Torino draw with 9-man Fiorentina


 MILAN: Andrea Belotti netted a last-gasp goal to help relegation-threatened Torino draw with nine-man Fiorentina 1-1 at home in their Serie A match on Friday. Belotti slid in at the far post to redirect a cross from Simone Verdi in the 88th minute, after Franck Ribery scored from a tight angle for Fiorentina on Friday. Ribery finished off a give-and-go with Giacomo Bonaventura in the 68th, shortly after Gaetano Castrovilli was sent off for a last-man foul.

Then Nikola Milenkovic was sent off, too, following a clash with Belotti, who was shown only a yellow.

Both sides hit the woodwork in the first half.

Torino moved one point clear of the drop zone while Fiorentina was 12th. Agencies
