Juan Iturbe nets wonder striker to rescue Torino
Last Updated: 29/04/17 11:40pm
A strike from substitute Juan Iturbe saw Torino secure a 1-1 draw against Sampdoria at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
The visitors went ahead in the 12th minute when Karol Linetty ran at the home defence and laid the ball to Patrik Schick, who whipped it past Joe Hart from just outside the box in superb fashion for his fourth goal in five matches.
Hart then made an excellent stop with his legs 10 minutes later to prevent Bruno Fernandes from making it 2-0.
Torino created several openings themselves which the likes of Adem Ljajic, Iago Falque and Lucas Boye failed to make the most of.
And it looked as if they would be left rue their profligacy until Iturbe fired home a fine leveller in the 78th minute, pouncing when Vasco Regini made a mess of an attempted clearance.
Torino and Sampdoria, who lost the services of Schick to injury early in the second half, remain ninth and 10th respectively.
