To defeat Torino 3-1 on Monday night Inter flew the traps out in the second half and take third place back in Serie A.
Inter lost early on to a Samir Handanovic howler but to break their losing streak, scored three times in the restart for the first 12 minutes.
Marcelo Brozovic played considering his off-field indiscretions and when Romelu Lukaku stayed home with an injury, Inter unexpectedly benched Milan Skriniar and Christian Eriksen.
There was a Torino side facing them without the suspended Simone Zaza, but it didn’t matter as Handanovic blessed Andrea Belotti with a tap-in, spilling a deep corner uncharacteristically.
Although to turn Brozovic’s scuffed strike around the post and block a snapshot of Lautaro Martinez, Salvatore Sirigu was on hand, the Nerazzurri offered little in the way of response.
