Result: Torino fightback stuns Catania

Alexander Farnerud and Ciro Immobile score late goals to help Torino beat Catania 2-1 in their Serie A clash.

Torino came from behind with two late goals earning them a 2-1 victory in their Serie A clash with bottom-of-the-league Catania this afternoon.

The hosts made the perfect start and took the lead in the second minute when Gonzalo Bergessio latched onto Pablo Barrientos's pass and fired a strike into the corner past Daniele Padelli.

After struggling to create any chances in the first half, Torino almost equalised after the break when Ciro Immobile met Omar El Kaddouri's cross, but he saw his header kept out by Mariano Andujar.

Immobile came close again minutes later, but his low strike from inside the box was turned around the post by the keeper.

The hosts had an opportunity to double the lead soon after when Francesco Lodi's effort was saved by Padelli.

With 11 minutes of the match left to play, Torino drew level. El Kaddouri picked out the run of Alexander Farnerud, and the Swedish midfielder slotted the ball past Andujar.

Four minutes later the visitors grabbed a second, as Immobile latched onto Riccardo Meggiorini's flicked header before drilling a low effort into the corner.

In the closing stages Mariano Izco had a chance for the home side but his header was saved by Padelli, as Torino held on to claim all three points.
