Torino 2-1 Cagliari

Torino won for the first time since September as they came from behind to clinch a crucial three points against Cagliari.

Sinisa Mihajlovic, who was rumoured to be facing the sack should Toro lose, changed to a 4-3-3 formation for this match and was also boosted by the news that Andrea Belotti was available following injury.

The Granata went behind after half an hour following a quick fire counter attack that resulted in Diego Farias finding Nicolò Barella who finished well.

Toro only had to wait ten minutes for their equaliser, and it was another well worked goal, as Adem Ljajic found Cristian Ansaldi in space, and the versatile Argentine crossed for Iago Falque to tap home.

In the second half, Adem Ljajic and Andrea Belotti both missed excellent chances to give Toro the lead. However, with twenty five minutes remaining, Cagliari failed to clear the ball from a corner, and substitute Joel Obi headed home from close range.

Andrea Belotti and Daniele Baselli both missed late chances to increase the margin of victory and reduce the nerves of the supporters, but Toro managed to hold on for a much needed victory.

Forza Toro
