Torino 1-1 Atalanta

Torino were held to a fourth consecutive Serie A draw as they were unable to hold on to a lead given to them by Nicolas N'Koulou's first goal for the club.

Nicolas Burdisso was once again preferred to Lyanco in defence, whilst Iago Falque started in place of M'Baye Niang who was not even on the bench.

Torino, wearing an unfamiliar green strip in honour of Chapecoense, struggled to create many chances in a first half devoid of quality from both teams. However, on the stroke of half time, Nicolas N'Koulou headed home Adem Ljajic's corner to give Toro the lead.

Atalanta introduced substitute Josip Iličić at half time, and within ten minutes the Slovenian made an instant impact as he broke through a weak Toro offside trap to equalise.

Andrea Belotti forced an excellent save from Etrit Berisha whilst at the other end, Salvatore Sirigu saved well from Leonardo Spinazzola but both sides had to settle for a point.

Forza Toro
