Last Updated on 12/03/2023 by

In a heated match against Lecce under the warm Puglian sun, Torino prevailed 2-0, placing them on the periphery of the European spots.

Torino maintained their momentum giving coach Ivan Juric some encouraging signs after they rebounded from their challenging 4-2 Derby della Mole loss to Juventus at the end of last month with a strong 1-0 victory over Bologna.

Lazio and Atalanta discovered this season that Lecce is ever-resilient and capable of producing upsets, but they were unable to match the visitors’ level of play, leaving them with nothing at the end of a tense 90-minute match.

Following a clever and well-executed free kick, Wilfried Singo gave Torino the lead after just 20 minutes by latching onto an Aleksey Miranchuk floated ball and putting the ball past Wladimiro Falcone, making it 1-0.

After a fantastic run from Nemanja Radonjic, Juric’s team kept up the pressure, and it only took a few minutes for the visitors to double their lead. This time, it was Antonio Sanabria who could not miss from a short distance.

Following a heated altercation between the players and coaching staff of the two clubs just after the 30-minute mark, referee Juan Luca Sacchi issued several bookings and red cards to the coaching staff of both clubs.
