Udinese 1-0 Torino

Torino's inconsistent start to the season continued as they fell to a 1-0 defeat to Udinese on Sunday afternoon.

New signings Diego Laxalt and Simone Verdi were once again named in the starting eleven, as Toro hoped to build on their promising performance against Napoli in their previous game.

Udinese made a bright start and could have taken the lead in the opening minute, but Ken Sema saw his low shot hit the post. The home side were continuing to create chances, and Mato Jajalo's was unfortunate to see his long range shot hit the other post.

On the stroke of half time, Udinese finally got their reward as Stefano Okaka headed home from close range.

Toro did improve in the second half, and an acrobatic volley from Andrea Belotti forced Juan Musso into a save. Iago Falque came off the bench and almost made an instant impact, but his deflected effort went narrowly wide of the target.

Andrea Belotti had one final chance to rescue a point for the Granata, but his shot went just wide of the post. However, it wasn't to be, and Toro have now lost four of their eight league games so far this season.

Forza Toro
