Torino vs Inter Milan Prediction & Match Preview



Torino vs Inter Milan Prediction & Match Preview

Thanks to Milan Skriniar’s goal, Inter defeated Atalanta in the Serie A derby and moved one step closer to winning Scudetto. 

Antonio Conte’s men look unstoppable in the second half of the season, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to beat Torino at Stadio Olimpico di Torino. 

There are no fresh injury worries in the away team, which is yet another reason why odds for Inter’s win have been dropping.

Il Toro, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-2 loss to Crotone. 

The hosts are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Inter, and, taking everything into account, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. 

Rincon is banned for the match, but there are no injured footballers in the home team. It has to be noted that Inter are eyeing their fourth consecutive win over Torino.

Team News:

After being sent for surgery on a torn meniscus, Inter boss Antonio Conte will be without midfielder Arturo Vidal - who had finally started on Monday after a prolonged spell out of the team - until some time next month. Otherwise, only Christian Eriksen (knee) and Aleksandr Kolarov are doubtful ahead of the trip to Turin.

If Eriksen is fit to start, the former Tottenham playmaker should come back in to replace Vidal, with the rest of the XI that faced Atalanta unlikely to change.

Following his late red card in Crotone, midfield mainstay Tomas Rincon must serve a suspension for Torino, but Davide Nicola will be buoyed by the return of several first-teamers after they emerged from quarantine protocols.

The Granata's COVID-19 outbreak seems to be subsiding, as Karol Linetty, Bremer and top scorer Andrea Belotti returned negative tests during the week, with both Wilfred Singo and Nicolas Nkoulou awaiting the results of re-tests before kickoff.

If Bremer is not thrown back into the deep end against the fearsome Inter attack, then former Milan defender Ricardo Rodriguez would continue to deputise in the Toro back three, while Serbian midfielder Sasa Lukic could cover for Linetty again if needed.

After scoring his first goal for the club, having returned from his own brush with the virus, Antonio Sanabria is set to continue in the front pairing alongside Simone Zaza, with Belotti perhaps playing a part from the bench.

Torino possible starting lineup:
Sirigu; Izzo, Lyanco, Rodriguez; Vojvoda, Baselli, Mandragora, Lukic, Ansaldi; Zaza, Sanabria

Inter Milan possible starting lineup:
Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Brozovic, Eriksen, Perisic; Martinez, Lukaku
