Torino 3-1 Brescia

Torino boosted their hopes of avoiding relegation by coming from behind to beat Brescia on Wednesday evening.

Moreno Longo named an attacking line up, with Simone Zaza partnering Andrea Belotti in attack, with Simone Verdi providing support for the duo.

Toro made a bright start, and were unlucky to see Verdi's effort from just outside the area rebound off the bar.

However, they then went behind in comical fashion, as a hopeful long ball by Birkir Bjarnason rebounded off Soualiho Meite and fell perfectly into the path of Ernesto Torregrossa who finished well.

Toro seemed shell shocked at going behind, and the away side could have made it 2-0 just before half time, but Torregrossa headed wide.

The Granata needed a big second half, and they made the perfect start just three minutes into the restart. Simone Verdi's volley was heading off target before it took a deflection off Ales Mateju and creeped into Jesse Joronen's near post.

Just before the hour mark, Toro took the lead as Simone Verdi's blocked effort fell perfectly into the path of Andrea Belotti who headed home.

The Granata sealed a much needed victory in the final five minutes, as Meite's long range shot was parried by Joronen and Simone Zaza was on hand to score.

Forza Toro
