Torino 2-0 Südtirol

A much changed Torino team progressed to the last 16 of the Coppa Italia with a narrow 2-0 victory over Serie C side Südtirol.

Walter Mazzarri made ten changes from the team who beat Genoa in Serie A, with Simone Zaza the only player to keep his place.

Toro took the lead mid-way through the first half thanks to Roberto Soriano's low drive, that took a slight deflection to wrong-foot goalkeeper Daniel Offredi.

Torino failed to capitalise on their dominance in the second half, and were almost punished when the visitors had a goal wrongfully disallowed for offside.

However, that scare seemed to awaken the Granata who finally doubled their lead with ten minutes remaining through Simone Edera's nice finish.

Forza Toro
