Inter Milan vs Torino
2018/19 Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 26 August 2018
Kick-Off: 19:30 UK,
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (Milan).
Inter will be keen on getting quickly back on track after a stumble against Sassuolo on matchday one. The Neroverdi again proved to be the Nerazzurri’s bogey team, and now Luciano Spalletti will be feeling some slight pressure as Inter take on Torino for their first home game on matchday two this Sunday.
Sassuolo have proved to be a thorn in Inter’s side as of late, and again the plucky side proved to be a nuisance yet again as a penalty from Domenico Berardi was enough to give them a 1-0 win and place Inter in the bottom half of the table.
It’s still obviously early on in the season, but certainly Inter expected that game to be one that they should have won to keep pace alongside Roma, Juventus, and Napoli – all teams they will be competing with for the Scudetto this season.
As for Torino, the visitors will be quite frustrated having lost their opening match against Roma thanks to a brilliant effort from Edin Dzeko.
The Granata will also be bitterly disappointed with this result, as overall, they were pretty solid throughout and were only undone at the last minute.
Having managed to hang on to their star man Andrea Belotti, Torino will be hoping to actually make a push for a Europa League berth this season, and know that simply put, racking up points will be the only way to achieve that objective.
Still, that will be obviously much easier said than done, especially as the visitors are now set to take on their second big side this weekend.

Inter Milan vs Torino: Prediction
