Torino 1-2 Parma

Torino's six game unbeaten record came to an end with a surprise 2-1 defeat against Parma on Saturday afternoon.

Toro made the worst possible start and were behind after only nine minutes, after a defensive mix up between Armando Izzo and Nicolas N'Koulou allowed Gervinho to score.

The Granata had a great chance to equalise, however Andrea Belotti put his close range effort over the bar. The away side then doubled their lead as Roberto Inglese finished a swift counter attack in fine style.

Torino reduced the deficit just before half time when Daniele Baselli fired home from outside the area, to give Toro hope of a comeback.

However, despite Walter Mazzarri throwing on Simone Zaza and Alex Berenguer in search of an equaliser, it was Parma who came closest to scoring again as Roberto Inglese hit the bar and the away side ultimately deserved victory against a below par Toro.

Forza Toro
