After a goalless first half, two goals in two minutes from Iago Falque and Sasa Lukic in the second half gave Torino a 2-0 lead, but Ciro Immobile reduced the deficit for Lazio six minutes after the hour mark.

Lorenzo Silvestri’s 80th minute strike ensured Torino ended the season on a winning note.

Aina who is currently on a season loan deal from Chelsea is expected to return to Stamford Bridge ahead of next season. He scored one goal and provided two assists during the season.
