Inter Milan – Torino (2-0): Player Ratings

Inter Milan – Torino (2-0)

Inter Milan

Sommer 6 – Despite needing another remarkable performance, achieving the eighteenth clean sheet in the league keeps the record within reach. Only one shot on target in the first half and little else to note.

Pavard 6.5 – He’s been consistent lately and pushes forward whenever he gets the chance. Contributed to Inter’s dangerous plays during the match.

De Vrij 6.5 – Solid performance, shutting down Zapata and Sanabria effectively.

Bastoni 6 – Didn’t face much threat from Juric’s tactics. Less impactful in possession than usual. (Subbed off at 71′ for Buchanan 6 – Needs to earn the space demanded by fans: a lackluster substitution).

Darmian 6.5 – Started with a magnificent heel pass, which remains memorable despite being offside, the highlight of an otherwise flawless match.

Barella 7 – In stellar form, deserves to be preserved until the Euros. Dominant at times, with his recovery leading to Inter’s opening goal. (Subbed off at 72′ for Arnautovic 6 – Moved well and created space for teammates in a game already decided).

Calhanoglu 8 – With thirteen league goals and eleven converted penalties this season, he swiftly sealed the deal in just three minutes of normal play. (Subbed off at 64′ for Asllani 6 – Calm and composed, like all substitutes on the verge of not being rated).

Mkhitaryan 7 – Key player in pivotal moments, displaying tactical intelligence. His run led to Tameze’s expulsion, shifting the momentum in the second half. Also provided the assist for Calhanoglu’s goal. (Subbed off at 64′ for Frattesi 5.5 – Missed a chance for the third goal but had a decent performance).

Carlos Augusto 6.5 – Effective on the wing and in defensive duties, nothing out of the ordinary.

Thuram 6.5 – A player like him is what Inter needs next season, showcasing his dribbling and attacking prowess. Won the penalty to secure the win, receiving applause from San Siro. (Subbed off at 64′ for Sanchez 6.5 – Brought creativity upon entering).

Lautaro 6.5 – Enduring a two-month goal drought, which slightly affects him, but not enough to change penalty responsibilities, handed to Calhanoglu. Showed captain-like qualities with his movements, recoveries, and ideas for teammates, though couldn’t find the net.

Simone Inzaghi 7.5 – His animated sideline display in the first half reflects the joy and camaraderie breaking through the seriousness of a championship they intend to honor despite already winning it. Only three minutes of brilliance in the second half were enough to dispatch Torino. Two games away from the record of consecutive matches with a goal in the league, playing for that and experimenting with interesting formations like the 3-4-1-2 to close out the match.

Torino

Milinkovic Savic 5.5 – Had little to contend with in the first half until Calhanoglu’s stunning strike. Lost the penalty duel with the Turkish forward, adding to Torino’s woes.

Bellanova 5 – Managed a few early duels with Carlos Augusto but struggled to contain Calhanoglu’s impact on the first goal.

Buongiorno 5.5 – Tasked with marking Thuram tightly, but the Frenchman’s speed rattled him, resorting to fouls.

Lovato 5 – Tracking Lautaro is no easy feat, and he struggled. Lost him entirely in an exchange with Thuram, leading to the penalty for the second goal.

R. Rodriguez 5.5 – Under pressure from Inter’s relentless pressing, struggled defensively. Masina’s entry at 72′ provided a boost to Torino’s defense.

Tameze 5 – Robust in tackles but his second-half foul on Mkhitaryan cost Torino dearly, receiving a straight red card.

Ricci 6 – Came alive after a slow start, disrupting Inter’s plays effectively alongside Ilic.

Ilic 6 – Showed signs of redemption, orchestrating play from deep positions. Hindered Inter’s attacks in the second half.

Vlasic 5 – Lacked presence upfront, focusing more on defensive duties. Didn’t shine creatively.

Lazaro 5 – Provided a couple of decent crosses but his errors, including one leading to Calhanoglu’s goal, overshadowed his contributions. Vojvoda’s substitution at 63′ aimed to shore up Torino’s defense.

Zapata 6 – Injected energy into the team but lacked the finishing touch despite escaping De Vrij’s pressure multiple times. Sanabria’s substitution at 63′ aimed to add attacking impetus.

Ivan Juric 5.5 – Possibly erred in benching Sanabria. Vlasic’s underperformance coupled with Tameze’s red card tilted the game in Inter’s favor, dimming Torino’s European hopes, now 12 points adrift.
