Torino hold Inter despite Hart blunders as Milan edge Genoa

Antonio Candreva rescued a point for Internazionale as they were held to a 2-2 draw with Torino, while Matias Fernandez netted AC Milan’s only goal in their 1-0 win over Genoa in Serie A action on Saturday.

Inter have been in fine form of late, only losing to teams above them in the league, but were held by mid-table Torino this weekend.

Geoffrey Kondogbia opened the scoring for Stefano Pioli’s visiting side in the 27th minute before a 33rd minute equaliser from Daniele Baselli.

Afriyie Acquah then put the hosts into a 59th minute lead, but Candreva pulled his side level in 62 minutes – although he wasn’t able to further effect the result as they left the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino with a share of the spoils.

Both sides enjoyed a number of half chances before Kondogbia beat three Torino defenders to create space for a shot, and despite making a decent connection, Hart should have made a comfortable save, but allowed the ball to creep under his hands and into the back of the net.

Baselli though was well positioned to head home an equaliser from close range as he connected to an Emiliano Moretti flick from a good Adam Ljajic corner.

Samir Handanovic was kept busy after the break and made a number of stops, but was unable to deny Acquah from firing in an excellent shot in the 59th minute.

Iturbe fed Acquah on the edge of the box, and he took his time before curling a shot past Handanovic and into the top corner of his net.

Candreva though had the final say as he forced another error from Hart, on 62 minutes. The England goalkeeper had come out of his goal to claim an Ansaldi cross but completely missed the ball, allowing Candreva to volley into an empty net.
