10-man Catania draws 0-0 with Torino in Serie A
ROME (AP) -Ten-man Catania played to a 0-0 draw with Torino on Saturday as Serie A resumed after its holiday break.
Midfielder Francesco Lodi was sent off with a direct red card in the 13th minute at Catania's Massimino stadium after reacting violently to physical contact by taking a swipe at an opponent.
Catania was awarded a penalty in the 23rd but forward Gonzalo Bergessio hit the crossbar with his spot kick.
Catania coach Rolando Maran was also sent off, for protests in the 84th.
Still, Catania moved into a tie with Parma for eighth place, one point behind AC Milan, which faces Siena on Sunday.
Torino is 13th, five points clear of the relegation zone, with a one-point penalty for match-fixing.
Later, second-place Lazio was hosting Cagliari, which has lost five straight.
In Sunday's other matches, Serie A leader Juventus hosts Sampdoria, Inter Milan visits Udinese, Fiorentina faces Pescara and Roma is at Napoli.
