An added-time penalty from substitute Fabio Quagliarella proved decisive as Torino FC snatched a 1-0 win at home against FC København.
Torino were hosting their first European group game in 20 years but began like experienced campaigners. Josef Martínez was centimetres from putting a scoring touch on a Matteo Darmian cross, then the same man scuffed wide from a Marco Benassi delivery.
Emiliano Moretti had the golden chance of the half on 22 minutes, rattling the crossbar with a powerful header from point-blank range after Kamik Glik knocked on a corner.
Cristian Molinaro forced a save out of Stephan Andersen before København came close to snatching a half-time lead when Andreas Cornelius nodded inches wide at a corner.
Torino's dominance continued after the interval. Martínez forced a smart near-post stop from Andersen, and although Alexander Kacaniklic came close to finding the bottom-right corner with a skidding effort, FCK never looked like being the ones to break the deadlock.
Torino looked menacing until the last, and the home side's endeavour finally paid off in added time as a hopeful ball was clipped into the box and substitute Quagliarella was hauled to the ground. The experienced Italian international showed extraordinary composure to rifle the resulting spot-kick inside the left upright to win the match.
