Parma and Torino closed the 6th week of the Italian Serie A with a 3-2 score for the home team, a win earned late in the second half. 

The score was opened quickly after the referee’s whistle, a goal scored by the Swedish international Dejan Kulusevski, with Gervinho assisting him in front of the open goal. Torino managed to level the score just 10 minutes later through Christian Ansaldi. The defender out-jumped the defense and scored past Luigi Sepe. 

Torino’s defender Brener managed to receive 2 yellow cards in 8 minutes, after he touched the ball with his hand in the penalty box. The referee awarded a penalty for Parma after the consultations with the VAR system. Gervinho’s penalty was saved by Salvatore Sirigu in the 30th minute. 

Shortly before half-time, another penalty was given, this time for the visitors and again rewarded after the VAR replay. Andrea Belotti scored past Sepe and giving his team the lead with 10 men on the field. Just 2 minutes later, Andreas Cornelius leveled the score for Parma, with Dejan Kulusevski providing the assist. 

In the second half, Parma pushed Torino in their own half and that paid off late in the 88th minute when Roberto Inglese scored for 3-2.
