Torino staged a superb second-half recovery to heap more Serie A misery on Inter in a 2-2 draw at the San Siro.

Inter appeared on course to bounce back from their opening-weekend defeat at Sassuolo when Ivan Perisic and Stefan de Vrij scored in the first half.

But Torino were a different proposition after the break and Andrea Belotti and Soualiho Meite rewarded their dramatic improvement. Perisic was making his first start since helping Croatia to the World Cup final and swept home Mauro Icardi’s sixth-minute cross.

De Vrij doubled Inter’s lead with a close-range header after 32 minutes, the Dutch defender’s first goal since his summer move from Lazio.

Torino were back in the game when Belotti latched onto Iago Falque’s brilliant diagonal ball 10 minutes after the break and rounded Samir Handanovic to roll the ball into an empty net. 

Meite then equalised from the edge of the box after 68 minutes, with Handanovic pushing the ball onto a post before it crossed the line.

Salvatore Sirigu protected Torino’s point with an outstanding save from Icardi in the final moments.
