Torino vs Inter Milan preview - Nerazzurri looking to bounce back

I have a say

Posted Sunday, September 16, 2012 by PA

Inter Milan travel to a happy hunting ground on Sunday when they look to put a 3-1 home defeat to Roma behind them with victory over Torino.

The Nerazzurri have won on their last eight visits to the home of the Granata but that is no reason for Torino to settle for only a draw this time, according to their president Urbano Cairo.

"I hope and believe in my side and would not settle for anything right now," he said.

"We will play for the win and the result will be the consequence of the work we do during the week."

There has not been much enthusiasm about Torino's return to the top flight, though, with a record low number of season tickets sold during the summer.

Nevertheless, Cairo has not given up on winning back the fans, even in difficult economic times.

"The crisis hits everybody, especially football fans," he told newspaper Il Giornale. "If the team play well and get good results, then the people will come flocking back.

"For the time being, let's just enjoy the 26,000 fans we have tomorrow night. It is not always the case that the more money you spend, the more you win in football."

Inter have spent much less than usual this summer, actually selling more players than they have bought with the likes of Maicon, Lucio, Julio Cesar and Giampaolo Pazzini all leaving for pastures new.

Antonio Cassano has arrived, though, and after his goal on his debut against Roma and his record of five goals scored against Torino, he will lead the Nerazzurri's bid for a second win of the season tomorrow.
