To finally give Inter victory away to Torino it took a spectacular Lautaro Martinez header, as Antonio Sanabria canceled out the Romelu Lukaku penalty.
Lautaro Martinez nodded over from Ivan Perisic’s cross in the first minute but was denied by a desperate Lyanco block.
Torino had a huge scoring chance, on the other hand, that they squandered on the 29th minute. Alessandro Bastoni stumbled on the Simone Verdi free-kick, giving Lyanco a completely free header from point-blank range, which Romelu Lukaku cleared off the line.
Christian Eriksen immediately made an impact after he came off the bench, starting the move for Lukaku, who set up Lautaro only to be clattered for a penalty by Armando Izzo. Romelu Lukaku scored a near-bottom corner goal.
Torino got back on equal terms in a messy fashion although Salvatore Sirigu used his legs to parry from Achraf Hakimi, and it was almost 2-0 moments later.
Stefan de Vrij forced Bremer into Barella, Simone Zaza’s shot was saved, and Antonio Sanabria converted the rebound after a frantic scramble. Pushes were talked about on both sides, but the matter appeared to level out.
Inter restored their advantage with a quality goal, as Alexis Sanchez floated a ball over the top for Lautaro Martinez to place a remote-controlled cushioned header across Sirigu into the far bottom corner.
