Player Ratings – Torino 1 – 1 Inter: Nerazzurri No Longer Masters Of Own Destiny In Serie A Title Race
Inter produced their worst performance of the season away against Torino at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino but managed to get a draw in the dying seconds of the game.
The Nerazzurri started the game very poorly and were lucky to only be a goal down which came after shambolic defending when Bremer broke the deadlock.
In the second half Inter played better but were far from good and created a couple of clear cut chances with Dzeko missing both. 7
The Bosnian then assisted Alexis Sanchez for the equalizer in the 93rd minute and the latter made a amends for getting sent off midweek in the Champions League.
Samir Handanovic – 5: Made a few decent saves to make up partly for his ridiculous antics when conceding a corner which led to Torino’s goal in the first half.
Milan Skriniar – 5,5: Not the player we saw midweek against Liverpool and wasn’t good but still Inter’s best defender on the night which says it all really.
Andrea Ranocchia – 4: Had a vintage banter era performance where he couldn’t simply get anything right. Made simple things hard and failed at everything else.
Alessandro Bastoni – 5: Didn’t have his best game just like the rest of his teammates and was brought off at half-time being replaced by Dimarco.
Matteo Darmian – 5,5: Slight improvement in the second half compared to the horror show in the first. Couldn’t deliver a cross to a teammate to save his life.
Nicolo Barella – 5,5: Worked hard and tried to lead by example but there was no structure in midfield so his efforts were largely meaningless.
Matias Vecino – 4: The only player on the pitch less suited than him to replace Brozovic was Handanovic and so he game a performance on par with that.
Hakan Calhanoglu – 5,5: Set pieces were very good and how not a single one of these ended up in the back of the net is shocking. His passing was off all night.
Ivan Perisic – 5,5: Completely erased from the game in the first half and was brought off during the interval. Hopefully just a bad night and not a drop in form.
Lautaro Martinez – 5,5: Poor passing, poor link-up play, dreadful finishing, running in no-man’s land until he was replaced by Alexis Sanchez in the second half.
Edin Dzeko – 5,5: Missed another two sitters to add to this season’s tally to secure yet another European Golden Choke In Front Of Goal Award.
Robin Gosens – 5: Brought on at half-time to replace Perisic but showed that he is currently far from fully match fit or in any form to play other than sub.
Federico Dimarco – 5: Replaced Bastoni at half-time to provide crosses in from the left but failed to do that with any success on top of poor performance.
Arturo Vidal – 5,5: Came on in the 68th minute for Vecino and had 1 good opportunity which he aimed too directly at Berisha. Missed simple passes as usual.
Alexis Sanchez – 7: Only Inter player on the night who played good making amends for getting sent off midweek against Liverpool. Should have started. MOTM.
Joaquin Correa – 5: Substituted on in the 76th minute for Calhanoglu in an attempt to go for the equalizer. Offered absolutely nothing once more in attack.
Simone Inzaghi – 4: His worst game in charge of Inter. Got everything wrong from line-up to formation to approach to tactics. Played with fire got burnt.
Marco Guida – 4: Consistently one of the worst referees in the Serie A which says a lot. Inconsistent and robbed Torino of a clear penalty in first half.
Inter – 4: Dreadful performance. Defensively a mess, offensively non-existent. The winter depression continued after a weeks respite.
