An equalizer in Lorenzo Insigne’s time compensation brought Napoli a 1-1 draw at home to fighting Torino on Wednesday as they broke a two-game losing streak in Serie A.
After an inconspicuous first half, the home side wasted a decent chance early in the second when they were given a free kick in central position, but Insigne’s tame shot was pleasantly resolved by Salvatore Sirigu.

The visitors took the shocking lead when a well-executed corner found Armando Izza on the other side of the penalty area and sent the ball past Alex Meret into the net.
When Napoli rushed forward looking for an equalizer, Piotr Zielinski took a shot on the clock, and his header in the 79th minute went straight to Sirigu for an easy save.
Torino seemed to be heading towards their only second win of the season until Zielinski picked up the Insigne by adding deep in stoppage time. The Insigne hit home brilliantly and took away a well-deserved point from Napoli.
The result leaves Torino at the bottom of the table with eight points after 14 games, while Napoli is fifth with 25 points, nine behind the leading AC Milan, which beat Lazio 3: 2.
