Mourinho, already angry about a first-half decision not to allow his side a penalty for a handball that the VAR ruled was involuntary, was sent off a minute before stoppage time for protesting, with visitors Torino leading 1-0.

Three minutes later, Roma’s Andrea Belotti hit the post with a penalty awarded for a foul by Koffi Djidji on Paulo Dybala, who was returning from a thigh injury that had kept him out for a month.

Matic saved a point for Roma four minutes into stoppage time with a long shot from outside the box.

Karol Linetty, left out of the Polish World Cup squad bound for Qatar, had scored for Torino in the 55th minute, jumping for Wilfried Singo’s cross and heading into the net.

Roma are in seventh place with 27 points after 15 games as the league goes into the World Cup break. Torino are on ninth with 21 points.
