SPAL 2-2 Torino

Torino dropped two points once again as they threw away a 2-0 lead to draw against SPAL on Saturday afternoon. 

Lyanco returned to the starting eleven replacing Nicolas Burdisso, whilst M'Baye Niang was preferred to Alex Berenguer in attack. 

Toro made the perfect start, and were ahead with less than 30 seconds on the clock, as Cristian Molinaro's long pass was half-volleyed home by Iago Falque.

The Granata doubled their lead with only ten minutes gone, as Falque was quickest to react after Daniele Baselli's goal-bound shot was rebounded into his path.

With only three minutes to half time, the home side pulled a goal back thanks to Federico Viviani's fantastic free kick from twenty-five yards.

With twenty minutes remaining, SPAL were awarded a debatable penalty after VAR review when Lorenzo De Silvestri was adjudged to have tripped Alberto Grassi. Former Torino striker Mirco Antenucci converted the penalty to bring the newly promoted side level.

Toro came within inches to claiming a victory in the dying seconds, but Andrea Belotti saw his header cleared off the line. Therefore, Toro had to make do with a point, as they once again threw away a two goal advantage.

Forza Toro
