Joe Hart goalkeeping howlers for Torino gift draw to Inter Milan

19/03/2017

Joe Hart gifted Inter Milan both their goals but Torino managed to hold Stefano Pioli's side to a 2-2 draw in Serie A on Saturday.

Hart's first mistake allowed Geoffrey Kondogbia to score before Torino fought back with goals from Daniele Baselli and Afriyie Acquah. However, another error from the England goalkeeper saw Antonio Candreva level.

Inter are fifth, five points behind third-placed Napoli and the final qualifying position for the Champions League.

The match had been billed as the battle between Serie A's top goal scorers. Torino and Italy forward Andrea Belotti led the league with 22, two more than Inter captain Mauro Icardi.

Icardi had the ball in the back of the net in the eighth minute but the Argentine was offside from Ever Banega's through ball.

Inter did go in front in the 27th minute when Kondogbia's effort squirmed between Hart's hands.

The lead lasted just six minutes before Baselli was left unmarked to head in after a corner was flicked on by Cristian Molinaro.

Belotti may not have got on the scoresheet but he helped set up Torino's second with a cross-field pass to Juan Iturbe, who pulled back for Acquah to curl into the top left corner just before the hour.

Torino's lead lasted even less than Inter's as the visitors leveled three minutes later when Hart completely missed a cross and Candreva fired into an empty net.

Hart made some amends with a great save to keep out Eder's effort with nine minutes remaining.
