Torino has two wins in a row
Ivan Juric's team started the season with a cup game against Palermo. The Turin side had no problem defeating their lower-league rival at home, scoring three unanswered goals. Lukic, Radonjic, and Pellegri were among the scorers. Then, in the first round of the new national championship, Torino went on the road to face Monza, a newcomer to Serie A. The Bulls also got a positive outcome, winning 2-1. Sanabria and Miranchuk scored, with the latter playing his first game for the new team. Nikola Vlasic also made his debut for Torino in the match against Monza, coming on from the bench to replace Miranchuk.
Lazio got a tough win
As early as 6 minutes into the season's opening match against Bologna, Lazio was reduced to ten men after Luis Maximiano, a goalkeeper from Spanish Granada who joined the team in the off-season, was sent off. Another newcomer, Russian-Italian goalkeeper Ivan Provedel of Spezia, appeared on the field. Lazio conceded midway through the first half, but toward its end, the referee tied the game by suspending Bologna defender Adama Soumaoro. In the second half, in a 10-on-10 format, Lazio outclassed their opponents in every way, scoring two unanswered goals – De Silvestri (OG) and Immobile. Lazio secured a hard-fought 2-1 win.
