TURIN, Italy – Parma scored two early goals to defeat host Torino 2-1 on Saturday at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino and secure its fifth win of the Italian-league season.
Ivorian forward Gervinho got Parma on the scoreboard just nine minutes into the Serie A Matchday 12 contest, while Italian striker Roberto Inglese doubled the visitors’ lead in the 25th minute thanks to an assist by defender Riccardo Gagliolo.
Torino midfielder Daniele Baselli pulled one back for the hosts eight minutes before the start of first-half stoppage time.
A long scoring drought then ensued until the final whistle.
Parma (17 points) has provisionally moved into the ninth spot in the standings with the win, while eighth-placed Torino has an equal number of points but a better goal differential.
