Season summary[edit]

In attempt to reborn, Torino bet on Brazilian playmaker Leo Junior.[1] On 18 November, a goal by Aldo Serena - who scored during injury time - brought the win in citizen derby.[2] A week later, "Toro" was knocked out by Hellas Verona that, due to this win, could topping the league.[3]

Whilst Hellas would eventually win title, Radice's side managed to get a second place useful to participate in UEFA Cup for 1985–86 season.[4]
