Brescia 0-4 Torino

Torino secured their first three points since September as they thumped Brescia 4-0 on Saturday afternoon.

Toro made a bright start and were awarded a slightly controversial penalty when Andrea Cistana was adjudged to have handled Simone Verdi's free kick. Andrea Belotti stepped up and made no mistake to give the Granata the lead.

Incredibly, Toro were awarded another penalty for handball, which seemed a lot more clear cut but did need a VAR consultation after Ales Mateju handled Belotti's shot. The Torino captain stepped up and once again converted to doubled Torino's lead.

The home side were then reduced to ten men when Ales Mateju received a second yellow card for a foul on Belotti.

However, despite the man disadvantage, Brescia started the second half well and could have reduced the deficit but Salvatore Sirigu made an excellent double save to first deny Florian AyĆ© and then Nikolas Spalek.

However, Alex Berenguer came on as substitute for Toro and the Spaniard sealed the three points for the Granata with a smart turn and finish. The former Osasuna man then added a fourth on the counter attack as Toro claimed a much needed victory.

Forza Toro
