Sampdoria 1-0 Torino

Torino's disappointing run of form continued as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against previously winless Sampdoria on Sunday evening.

Walter Mazzarri resisted the temptation to make wholesale changes from the disappointing defeat against Lecce, although Lyanco, Bremer and Simone Zaza did come into the eleven.

Sampdoria made a bright start, in contrast to the miserable weather in Genoa as both Fabio Depaoli and Manolo Gabbiadini had shots on goal inside the opening minute.

However, it took until the second half for the first real chance of the game, as ex Southampton striker Manolo Gabbiadini gave the home side the lead. However, there was some controversy surrounding the goal as both Ola Aina and Lyanco felt they had been fouled in the build up.

The Granata were then thankful for Salvatore Sirigu who made good saves to deny both Ronaldo Vieira and Albin Ekdal.

Toro were struggling to create chances against a resolute Sampdoria defence, but Simone Zaza did force Emil Audero into making a save.

Despite the introduction of summer signings Diego Laxalt and Simone Verdi from the bench, Toro could not find an equaliser and fell to a second consecutive defeat.

Forza Toro
