Inter beat Torino away from home as Brozovic scored the only goal to warm up before the Champions League final. The Nerazzurri finish third in the Serie A after securing all three points.
Inzaghi made five changes after his win over Atalanta, as he had one eye on the final next weekend. Inter played with a slow tempo, while the rain did not help, and the game had a cagey start with some fouls disrupting the flow.
Torino had the first real chance of the game as Ricci got inside from the left flank and created space to shoot. But Handanovic had it covered as the shot went wide of the near post. Lukaku was a real presence in attack for Inter despite the slow build-up.
The Belgian striker turned his marker around with his physicality and drove forward, but he slipped while attempting to place his shot.
Lukaku was dropping to help in progressing the play, and he came toward the left flank before passing it to Brozovic, who was close to the box.
The Croatian midfielder had plenty of time to fire a powerful striker through the defenders. Milinkovic-Savic got a hand at it and could have done better.

Inzaghi did not take much time to make substitutions after the start of the second half. Lautaro Martinez came off as the Argentine striker has to be fresh for the final. Barella came on for Calhanoglu, and the substitutes showed instant impact, as Dzeko’s shot was just wide of Torino’s goal.
Brozovic had a brilliant game all around as the Croatian was helping in the build-up by dropping. Also, he was making forward runs when the strikers dropped deep.
Cordaz got a rare chance in the final match as he replaced Handanovic, and Acerbi came on for Bastoni. The Italian keeper made a terrific stop to deny Sanabria from close range. Inter almost doubled their lead, as Dzeko went past in a rapid counter.
The Bosnian striker’s pass was slightly heavy for Lukaku, but the Belgian striker gave it back to Dzeko. However, the former Roma forward could not keep his shot on target as it hit the post. Inter managed to keep their lead intact as they head into the most important game of the decade with another win.
