Torino holds Lazio in Serie A action

IANS  |  Rome 

Torino held mighty Lazio to a 1-1 draw in their Serie A clash at the Stadio Olimpico here.

Having won its two previous Serie A matches, Lazio conceded a goal three minutes into the first half stoppage time on Saturday off a penalty kick that forward Andrea Belotti successfully netted, reports Efe.

Two minutes after the one-hour mark, Serbian midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic drew his team level, making the most of a pass from Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva.

The last few minutes were intense, as two players were shown red cards over a four-minute stretch, with Lazio Montenegrin midfielder Adam Marusic being sent off first in the 86th minute and then Torino French midfielder Soualiho Meite at the end of the regular time.

After the draw, Lazio holds the fourth spot in the Serie A table with 32 points, while Torino sits in the ninth spot with 27 points.
