AC Milan 3-2 Torino

Carlos Bacca
Carlos Bacca scored 21 goals for AC Milan last season

Striker Carlos Bacca scored a hat-trick as AC Milan opened their Serie A season with a dramatic win over Torino.

The 29-year-old, who was linked with a move to West Ham in the summer, gave the hosts the lead before the break only for Andrea Belotti to equalise.

Bacca scored with a low strike and completed his treble with a penalty.

Daniele Baselli's late goal made it 3-2 before home keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma saved Belotti's injury-time penalty after Gabriel Paletta was sent off.
