Torino 1-0 Udinese

Torino claimed their first victory since January with a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Udinese on Tuesday evening.

Moreno Longo named the same starting eleven who drew with Parma in their first game since the restart, but were almost behind early on when Jens Stryger Larsen hit the post.

However, Toro did take the lead after sixteen minutes when Simone Edera set up Andrea Belotti - who made amends for his missed penalty in the previous match by firing home.

Udinese were then denied an equaliser when Salvatore Sirigu made a sensational save to deny Seko Fofana's strike from outside the area. Sirigu was once again at his best to make an excellent save from Sebastien De Maio at close range.

Despite a flurry of corners by Udinese in the 2nd half, the away side struggled to create any meaningful chances after the break. In fact, it was Toro who came closest to scoring but this time Belotti was denied by Juan Musso.
