Inter 2-2 Torino

Torino came back from 2-0 down at half time to earn a deserved point against Inter at the San Siro on Sunday evening.

Cristian Ansaldi returned from suspension to start at left wing back, whilst Roberto Soriano made his first start for the club replacing the injured Daniele Baselli.

The home side took the lead after just six minutes when Mauro Icardi crossed for Ivan Perisic to smash home.

Toro were unusually poor in the first half, and conceded a second goal when Stefan De Vrij headed home Matteo Politano's free kick just after the half hour mark.

After a few harsh words by coach Walter Mazzarri at half time, Torino emerged as a different team in the second half and reduced the deficit after fifty-six minutes.

Iago Falque's was inside his own half when he found an inch perfect pass for strike partner Andrea Belotti, whose first touch beat Samir Handanovic and second touch found the back of the net.

Torino were then level twelve minutes later, as Soualiho Meite collected a loose ball on the edge of the area, took it past Ivan Perisic and his deflected shot then beat Handanovic for the second time.

Incredibly, Toro then had chances to win the game as Andrea Belotti volleyed just over the bar from Ola Aina's clever knock down and substitute Adem Ljajic forced a save from Handanovic.

In the dying moments, Torino keeper Salvatore Sirigu made a sensational save from Perisic's long range strike to ensure the Granata went back to Turin with a deserved point.

Forza Toro
