Torino 3-0 Debrecen

Torino will take a commanding 3-0 lead to Hungary after a convincing first leg performance against Debrecen on Thursday night.

Toro should have taken the lead within the opening five minutes, but Bremer was unable to make contact with Andrea Belotti's cross. However, the Toro captain then won his side a penalty when he was upended in the area by Debrecen keeper Sandor Nagy.

Belotti stepped up himself and thumped home the penalty to score Torino's first European goal in four years. The Granata doubled their lead in fortuitous fashion just before half time when Cristian Ansaldi's miscued cross somehow made its way past Nagy and into the Debrecen goal.

Torino had chances to extend their lead in the second half, with Spanish winger Alex Berenguer twice going close. However, in injury time, Torino finally scored a third goal as substitute Simone Zaza headed home from a corner.

Forza Toro
