Napoli 2-2 Torino

Torino twice came from behind to earn an impressive point against Napoli at the San Paolo on Sunday afternoon.

Andrea Belotti started on the bench as M'Baye Niang was preferred up front, whilst Kevin Bonifazi replaced the suspended Emiliano Moretti in defence.

Napoli took the lead in farcical circumstances after twenty five minutes, as Nicolas Burdisso lingered on the ball in his own area, and was caught in possession by Dries Mertens who ended his long goal drought to score.

Toro equalised against the run of play ten minutes into the second half, as Daniele Baselli's shot took a big deflection and went past Pepe Reina in the Napoli goal.

The home side regained the lead with less than twenty minutes remaining as substitute Marek Hamsik thumped home a volley from just outside the area.

However, Adem Ljajic's cross was headed home by Lorenzo De Silvestri to earn Toro an unlikely point.

Forza Toro
