The club claimed a first Serie A victory over AC Milan in 18 years on Sunday as the race for Champions League places in Italy took a dramatic twist.

Goals from Andrea Belotti and Alex Berenguer gave Torino the three points in the game which also saw Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli sent-off late on.

Torino moved to sixth place in the table, two points behind Roma who occupy the fourth and final Champions League qualifying spot. Defeat for Milan means that they have slipped to seventh, currently out even the Europa League sports.

Belotti put Torino in front from the penalty spot in the 58th minutes after a foul by Milan’s Ivory Coast midfielder Franck Kessie on Armando Izzo. Spanish winger Berenguer added the second after 69 minutes with a right-foot shot from the side of the penalty area.
