Iago Falque's brace handed Joe Hart's Torino a home victory over Roma for the first time since 1990 as Sinisa Mihajlovic's side prevailed 3-1 in Serie A.

Falque left Roma in the summer for a season-long loan deal with Torino, and wasted little time in making his parent club pay for farming him out.

Fit-again Torino hitman Andrea Belotti struck his fifth league goal of the campaign on his first start since a thigh problem, while Francesco Totti converted a penalty for Roma - two days shy of his 40th birthday.

England stopper Hart revelled in thwarting former Manchester City team-mate Edin Dzeko at every turn at the Stadio Olimpico as Torino claimed their second win of the league campaign.

Belotti needed just eight minutes to find the net in his first league start since August. The 22-year-old nodded home at the far post after a neat cross from Joel Obi, with Arsenal loan keeper Wojciech Szczesny unable to stop the accurate header.

Dzeko then scuffed wide from point-blank range, before drawing a smart save from ex-Manchester City team-mate Hart before the break.

Half-time replacement Totti toasted the advent of his 40th birthday on Tuesday by coolly converting, halving Roma's deficit.

Just as Roma set about chasing an equaliser however, Torino struck again, this time benefiting from a sizeable slice of luck.

Tottenham loanee Federico Fazio proved the hapless stooge as Falque's effort looped off the defender's leg and into the net, ensuring Torino eased home.
