Torino 4-1 Crotone

Torino won successive games for only the second time this season following a convincing 4-1 victory over Crotone.

Kevin Bonifazi made his first start of the season, whilst Adem Ljajic made his first start under Walter Mazzarri's management.

Toro took the lead after only sixteen minutes when captain Andrea Belotti found the net from a corner, despite Alex Cordaz saving his initial effort.

The Granata doubled their lead four minutes later as Iago Falque finished well from just outside the area.

Torino added a third goal ten minutes before half time, as Adem Ljajic's excellent free kick was diverted goal wards by Andrea Belotti.

Crotone should have had a goal back before half time, but Simy's close range header hit the bar.

With twenty minutes remaining, Andrea Belotti completed his hat trick following a cool finish after an assist by Iago Falque.

Toro were denied consecutive 4-0 victories in the dying seconds, as Nicolas Burdisso's missed interception allowed Davide Faraoni to score.

Forza Toro
