Belotti brace in Torino friendly

Andrea Belotti scored twice as Torino beat Serie C outfit Pro Patria 3-2 in a friendly ahead of their Europa League preliminary round.

The Granata will begin their competitive season next week against either Debrecen or Kukesi on July 25.

Belotti took centre-stage with a brace, although Pro Patria had turned it around to take the lead just before half-time.

Cristian Ansaldi got the equaliser after the break, then Belotti completed his double from Alex Berenguer’s assist.

Simone Zaza looked a long way off form and missed several good chances, including one against the crossbar.

Torino: Sirigu (Rosati 72); Izzo, Nkoulou, Bremer (Djidji 72); De Silvestri, Baselli (Millico 81), Meité, Ansaldi; Iago Falque (Lukic 72), Belotti, Berenguer (Zaza 61)
