  • Live Commentary

    • 90+3' There goes the whistle for full-time. A 2-0 win for Inter Milan. All very comfortable. They are three points off leaders Juventus, Napoli and Lazio. Thanks for joining us this evening.
    • 89' Heading into three minutes of time added on.
    • 88' The home fans have stayed with Torino tonight despite their apparent struggles.
    • 87' A booking here for Glik after he fouled Cassano. Torino resigned to their fate then.
    • 85' Cambiasso back to head clear for Inter before Santana's cross is blocked.
    • 84' Inter have been in possession for 33 minutes of this match with Torino restricted to only 21. Says it all about how this match has worked out.
    • 83' Santana brings down Cassano out wide. Inter continue to keep the ball with some menace.
    • 82' Two goals for Milito this season and now two for Cassano for the season. A brisk bit of work for Inter tonight. Have looked fairly comfortable this evening.
    • 81' Guarin has departed for Walter Gargano. A second win of the season for Inter then.
    • 80' Alvarez with the ball into the middle. Milito ran over it and Cassano was on hand to finish.
    • 79' GOAL! Cassano turns in the box and clips the ball into the net. Game over now. Inter lead 2-0.
    • 77' Inter have won their previous eight meetings at Torino and looking good here for a ninth success.
    • 76' The home fans trying to encourage Torino to produce one last push, but Inter continue to keep the ball.
    • 75' Andrea Stramaccioni looking quite content on the touchline. All his side need to go here is see this match out which they look quite capable of doing.
    • 73' Another change for the home side as Cerci is introduced to replace Stevanovic.
    • 72' Inter look to break through Alvarez, but Brighi is back doing some sterling defensive work.
    • 71' Riccardo Meggiorini slams a shot at goal from 25 yards out, but the ball ends up deflecting well wide.
    • 70' Inter keeping the ball at the back again here. Seem to have weathered the storm.
    • 69' Game raging from end to end as Gazzi is booked for a late, late challange on Zanetti.
    • 68' Referee asking the Torino coach Giampiero Ventura to explain himself over something or other. On we go. Not sent to the stands.
    • 67' Guarin dinks a free-kick into the path of Cambiasso, who can only knock the ball into the arms of Gillet.
    • 66' Torino suddenly finding more joy in the Inter half as Santana turns and wallops an effort wide of goal. A spirted recovery this by Torino.
    • 65' Antonio Cassano is given the nod to take over from Sneijder.
    • 64' Meggiorini is on the deck needing some treatment after clashing with Ranocchia out wide.
    • 63' Another chance for Torino, but Bianchi knocks a volley straight at Handanovic when it looked easier to score. That should have been the leveller. Torino's best chance of the evening.
    • 62' Glorious chance for Meggiorini, but drives the shot wide of goal. Should have hit the target.
    • 61' Torino trying to ask a few questions of the Inter defence here, but finding it difficult.
    • 60' Rolando Bianchi turns and shoots at the Inter goal, but Handanovic is alert to make the save. No real pace on the shot.
    • 59' Riccardo Meggiorini takes over from Alessandro Sgrigna for Torino.
    • 58' Alessio Cerci replaces Alen Stevanovic for the home side.
    • 57' A foul by Alvarez on Darmian and Torino can apply some pressure here.
    • 56' Diego Milito has now scored five goal goals in six Serie A games played against Jean-François Gillet. Not a bad return.
    • 55' Sgrigna snatches at the shot from Ranocchia's attempted clearance. Spins it wide and there are going to be changes here for Torino.
    • 54' Torino just backing off as Guarin feeds Zanetti. The cross whacked clear. Zanetti looking to join the attack.
    • 53' Inter picking their passes in the Torino half. Some gorgeous stuff to keep the ball under control so well.
    • 52' Nagatomo takes up a good position out wide. Dinks the cross into the middle, but Gillet is on hand to collect the loose ball.
    • 51' Game opening up as Sneijder just fails to connect with the pass from Guarin. Superb move. Right idea.
    • 50' Torino trying to imrpess themselves upon Inter, but it is Sneijder who sees a lovely chipped effort spin wide from distance.
    • 49' Guarin lets fly from distance, but screws the shot well wide of the goal.
    • 48' Sgrigna smacks a shot off a post, but is just offside. Early warning for Inter in this half.
    • 47' A change coming for Inter as Jonathan departs to be replaced by Ricky Alvarez.
    • 46' We are off and running at the start of this second period.
    • 45+3' A real comfortable half for Inter Milan. They lead 1-0 thanks to that Milito strike. Looking good for an away win here.
    • 44' Three minutes to be added to the first half.
    • 43' Bianchi goes to ground, but now it seems that Jonathan is needing a spot of treatment. Shoulder injury by the looks of things.
    • 42' Milito tries to dig out the shot, but fails to connect properly with the ball. Looked like he was fouled there, but the referee waves play on.
    • 41' Sneijder hammers a shot wide of goal from 25 yards out. That will be a goalkick to Torino. Inter well in the comfort zone here.
    • 40' Guarin tries to feed Milito, but he just strayed offside. A free-kick from the back for Torino.
