It is a fanfare opening for the club of the 2017 African Champion of Nations, Nicolas Nkoulou. This Sunday at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Torino took the measure of its host. And it is not every day that Rome lets itself be defeated by Torino. The host had a chance to reach the Serie A podium, especially since the visitors had a bad deal in the last game before the winter break by losing to SPAL. Nicolas Nkoulou was well on duty and intended to do everything possible to honor the colors of his club.
TheAS Rome hoped to chain a sixth game without defeat. The story was a little different, under the combined effect of an uninspired Roma and a great-looking Andrea Belotti.
In the first act stoppages, Rincon served Belotti in the box. The striker struck a heavy punch and opened the score (0-1, 45 + 2). Torino's goalscorer scored twice at the end of the game by converting a penalty (0-2, 86e). Thanks to its seventh success of the season, the Turin team climbed to ninth place in the standings.
