Miranchuk makes the difference at Torino. In the last round, he scored the victorious Fiorentina, and this weekend he helped the team bounce back from 0-2 in the match with Empoli – he made an assist and a pre-goal pass.
Moreover, Alexey started the match on the bench. In the first half, “Empoli” played better and deservedly led – before the break, Luperto closed the cross from a corner. Miranchuk entered the field in the 55th minute, Torino began to play more cheerfully and began to create chances, but in the 70th he got the second into his own net (Rezvan Marin shot perfectly from the penalty area).
Only in the 82nd minute did everything work as it should: Miranchuk filed into the penalty area, Schürs slightly corrected the ball, and Ricci shot wide of the goalkeeper. So Alexey made a pre-goal pass.
After 3 minutes Miranchuk simply rolled out Sanabria, who put him into the corner from the penalty area and equalized – 2:2.
Torino really wanted to win, but in the last minute Miranchuk was unlucky: the midfielder gracefully twisted the ball into the far corner, but hit the post. It was the best moment of the Turin team.
• Miranchuk is one of the club’s top scorers with 4 goals (same for Radonjic, Vlašić and Sanabria) and second assist with 3 assists (same for Vlašić and Lazaro).
• Alexey reveals himself to Ivan Yurich. The coach praised the player after the victory over Fiorentina in the last round :
“I have only positive emotions for him. Alex is a special guy. He needs to be given the opportunity to express himself. It’s normal for these players to be a little unstable, but we’re happy with it.”
• Miranchuk’s good run kept Torino in 8th place in the table – if Empoli had lost, they would have overtaken Juric’s side. It will be difficult to get to 6th (Atalanta is 8 points clear), but it is still possible to cling to 7th.
