Watch: Zaza grabs first Torino home win of season against Sassuolo

Simone Zaza scored twice, including a dramatic late winner, as Torino came from two goals down to beat Sassuolo 3-2 on Wednesday and secure their first home Serie A victory of the season.

Captain Andrea Belotti returned for the game, one of two postponed because of a coronavirus outbreak at the Turin club.

Domenico Berardi scored twice in the first half for eighth-placed Sassuolo, the Italian forward lashing home from Francesco Caputo’s knock-down on six minutes and adding a second just before the break.

But Zaza came off the bench in the 72nd minute to inspire struggling Torino to their first home win since July, finding the net five minutes later by drilling in after Antonio Sanabria nodded the ball on.

Juventus loanee Rolando Mandragora pulled the hosts level with three minutes to go, bundling in a rebound, with Zaza nodding in to complete the comeback two minutes into injury time.

Torino move out of the relegation zone and into 17th position, with a game in hand.

Sassuolo are 11 points off the European berths.
