Torino had gone six games without a win in the League before Saturday’s game Brescia and needed a response after last weekend’s 1-0 Derby della Mole defeat to Juventus at the Olympic Grande Stadium.

Walter Mazzarri’s men also had the small problem of a leaky defence, that had conceded 10 goals in six league games.

 

So, on Saturday II Toro bulldozed their way to a convincing 4-0 hammering of Brescia to pick up their first away victory since September and second clean sheet this season.

 

Nigeria International Ola Aina retained his place following his involvement last week, and played all 90 minutes scoring an impressive 7.4 rating per whoscored.com.

But, the Defender wasn’t the star of the occasion, that honor went to Forward Andrea Belotti, who netted a brace – both from the penalty spot.

 

The visitors started the onslaught early in the game with both of Belotti’s goals coming in the 17th and 26th minutes.

 

In the second half, they continued where they stopped as Alex Berengue grabbed his brace (75′,80′) to complete the rout.

 

Torino are now 11th in the table with 14 points from 12 games.
