Brescia, which played out a scoreless draw in Turin last Wednesday, took a 34th minute lead Sunday through Davide Possanzini before strike partner Andrea Caracciolo made it 2-0 from the penalty spot in the 67th.

Torino had defender Danilo D'Ambrosio sent off two minutes later, but still managed to pull a goal back through substitute Rachid Arma in the 86th. It was reduced to nine men in the fourth minute of added time after Apimah Barusso was shown a red card.

Brescia, back after a five-year absence, will join Lecce and Cesena in Italy's top flight next season.
