Inter 2-0 Torino: Champions assert dominance on Torino

Last Updated on 29/04/2024 by

Inter achieved a 2-0 victory over Torino at home through the efforts of Hakan Calhanoglu, who scored twice. This victory closed off a week that was truly unforgettable.

A guard of honor was presented to Inter before the game in recognition of their victory in the Scudetto. The Nerazzurri were fortunate not to concede an early goal, as Duvan Zapata had a shot that was saved and also headed wide earlier in the game.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s long-range lob sailed narrowly over the bar, while Marcus Thuram’s shot from a tight angle flew over the bar. Simone Inzaghi’s team had the best opportunity to score, but Marcus Thuram missed an opportunity.

It was during the second half that Adrien Tameze was initially booked for a challenge on Mkhitaryan. This was the moment that turned the tide of the game. After the referee issued a booking, the video assistant referee (VAR) instructed her to check at the monitor, and the verdict was revised to a red card.

Calhanoglu capped off a sweeping move with a vicious low strike inside the box after Mkhitaryan’s first-time pass seven minutes later, which broke the deadlock for the home team despite the fact that they had been tied.

And shortly after that, Inter made it 2-0 when Matteo Lovato was called for a foul on Thuram, which resulted in a penalty kick being awarded to Inter. Calhanoglu, a Turkish midfielder, converted the penalty kick for his second goal of the match.

Inter has moved up to 89 points as a result of this performance, and with four games left to play, they have the opportunity to shatter a club record that they set in 2006-2007 when they accumulated 97 points.
