Chievo 0-0 Torino

Torino were unable to win a fourth consecutive match on Saturday evening as they were held to a 0-0 draw with Chievo on Saturday afternoon.

Walter Mazzarri made just one change, as Tomas Rincon returned from suspension and came straight back into the starting eleven at the expense of Joel Obi.

Nicolas Burdisso almost had an embarrassing moment, just days after his 37th birthday, as his back header almost looped over Salvatore Sirigu, but the former PSG goalkeeper was able to prevent an own goal.

At the other end, Cristian Ansaldi bamboozled the home defence and was unlucky to see his left footed shot rebound off the post. Andrea Belotti also had a great chance for the Granata, but the Toro captain dragged his shot wide of the target.

In the second half, Mattia Bani headed over the bar from a set piece as Chievo started to threaten the Toro goal. Fabrizio Cacciatore also managed to somehow blaze over the bar after Salvatore Sirigu failed to claim a cross.

In the dying minutes, Mattia Bani received a straight red card for a late challenge on substitute Kevin Bonifazi. However, Toro could not make the numerical advantage count and were forced to settle for a point.

Forza Toro
