Torino 1-1 Parma

Torino ended their run of six consecutive defeats by earning a point against Parma, but were left to rue a number of chances, including a missed penalty.

Moreno Longo lined Toro up in a 4-4-2 formation, and the Granata made the perfect start after only fifteen minutes when Nicolas Nkoulou headed home Alex Berenguer's corner.

The Cameroonian defender then paid tribute to George Floyd in his poignant celebration following the goal.

However, on the half hour mark, the away side were level thanks to Juraj Kucka's powerful strike, although Salvatore Sirigu would have been disappointed not to save it.

In the opening stages of the second half, Luigi Sepe made an excellent save to deny Simone Zaza from close range, but Toro were then awarded a penalty when Simone Edera was fouled.

However, Sepe was the hero once again, as he made a good save to deny Andrea Belotti from the penalty spot.

The Granata still had another excellent chance to claim all three points, with substitute Ola Aina crossing for Simone Edera, but the youngster somehow missed the target with a free header and it ended level.

Forza Toro
