Inter Milan suffer shock defeat

Inter Milan, who is eyeing a Champions League qualification spot, suffered a shocked defeat against Torino 2-1. To make matters worse, the Milan club was reduced to 9 men following the sending off of Miranda and Yuto Nagatomo during the match.

The game started well for Inter Milan with Mauro Icardi opening the scoring for them on a penalty. They were awarded the spot-kick because of a handball from Emiliano Moretti. The game itself was marred by a series of fouls and cautions.

There were few goalscoring opportunities until the break with Inter Milan leading 1-0. After the break, Torino pushed for an equalizer, and they were rewarded when Cristian Molinaro makes the most of a Maxi Lopez. Molinaro will not give the keeper any chance.

Inter Milan’s fortune changed after the goal with Miranda being sent off for a second yellow card for a challenge from behind. However, Milan was not really affected by going one man down and instead created the best chances in the game. Mauro Icardi could have given his team again the lead, but his header was saved brilliantly by the Torino’s keeper Padelli.

Things will get even worse with the sending off of Yuto Nagamoto. He was judged to have fouled Belotti inside the box and as a result received a red card. Torino would take the lead from the resulting penalty when Belotti beat Samir Handanovic.

The visitors could have added another goal late in the injury time, but Molinaro’s shot rebounded off the post.

This result will be hard to take for Inter Milan since it seriously damages their hope of making it to next season Champions League. The latest football betting odds at StanJames suggests they are dark horses now.

They will need to regroup to focus on the next match so as to keep their hopes alive.
