Torino got their year off to a flyer on Sunday with a cracking 2-0 away victory versus Roma, with Andrea Belotti proving the differences between the sides with a goal scored in either half.

The first came in first-half injury time after he latched on to a through pass from Tomas Rincon. From there, he faced down the Roma defence before lashing a spectacular left-footed strike high into the top left corner, catching goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu out at the front post.

With the Giallorossi searching for an equaliser, the Italy international then took the game beyond them with his second goal, which was struck from the penalty spot.

He was a handful all game for Roma, winning half his duels, the majority of his aerial duels, as well as making four ball recoveries.
