Napoli 0-0 Torino

Torino survived a first half onslaught as they somehow managed to hold Napoli to a 0-0 draw on Sunday evening.

Nicolas Nkoulou came back into the team in place of the injured Koffi Djidji whilst Alex Berenguer was surprisingly preferred to Iago Falque as the support to Andrea Belotti in attack.

Lorenzo Insigne had the first opportunity of the game but was denied by Salvatore Sirigu, whilst Arkadiusz Milik also had a great chance but put his effort wide of the target.

Napoli continued to create chances in the second half, with Sirigu twice denying Milik and Insigne hitting the post, but Toro were proving to be a bigger threat on the counter attack through the pace of Ola Aina.

Toro somehow managed to hold on and earn what could be a valuable point, whilst Napoli will wonder how they didn't manage to win the game.

Forza Toro
