Soccer-Eder rescues Inter's unbeaten Serie A record

MILAN, Nov 5 (Reuters) - Inter Milan stayed unbeaten after 12 games of the Serie A season after Eder rescued a 1-1 draw at home to Torino on Sunday.

Iago Falque silenced the crowd of more than 71,000, who braved the wet conditions for the lunchtime kickoff when he burst past two defenders to fire Torino ahead on the hour.

Joel Obi headed wide from Adem Ljajic’s free kick, missing a chance to put Torino further ahead, and Inter made the most of the let-off when Eder turned in Mauro Icardi’s header from close range in the 79th minute.

Matias Vecino smashed another effort against the bar as he nearly grabbed a late win for Inter, who were fielding an unchanged starting line-up for the fifth match in a row.

Luciano Spalletti’s side have 30 points, one behind leaders Napoli who are away to Chievo later on Sunday, and two ahead of Juventus and Lazio, who were also still to play. (Reporting by Brian Homewood, editing by Ed Osmond)
