Torino v Inter Predictions and Preview
The Nerazzurri had one of their best weeks in terms of performance this season, as Simone Inzaghi’s men ran riot and beat Salernitana 5-0 last weekend, while they also earned a historic 1-0 win at Anfield against Liverpol on Tuesday. Despite this, the Beneamata were eliminated from the Champions League, so they can now fully focus on Scudetto race in Serie A, where they are currently trailing by two points behind Milan, albeit with a game in hand.
Inter ended their horrendous winless streak of four games, that saw them lose top spot, while Lautaro Martinez also ended his goal draught with a hat-trick against Salernitana. Edin Dzeko added the other two strikes and the Bosnian will be expected to start, as he didn’t feature in the 1-0 win over Liverpool. Alexis Sanchez was sent off after picking up two yellow cards against the Reds, but he’ll be available against Torino and is expected to start on the bench.
The Granata were held to a goalless draw away to Bologna last time and are now winless in six straight games. Ivan Juric’s men have returned to their bad habits from previous years and have to 11th place in the table, trailing by 13 points behind the European places. Torino lost each of their last five games against Inter and despite having home advantage, everything points to another Nerazzurri victory this time as well.
Torino vs. Inter full time result odds
The hosts will have to do without the injured Dennis Praet and Mohamed Fares, while young striker Pietro Pellegri is battling against time to recover from a fever. However, with Andrea Belotti being fit again, Pellegri wasn’t expected to start, as Toni Sanabria is also ahead of him in Ivan Juric’s pecking order.
The visitors, meanwhile, will be missing Stefan De Vrij, who picked up an injury against Liverpool, while Marcelo Brozovic is also a doubt, as he was limping and got subbed off in the second half at Anfield on Tuesday. Simone Inzaghi has almost his full squad available, but the ex-Lazio tactician might rest some of his players after the tough clash in midweek.
Torino vs. Inter both teams to sore odds
Torino scored at least once in 10 consecutive Serie A games at home, while Inter failed to find the back of the net in only two of their last 22 games on the road.

You can go with BTTS this time as well at 8/11, while the odds raise to 2/1 if you pair this with Over 2.5 goals.
Torino vs. Inter correct score odds
The Granata lost their last two games at home by 2-1, while Inter won their last trip to Stadio Olimpico di Torino by the same result.
