Milan held by Torino

Adil Rami scored a second half goal to help salvage a precious point for Milan as they played to a 1-1 draw against Torino at the San Siro Stadium on Saturday evening.

Daniele Padelli put out a great display in goals for the Granata to deny the Diavoli of a win, while Ciro Immobile got on the scoresheet for the visitors.

The post-Massiliano Allegri era had so far been a success under Clarence Seedorf, with two domestic wins in his first two league games in charge.

Milan were however without Mario Balotelli, who had scored in the games the Dutchman had been in charge of, due to suspension while new arrival Michael Essien started from the bench.

Giampaolo Pazzini nearly opened the scoring for the Rossoneri 90 seconds into the game when his glancing header flicked just wide of the near post.

But it was Torino who grabbed the lead after 17 minutes of play. Danielel Bonera couldn’t close down Ciro Immobile’s run from a gathered looping ball near the half-way line and he burst into the 120yard area before slotting a ball past Christian Abbiati.

It could have been 1-1 a minute later if it wasn’t for Daniele Padelli making a miraculous save off the line. Robinho saw his shot deflected off a Torino defender and it fell straight in the path of Pazzini who acrobatically struck it with his back towards goal only to see it pushed off the line by the ‘keeper.

Alexander Fernarud came close to scoring with his head just before the half hour mark, while Sulley Muntari’s shot from outside the box was smothered by Padelli.

Milan came back at the break with an almost instant goal from Adil Rami which helped secure a 1-1 draw and a crucial point for the Rossoneri.

Other results:

Two games kicked-off at 19h00 (CAT) on Saturday evening and it saw Udinese pair up alongside Bologna, while Fiorentina were away to Cagliari.

The Sardinians undoubtedly secured the surprise result of the evening after they defeated an in form Fiorentina side 1-0 at the Sant’Elia Stadium.

The Viola gave Anderson his first start after the move from Manchester United, but missed Mario Gomez, Giuseppe Rossi, Nenad Tomovic and Massimo Ambrosini and it evidently had an impact on the result.

There were few scoring opportunities in the first half, but Cagliari were awarded a penalty. Marco Sau was tripped in the box and it was Mauricio Pinilla who converted from six-yards to secure a crucial win.

Meanwhile, across in Bologna it was Francesco Giudolin’s side who ended their four-match winless run with a 2-0 victory over the Rossoblu.

Udinese were handed a penalty after 15 minutes when Andrea Lazzari was nudged from behind by Michele Pazienza. Naturally it was Antonio Di Natale who stood up and fired a low ball into the bottom corner to make it 1-0.

The score looked destined to end in narrow favour of the Zebrette but a 92nd minute goal by Nico Lopez made the score more flattering than it originally suggested.
