SPAL 1-1 Torino

Torino secured their Serie A status for next season as they clinched the point needed against already relegated SPAL on Sunday night.

Lecce's defeat against Bologna just before kick off meant that Toro knew a point would be enough to guarantee their survival.

Toro dominated the first half, but struggled to create clear chances, with Simone Zaza dragging his shot wide of the target.

The away side took the lead just before the hour mark in sensational fashion thanks to a left footed curling effort from Simone Verdi which gave debutant goalkeeper Demba Thiam absolutely no chance.

The Granata were then guilty of missing opportunities to double their lead, with both Simone Zaza and Verdi missing good chances. They were punished by these wasted chances as with ten minutes remaining substitute Marco D'Alessandro equalised after Soualiho Meite lost the ball on half way.

However, Moreno Longo was relatively content with the final result as he achieved his aim of keeping Toro in Serie A - although it has certainly not been convincing.

Forza Toro
