MATCH PREVIEW: TORINO VS. INTER

The Nerazzurri return from the international break for the 13th match of the league campaign

MILAN- League action finally returns with Inter’s match at Torino. The sides will meet at 20:45 CET at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino for the 13th match of the Serie A TIM season. The Nerazzurri are currently second on 31 points. The match against the Granata comes after an international break which involved 13 First Team players who featured for almost 1,400 minutes. 

 

TRIVIA
D'Ambrosio and the 4 former players 

Should he play, Danilo D’Ambrosio will make his 200th appearance in Serie A. The Nerazzurri defender played 42 times for Torino in the division, scoring two goals. He has played 157 times for Inter (10 league goals). He’s not the only one up against his old team. Daniele Padelli spent four seasons at Torino while Asamoah and Berni were both there but without ever making competitive appearances. 

 

Lukaku and Lautaro are on fire
The strike partnership has already hit 14 goals with nine for Lukaku and five for Lautaro. 11 of these 14 goals have come in away games. In the Inter squad, Candreva and Stefan De Vrij are the only two players to have previously scored for us against Torino. 

 

Mazzarri and Ansaldi, former Nerazzurri

Torino Coach Walter Mazzarri was in charge of Inter for 49 matches in Serie A between 2013 and 2014. He won 19 times, drew 19 and lost 11. In meetings of Conte and Mazzarri, the Inter boss has a positive record with three wins, three draws and one defeat. Christian Ansaldi also plays for Torino after representing Inter in the 2016-17 season. 

 

THE COACH’S COMMENTS 

“We’re in an emergency situation but it must provide us with motivation, we know that we need to get the most out of the players. It’s always hard to prepare for games after the break but the Torino match is an important and difficult one, we’ll be ready for it and we’re preparing at our best.”
