The Nerazzurri lost top spot in the table with a 2-2 draw with Bologna before the international break. Accordingly, their only goal is to win in Torino’s away trip, especially when the home team does not have the services of Duvan Zapata, Yann Karamoh, Koffi Djidji, Alessandro Buongiorno and Brandon Soppy.
The away team confidently pushed their squad high, putting intense pressure. Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram soon missed their own opportunities. However, Torino was not satisfied, repeatedly forcing Yann Sommer to show off his talent against Demba Seck’s curling shot or Pietro Pellegri’s header.
At the beginning of the second half, Inter took the lead thanks to Thuram’s brilliance from Denzel Dumfries’ pass right after the Dutch defender came on as a substitute in the 57th minute.
Inter’s second goal came from a set situation, with Lautaro Martinez scoring after a header from close range.
In stoppage time, Mkhitaryan was illegally blocked in the penalty area by Ivan Ilic Calhanoglu made no mistake with his penalty kick, sealing a 3-0 victory for Inter. At this time, the Nerazzurri temporarily rose to the top of the Serie A rankings, with 1 point more than AC Milan, but had played 1 more match than the Rossoneri.
