Torino 1-1 Chievo

Andrea Belotti missed a second half penalty as Torino were held to a 1-1 draw at the Stadio Grande  Torino by Chievo.

Sinisa Mihajlovic named the same starting eleven who played so well against Inter at the San Siro a fortnight ago, with Nicolás Burdisso being preferred to the fit again Lyanco.

The away side started the game brightly, and Lucas Castro almost opened the scoring but his header rebounded of the post. However, Chievo didn't have to wait long to take the lead as Perparim Hetemaj out muscled Lorenzo De Silvestri to head home at the far post.

Toro were level just after the half hour mark when Joel Obi's excellent cross was met by a fantastic looping header from Daniele Baselli.

In the second half, Iago Falque was denied by a sensational save by Stefano Sorrentino as the former Toro keeper tipped his volley onto the bar, whilst Andrea Belotti blazed the rebound over the bar.

With twenty minutes remaining, Torino were awarded a penalty with the assistance of VAR after Andrea Belotti was upended by Massimo Gobbi. However, the out of sorts Belotti was denied by the veteran Sorrentino, who guessed the right way to save what was a poor penalty.

Chievo had Ivan Radovanović sent off in the dying moments, but Toro could not capitalise and had to make do with a point.

Forza Toro
