Moreno Longo's first game in charge of Torino ended in defeat as they lost 3-1 to Sampdoria despite taking the lead.
Armando Izzo and Sasa Lukic lukic returned to the side following suspension, whilst Lyanco was preferred to Bremer and Koffi Djidji in the back three.
The first half was an even affair, with Alex Berenguer having the best chance for the Granata, whilst Gaston Ramirez forced Salvatore Sirigu into making a save.
Early in the second half, Toro took the lead as Berenguer's pass found Simone Verdi, and the Summer signing finally scored his first goal for the club.
However, Sampdoria were level with twenty minutes remaining thanks to Gaston Ramirez's excellent free kick. Incredibly, five minutes later, the away side were ahead as Toro switched off from a throw in and the former Southampton man Ramirez was on hand to volley home.
The game was then over as a contest when Armando Izzo received his second red card in as many games for pulling back Fabio Quagliarella in the area. The former Toro man stepped up to take the penalty and powered it down the middle to secure all three points for Samp.
