Sassuolo 1-1 Torino

Torino had an injury time winner disallowed by VAR after conceding a late equaliser themselves in a 1-1 draw away to Sassuolo on Saturday afternoon.

Salvador Ichazo started in place of the injured Salvatore Sirigu, whilst Iago Falque was only fit enough for a place on the bench, so Simone Zaza retained his place up front.

It was Simone Zaza who had the best chance of the first half for Toro, as he was put through on goal by Andrea Belotti, but he was denied by home keeper Andrea Consigli.

At the other end, Domenico Berardi somehow managed to miss from close range when it appeared easier to score.

Torino took the lead ten minutes into the second half when Zaza returned the favour and played in Andrea Belotti who finished well from a difficult angle.

However, Sassuolo equalised in injury time as Toro failed to clear a corner, and Enrico Brignola who took the set piece, was able to ghost in at the far post to head home.

The drama was not yet over though, as Toro thought they had claimed a late winning goal after Iago Falque tapped in Ola Aina's low cross, but after an agonising wait and VAR referral it was disallowed due to Aina being offside.

Forza Toro
