Torino finished the match with 10 men after Koffi Djidji was sent off, as Venezia’s Mattia Aramu cancelled out Josip Brekalo’s opener from the penalty spot.

Venezia hosted Torino at the Stadio Penzo to conclude Serie A Week 6 on Monday night, when the two sides shared the spoils.

The hosts started the match well when David Okereke came close to scoring the opener and Paolo Zanetti’s men continued to push for the opener.

Domen Crnigoj’s header went just over the crossbar after 15 minutes and the Granata eventually responded with an effort from Antonio Sanabria.

After 24 minutes, Johnsen thought he had sent the hosts in the lead, but the Venezia forward’s goal was eventually ruled offside by VAR.

Chelsea loanee Ethan Ampadu made his Venezia debut when he replaced Antonio Vacca after 38 minutes.

Karol Linetty tested Niki Maepaa in the Venezia goal before the break, but neither side found a way to break the deadlock.

The second half was as eventful, when Torino grabbed the lead through a great attack down the right, when Wilfried Singo found Josip Brekalo at eight yards.

The attacking midfielder made no mistakes and gave the visitors the lead after 56 minutes.

Torino seemed in control for a period after taking the lead, but then Koffi Djidji went through Okereke from the back and referee Lorenzo Maggioni had no other option but to send the Granata defender off and award the home side a penalty.

Vanja Milinkovic-Savic was close to saving the effort from the spot, but Mattia Aramu made sure Venezia claimed their first point at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo in 2021-22.

Torino eventually played 21 minutes 10 men, as Maggioni added eight minutes of stoppages and big chances at both ends followed before the final whistle.

The Granata are unbeaten in four games, while Venezia picked up their fourth point, currently tied with Spezia at 17th in Serie A.
