FULL TIME: Inter 2 – 0 Torino

Champions Inter Milan eased to a 2-0 win over Torino at the San Siro thanks to a brace from star midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu who scored one from open play and one from the spot to continue his good form this season as a goalscorer.

Inter moved on to 89 points for the season as they look to finish strong in the final few weeks of the 2023-24 Serie A season.

Hakan Calhanoglu scored twice as Inter Milan capped off a memorable week by beating ten-man Torino 2-0 at home to put themselves in a celebratory mood for Sunday’s open top bus parade.

The Nerazzurri, who were given a guard of honour before the game for clinching the Scudetto, were fortunate not to concede early on with Duvan Zapata having a shot saved and also heading wide.

Simone Inzaghi saw his side’s best chance fall to Marcus Thuram who blazed over from a tight angle while Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s long range lob went narrowly over the bar.

The turning point came in the second half when Adrien Tameze was initially booked for a challenge on Mkhitaryan. The referee gave a booking but VAR told her to look at the monitor and the decision was changed to a red card.

Seven minutes later, the hosts broke the deadlock when Calhanoglu finished off a sweeping move with a fierce low strike inside the box from Mkhitaryan’s first-time pass.

And Inter made it 2-0 soon after when Matteo Lovato conceded a penalty with a foul on Thuram with Turkish midfielder Calhanoglu converting the spotkick for his second of the game.

The result sees Inter move to 89 points and with four games remaining they have the chance to break a club record when they accrued 97 points in the 2006-07 campaign.
