Torino 0-3 Inter

Torino fell to a disappointing 3-0 home defeat against Inter in terrible weather conditions on Saturday evening.

Torrential rain at the Stadio Grande Torino put the game in doubt, but the game did begin after a slight delay as particularly poor areas of the pitch were made playable.

The home side may have been regretting the work of the groundsmen to get the game on, when inspirational captain Andrea Belotti limped off the pitch with a rib injury after only ten minutes. Almost immediately, Inter took the lead when Lautaro Martinez latched onto a headed clearance and finished well past Salvatore Sirigu.

The Italian international goalkeeper then made a stunning save to deny Romelu Lukaku from doubling the away side's lead. However, from the resulting corner, more poor defending from Toro allowed Stefan de Vrij to side foot home at the far post.

Toro came close to pulling a goal back just before half time, but this time it was Samir Handanovic's turn to make a great save, as he denied Lorenzo De Silvestri.

However, Inter put the result beyond any doubt when Romelu Lukaku added a third goal, ten minutes after half time.

This was another disappointing performance for the Granata, who have now lost seven of their thirteen league games this season - and are only four points above the bottom three.

Forza Toro
