Nigerian midfielder Joel Obi made it two goals in his last two Serie A games for Torino who thrashed visiting 10-man Benevento 3-0 on Sunday.
Obi was also on target last Sunday when Torino held Sassuolo to a 1-1 away draw in the league.
Torino got off to the perfect start as Iago Falque opened scoring in the third minute.
In the 33rd minute, Benevento had a player sent off as Vid Belec got his matching orders.
Torino took advantage and doubled their lead in the 40th minute through Mbaye Niang.
And on the stroke of halftime, Obi made it 3-0 in favour of Torino.
The win took Torino to ninth on 32 points in the Serie A standings.
Obi has now scored four goals in 14 league appearances for Torino so far this campaign.
