ROME — Lazio provisionally moved back within one point of the Serie A lead with a 2-1 comeback win at Torino on Tuesday.

Ciro Immobile and Marco Parolo scored second-half goals to cancel out an early penalty from Andrea Bellotti.

Chasing its first Italian league title in two decades, Lazio trailed eight-time defending champion Juventus by one point ahead of the Bianconeri’s game at relegation-threatened Genoa later.

A handball from Immobile led to Bellotti’s penalty and means the striker will miss Saturday’s game against AC Milan with a suspension.

But Immobile made up for his error with an expert finish shortly after the break to raise his total to 29 goals in 29 games — on pace to break Gonzalo Higuain’s Serie A record of 36 goals in 2015-16.

Immobile also matched his personal best for a Serie A season set two years ago.

Parolo scored the winner with a deflected shot from just beyond the area.

It was the second straight comeback win for Lazio, having also rallied past Fiorentina 2-1.