    • 39' A real tough examination this for Torino. Inter playing with plenty of patience and ring craft. Milito leading the line superbly well.
    • 38' Sneijder can't pick out a team-mate with the corner, but Guarin almost picks out Milito. Inches away from connecting.
    • 37' Guarin's shot is deflected behind for a corner to Inter. Which will be thrown in by Sneijder.
    • 36' Handanovic comes off his line to collect the ball from a corner. Commanding stuff from the Inter Milan goalkeeper.
    • 35' Nagatomo forces Handanovic to punch the ball away after he found himself under pressure from Bianchi in his own box.
    • 34' Nagatomo has been booked for kicking the ball away. Stupid stuff from the Inter player it must be said.
    • 33' Cambiasso knocks a hopeful ball down the line before Nagatomo is deemed to be offside from a Sneijder pass.
    • 32' Brighi penalised for handling the ball. Protests his innocence. More frustration for Torino then.
    • 31' Sgrigna is penalised for going too early and that will a free-kick to Inter deep in their own half.
    • 30' Inter working hard to ensure Torino can't get a cross into their area. Torino sitting pretty deep. Not really throwing caution to the wind.
    • 29' Meanwhile, Nagatomo herds the ball out of play for a goalkick to the visiting side. All good at the moment for Inter.
    • 28' Ranocchia and Jonathan collide going for the same ball. Looks like he is going to need a spot of treatment.
    • 27' Stevanovic manages to get the cross ahead of Nagatomo, but easy pickings for Handanovic in the Inter Milan goal.
    • 26' Inter beginning to see more and more of the ball. Happy to go backwards. Inter in control of the ball at the moment.
    • 25' Crisp strike by Sneijder around the wall, but Gillet dives low to his left to keep out the shot. Great save and shot.
    • 24' Exceptional run by Zanetti. Not that you would expect anything else from him. Free-kick on the edge of the home box.
    • 23' Masiello brings Zanetti crashing to the deck with a body check and he is booked for that challenge.
    • 22' Pereira off the park getting some treatment here before play continues. That Milito goal has knocked the wind out of Torino sails.
    • 21' That is an awful challenge. Fortunate to avoid a straight red card for that challenge. Poor, poor stuff it must be said.
    • 20' Gillet lifts the goalkick long down the park before Bianchi is booked for a late tackle on Pereira.
    • 19' Inter remain with only one shot at goal and one goal. Talk about taking your chances.
    • 18' Zanetti on the deck, but is back up quickly. What a player Zanetti remains for Inter. A true leader in every sense.
    • 17' Solid piece of defending by Juan. Meanwhile, Bianchi seems to have taken a dull one and is needing some treatment.
    • 16' Torino have lost their last eight home games vs Inter in Serie A, scoring overall only two goals. Not the best stat when you are one down.
    • 15' Juan back to head the ball clear in front of Bianchi. Decent move by Torino, but the final ball is not there.
    • 14' No need now for Inter to throw bodies forward. Not that they were doing so before they netted. That was their first shot of the night.
    • 13' Ogbonna drives the ball at goal from distance, but Handanovic is down quickly to make the stop. His first save of the night.
    • 12' Bianchi tries an audacious backheel, but wide of the goal. Inter comfortable with this lead so far.
    • 11' That goal came right out of nowhere. Torino had won the ball from Sneijder, but suddenly it is in the home net. Silence around the ground.
    • 10' GOAL! Milito smashes the ball home from 25 yards out. Blistering finish from the forward. A 1-0 lead for Inter.
    • 9' Torino just shading possession here. Certainly seem to be more direct than the visitors.
    • 8' Nice piece of possession play by Inter. Keeping the ball well here in their own half.
    • 7' Torino and Inter share the record for the most consecutive Serie A triumphs, with five apiece. Torino set the record between 1943-49 and Inter equalled it between 2006-10.
    • 6' First attack of the game from Inter as Sneijder sent Nagatomo scampering down a flank. Decent cross, but just fails to pick out Milito in the middle.
    • 5' Sgrigna caught marginally offside there. Inter Milan playing a high line and what could be deemed a dangerous game.
    • 4' Guarin winning the ball ahead of Gazzi in the air. Vibrant enough start by the home side here. No clear-cut chances yet.
    • 3' Santana caught just offside from Jonathan's pass through the middle.
    • 2' Jonathan goes to ground. Appeals for a foul, but the referee doesn't want to know. Plenty of smoke around the pitch.
    • 1' Torino get this match off and running here.
    • 19.40 Juventus continue to set the pace in Serie A courtesy of a 3-1 win at Genoa this afternoon. Read about it here... Juventus sink Genoa with second-half blitz
    • 19.35 Teams: Torino 1 Gillet, 36 Darmian, 25 Glik, 6 Ogbonna, 17 S.Masiello; 33 Brighi, 14 Gazzi; 19 Stevanovic, 10 Sgrigna, 9 Bianchi, 7 Santana////Inter Milan: 1 Handanovic; 42 Jonathan, 23 Ranocchia, 40 Juan Jesus, 55 Nagatomo; 4 Zanetti, 14 Guarin, 19 Cambiasso, 31 Pereira; 10 Sneijder; 22 Milito
