It took only five minutes to break the deadlock, when Ciro Immobile used his arm to load a free kick on the header of Nicolas Nkoulou, allowing Andrea Belotti to score. The yellow card means Immobile is banned versus Milan for the next match, making matters worse.

Immobile would have covered for his mistake by balancing on 22 minutes, but after springing the offside trap, he only clipped Salvatore Sirigu on the one-on-one crossbar.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has already exploded from a good place, and Felipe Caicedo was booked and will also be suspended in Milan for the match.

After a quick one-two to burst into the box, Immobile fired off target again while Sirigu took the sting out of a Parolo header and rained crosses into the box at the end of a long attacking Lazio move.

Immobile had the equaliser at the start of the second half, this time running through a pass to a Luis Alberto and toe-pocking it into the far bottom corner, misfooting Sirigu.

In the final analysis, a glimpse of Parolo from the edge of the field took a dramatic deflection off Bremer to midfoot the goalkeeper at the near post and completely turn the game around.

Correa ‘s low cross-shot raced across the front of the goal all the way, with Sirigu having enough to turn it back, while Correa’s Koffi Djidji launched himself in the path of another Correa attempt.

Torino finally put some emphasis on the last five minutes, but it was too small, too late, and Lazio picked up all three points again from a losing position.
