Torino 5-1 Bologna

Andrea Belotti celebrated his first Italy call-up with a hat-trick to help Torino to a crushing 5-1 win against Bologna.
The 22-year-old, who missed an injury-time penalty as Torino lost 3-2 to AC Milan last weekend, also saw one saved in the closing stages of this game, but there was still time for him to complete his treble.
Belotti grabbed a first-half double, the opener with his head and the second a close-range strike, either side of a fine solo goal from Bologna forward Saphir Taider.
Josef Martinez added a third for the home side in the 53rd minute with a well-taken far-post finish and Daniele Baselli slotted in a late fourth before Belotti saw his penalty saved by Antonio Mirante.
Unaffected, the youngster did manage to complete his hat-trick in the 88th minute with a simple tap-in to seal Torino's first win of the season.
