Bologna 1-1 Torino

Torino came from behind to end the 2019/20 season with a 1-1 draw against Bologna on Sunday evening.

Moreno Longo gave Antonio Rosati a rare start in goal but the experienced goalkeeper was at fault for the opening goal.

Swedish midfielder Mattias Svanberg's low shot from just outside the area did enough to beat Rosati and give Bologna an 18th minute lead.

Former Bologna man Simone Verdi had Toro's best chance to equalise in the first half, but his shot was well saved by Lukasz Skorupski.

Toro did find an equaliser mid way through the second half, as Verdi's cross field ball was sensationally volleyed home by Simone Zaza.

Substitute Federico Santander almost scored a winning goal for the home side, but his shot went narrowly wide of the far post.

Youngster Christian Celesia came off the bench to make his Toro debut in injury time, and almost made an immediate impact but Andrea Belotti could not make a clean contact on his low cross.

Toro settled for a point and a 16th place finish in a season that started with such optimism but ended with disappointment.

Forza Toro
