Preview: Inter – Torino

Inter will be looking to overtake Serie A leaders Napoli, at least for a few hours. Nerazzurri are second in the league, two points behind the leaders, while their visitors today are 9th, with 16 points after 11 rounds.

 

Flashscore presents the key facts before the match:

Inter Milan welcome an inconsistent Torino side to the San Siro to put their unbeaten record to the test. 11 games have now passed without the Nerazzurri tasting defeat and they have won all 5 home games this term – scoring 12 goals in the process.

The visitors come into this game looking to kick on after a 2-1 win vs Cagliari. Before that victory, Torino were winless in 5 Serie A games and they may consider themselves lucky to still be in the top half of the table.

The raw stats point directly to a home win, with a flurry of goals to match. The visitors have conceded 2+ in each of their last 4 away ties, whilst the hosts have scored 2+ goals and been winning at both HT/FT at home in 5 of their last 6 league games.

Torino manager Sinisa Mihajilovic comes under more pressure by the week, but he did relieve some of that pressure with the recent victory. His job remains under the microscope – he must rally his team for this one if he hopes to remain in the hot seat.

Star striker Andrea Belotti returns after missing 4 games for Torino and will be desperate to get back on the scoresheet for the “Il Toro”.
