Bologna 2-2 Torino

Torino threw away a 2-0 lead as some dreadful defending cost the Granata a victory in Bologna on Sunday afternoon.

Lorenzo De Silvestri and Iago Falque returned to the starting eleven following injury, whilst Koffi Djidji was surprisingly preferred to Emiliano Moretti in defence.

Toro took the lead after fourteen minutes when Iago Falque scored a sensational goal from twenty-five yards out, despite seemingly being off balance after pressure from Filip Helander.

Soualiho Meite had a chance to double Torino's lead, but his curling effort went narrowly over the bar. 

However, ten minutes into the second half, Torino did get a second goal when Iago Falque dispossessed Adam Nagy and set up Daniele Baselli to score. 

However, the home side reduced the deficit just five minutes later when Federico Santander reacted quickest after Mitchell Dijks' header hit the post. 

Bologna then equalised thirteen minutes from time when Salvatore Sirigu's poor clearance was intercepted by Arturo Calabresi, who then broke through some weak Toro challenges to score. 

Toro were unable to find a winner, and were made to settle for a point which considering the performance in the first hour, was very disappointing.

Forza Toro
