Inter 1-2 Torino

Torino finally end their long run without a victory thanks to an impressive 2-1 victory over nine men Inter on Sunday evening.

Inter were awarded a controversial penalty after only seventeen minutes when Marcelo Brozovic's shot hit the arm of Emiliano Moretti who had attempted to block the shot.

Mauro Icardi stepped up and his powerful effort beat Daniele Padelli from 12 yards to give the home side the lead.

Toro were level ten minutes into the 2nd half after excellent hold up play from Maxi Lopez allowed the Argentine to feed Cristian Molinaro who scored a rare goal with his right foot.

Moments after that goal Inter were reduced to ten men when defender Miranda was dismissed for a second yellow card. Despite that setback, Inter almost took the lead through Icardi's close range header, but he was denied by an excellent save from Padelli.

With less than twenty minutes remaining, Yuto Nagatomo was adjudged to have fouled Andrea Belotti in the area and as the Japanese international was the last man he was also given his marching orders.

Belotti stepped up and sent penalty saving expert Samir Handanovic the wrong way to give Toro the lead.

The Granata had more chances on the counter attack to extend their lead, with Daniele Baselli coming the closest but his effort hit the post late on. The score remained 2-1 as Toro claimed a much needed victory, and their second successive win against Inter at the San Siro.

Forza Toro
