Chelsea Loanee Aina Remains Hot In Italy After First-Ever Assist In Europe's Top Five LeaguesPublished: November 05, 2018
Ola Aina was credited with an assist in Torino's impressive 4-1 road win against Sampdoria at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris (Genova) on Sunday.
With Torino leading 2-0 thanks to a brace from Andrea Belotti, Iago Falque joined in on the act ten minutes into the second half with a left-footed strike from inside the area off an assist from the Nigeria international at the back post.
Aina would have provided another assist after finding space to move into, shortly after Sampdoria had reduced the deficit.
Belotti struck powerfully and cleanly on the volley after a brilliant cross from the Chelsea loanee but a top drawer save by goalkeeper Emil Audero denied the number nine.
With 16 appearances under his belt for both Torino and Chelsea's first team, Aina's assist against the Blucerchiati was his first career assist playing in Europe's top five leagues.
Against Sampdoria, the 22-year-old made three key passes which was a game-high and completed 76.2 percent of his passes, made four tackles and three interceptions.
