Simone Zaza responded with a brace in the 2-2 draw between Benevento and Torino, an entertaining match that included three disallowed goals.

Simone Zaza first responded with a header to pull Toro one back, before he had a goal disallowed for a handball in the build-up and then Andrea Belotti’s attempt was ruled out for offside.

The home side started the match best, and in the initial minutes Kamil Glik had a goal disallowed for handball before Nicolas Viola scored on his return to action from the penalty spot after 32 minutes.

Gianluca Lapadula then added a second four minutes into the second half, when his half-volley hit a Torino defender and found the near corner behind Salvatore Sirigu.

In stoppages, Zaza appeared again to slide home a through ball from Belotti and help Davide Nicola to a point in his first game in charge.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
