Lazio came from behind to beat Torino two – one and close the gap at the top of Serie A to just one point behind Juventus.

Simone Inzaghi’s Lazio made hard work of Torino but eventually overcame their resilient hosts to close the gap on Juventus at the top of Serie A to just one point.

Lazio gave away a penalty in the fifth minute, that Andrea Belotti converted to give Torino the lead.

The Rome based side had plenty of the ball and plenty of opportunities. But Inzaghi’s side could not convert any of their dominance to an all-important goal.

That was until three minutes after the restart when none other than the league’s top scorer Ciro Immobile found the back of the net.

It was not until the 72nd minute that the all-important winner was scored.

Immobile was at the heart of Lazio’s best work again. This time turning provider for Marco Parolo.
