Inter 1-1 Torino

Torino produced their best performance of the season so far as they almost inflicted a first defeat of the season on high flying Inter.

Toro once again lined up in a 4-3-3 formation, with former Inter defender Nicolás Burdisso the surprise inclusion as the Argentine made his Granata debut.

Daniele Baselli's had Toro's first effort but his long range effort was well saved by Inter keeper Samir Handanovič. At the other end, Salvatore Sirigu made an excellent stop to deny Milan Škriniar from heading home.

Baselli went close once again just before half time, but the midfielder's near post header was turned round the post by Handanovič.

Toro took the lead on the hour mark as Iago Falque, scored a goal typical of the Spanish winger as he cut in on his left foot before firing home.

The Granata should have doubled their lead moments later, but Joel Obi somehow headed over the bar from close range after Adem Ljajic's free kick.

Inter equalised ten minutes from time, as substitute Eder finished well following Mauro Icardi's assist.

Torino will certainly feel disappointed with a point given the fact they took the lead, but the performance was extremely encouraging.
