out.

Toro looked unusually toothless in the final third and struggled to create clear cut chances in the absence of Andrea Belotti.

With twenty minutes remaining, Aleksandar Kolarov struck an excellent free kick from twenty five yards past Salvatore Sirigu to give the away side the lead.

Torino, who if truth be told, never looked like scoring all afternoon could not find an equaliser and fell to their second defeat of the Serie A season.

Forza Toro

  1. All that came to a brilliant and stunning free kick. Sad loss for us but the team really played by their heart and the match was very lit and intense till the end,
