Torino 1-2 Inter: Lautaro & Lukaku make it eight wins in a row for Scudetto-chasers

A late winner from Lautaro Martinez gave Inter their eighth win in a row in a 2-1 victory over relegation strugglers Torino

Inter’s march towards a first Scudetto continued on Sunday as they won 2-1 at Torino, a Romelu Lukaku penalty and late Lautaro Martinez header earning them the points.

The Nerazzurri came into this game as the red-hot favourites, having won seven Serie A games in a row and conceded just two goals in nine matches.

The first half was a rather turgid affair, though, with Inter creating only two half-chances for Lautaro Martinez.

Indeed, it was Torino who had the only big chance of the opening period. Defender Lyanco somehow only headed against the post with the goal gaping from a left-wing free kick.

SERIE A TABLE: Inter go nine points clear

Inter were improved after the interval but it took a moment of madness from Torino defender Armando Izzo to gift them the lead.

Izzo charged through the back of Lautaro in the area and the referee pointed to the penalty spot.

Romelu Lukaku sent Salvatore Sirigu the wrong way to give Inter the lead.

Inter then had the chance to double their advantage, but Sirigu made a fine save with his feet to deny Achraf Hakimi.

A second Inter goal seemed more likely but Torino levelled the scores on 72 minutes through Antonio Sanabria, who reacted first to sweep the ball home.

Inter were not to be denied, though, and Lautaro earned his side all three points with a brilliant header five minutes from time.

The Argentine nodded back across Sirigu and into the far corner from substitute Alexis Sanchez’s cross.

This win means Serie A leaders Inter are now nine points clear of AC Milan, who have the chance to close the gap back down to six against Napoli on Sunday evening.

Inter has won the match.
