Boško Janković leads Genoa to victory past Torino

Quite possibly doubt will be cast aside now as after today’s brilliant performance, Boško Janković proved he is worthy of being a fixture in the starting grid. At twenty-four years of age the Serbian international displays a textbook two-way play, high work-rate as well as a creative flourish and displayed each these attributes to the letter leading Genoa to a 3-0 victory over Torino. As the temperature dipped at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, the Rossoblu took the lead eighteen minutes in as Giuseppe Biava charged into the box to aggressively head in Ivan Jurić’s corner. Lusting for goals, Genoa answered the call as a few minutes after the break Giuseppe Sculli sent a cross for the ex-Crvena zvezda man Boško Janković to which he sent past Torino ‘keeper Matteo Sereni with resolve. With the two goal margin, Genoa wisely looked to lock down the match, bringing in Anthony Vanden Borre for Rubén Olivera on the hour and for the most part nullified Torino’s opportunities. However with six minutes remaining Thiago Motta added the third of the afternoon to bring the match to its final 3-0 scoreline.

With the victory, Genoa levels itself with fourth-place Fiorentina at thirty points. They return to action against Inter in the Coppa Italia before returning to Serie A play against Lecce next Sunday.
