Torino awarded Padova win

Serie B outfit Torino have been awarded three points this afternoon after their 1-0 loss at Padova was transformed into a 3-0 win.

The Granata took on Padova last December and were losing 1-0 when the match was abandoned due to floodlight failure in the 75th minute.

Toro insisted that they should have been handed the win for the incident, but the League made the two teams play the remaining 15 minutes at a later date. There was no change to the scoreline.

The Turin giants appealed the result and have today seen their claims for a 3-0 victory granted as the sporting judges ruled that Padova were at fault for the failure.

Today’s verdict now sees Torino go back to the top of the table with a one-point advantage over Pescara.
