Torino 1-0 Inter

Torino reignited their hopes for Europa League qualification following a narrow 1-0 victory over Inter on Sunday evening.

Armando Izzo returned to the starting eleven following suspension, whilst Cristian Ansaldi maintained his place in centre midfield, and Simone Zaza made a rare start upfront.

The away side should have taken the lead in the early stages but Lautaro Martínez somehow put his shot wide of the post when well placed.

Salvatore Sirigu made a good save to deny Mauro Icardi as the Granata had to withstand a spell of early pressure from Inter.

However, with ten minutes until half time, it was Toro who would take the lead as Armando Izzo met Cristian Ansaldi's cross with a looping header into the far corner.

Both sides struggled to create chances after the break, although substitute Matteo Politano whistled a shot just past the post from long range.

Frustration would later get the better of the former Sassuolo man, as he was shown a straight red card in the dying moments for dissent, and Toro were able to hold on for a valuable three points.

Forza Toro
