Torino 3-0 Genoa

Torino all but secured their Serie A status with a vital 3-0 victory over Genoa at the Stadio Grande Torino on Thursday evening.

Moreno Longo once again chose to line up with Simone Zaza and Andrea Belotti up front, with Simone Verdi offering support in a 3-4-1-2 formation.

The away started the better, and Salvatore Sirigu made a good save to deny Andrea Pinamonti from Iago Falque's cross.

However, just as he had done in the reverse fixture, Bremer headed Toro into the lead, this time from Simone Verdi's inswinging corner.

At the start of the second half, Toro were once again thankful for Sirigu, as the Italian international made three excellent saves in quick succession to deny Antonio Sanabria, Lasse Schöne and Andrea Pinamonti.

Toro then doubled their lead with fifteen minutes remaining, as excellent work from Andrea Belotti then allowed substitute Sasa Lukic to curl home from outside the area.

There was still time for the Torino captain to score in a seventh consecutive game, as Belotti fired a left footed rocket past Mattia Perin to seal all three points for the Granata.

Forza Toro
