Torino 1-3 Inter

Inter set new record with victory over Torino

Internazionale set a new record of 12 consecutive wins in Serie A with a 3-1 victory over Torino at the Stadio delle Alpi on Saturday.

Adriano put the Nerazzurri into the lead with a textbook header midway through the first half from a pinpoint cross from Maicon on the right. The Brazilian defender rose above Marco di Loreto, and powered his header low into the bottom left hand corner past Christian Abbiati.

Torino levelled the scores against the run of play in the 58th minute after Stefano Fiore's shot took a wicked deflection off Marco Materazzi, though Zlatan Ibrahimovic restored Inter's lead with a superb volley less than a minute later.

Marco Materazzi sealed the points late on with a well-taken penalty after Abbiati brought down Adriano, a challenge which also saw him head for an early bath.

While the hosts dominated possession in the first half, they were too often let down by overconfidence and at times complacency on the part of their strikers, and it was not until Adriano drove in a fizzing free-kick from the edge of the area in the 22nd minute that Abbiati was called into action.

Two minutes later, the Brazilian went one better, giving further evidence of a return to the form that saw him finish top scorer in Serie A two years ago.

He could have doubled the lead on the strike of half-time, though was unable to connect properly after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had stormed past Gabriele Cioffi down the right and laid the ball into his path.

Torino's Alessandro Rosina caused a few nervous moments in the Inter defence early in the second half with two dangerous crosses, before the match sprang into life in the 58th minute.

Substitute Stefano Fiore collected the ball on the edge of the area, and fired in a shot that deflected off Marco Matterazzi and in past the helpless Julio Cesar in the Inter goal.

But no sooner had the home fans finished celebrating their team's equaliser, than Inter were ahead.

The hitherto erratic Ibrahimovic latched onto a long ball played in behind the defence, and held off the challenge of Cioffi, before drilling a volley across Abbiati and into the top left hand corner.

Torino again looked to hit back, with Stellone forcing Cesar into another smart stop, though Inter remained in control of proceedings.

Adriano should have extended the lead after finding himself one on one with only Abbiati to beat, though the former Milan stopper saved well down low with his right foot.

The Brazilian's final contribution sealed the win though, as he latched onto Vieira's delicious ball over the top of the defence, before knocking the ball past the onrushing Abbiati, who sent him crashing to the ground.

The goalkeeper was duly given his marching orders, and Materazzi stroked home the penalty with aplomb.
