Torino 3-0 Empoli

Torino produced one of their most convincing performances of the season on Boxing Day as they beat Empoli 3-0 at the Stadio Grande Torino.

As expected Iago Falque, Andrea Belotti and Simone Zaza all started in attack, whilst Lorenzo De Silvestri came back into the starting eleven.

Andrea Belotti came closest to giving Toro the lead, but first he was denied by goalkeeper Ivan Provedel and then he was denied by the post.

However, on the stroke of half time, Torino got the goal they deserved when Nicolas N'Koulou headed home from a corner.

The Granata doubled their lead four minutes into the second half when Lorenzo De Silvestri fired into the top corner from outside the area with his weaker left foot.

Torino then wrapped up the points thanks to another goal from outside the area, this time it was Iago Falque who fired a low drive into the net from distance.

Forza Toro
