Venue: Stadio San Siro (Milano).
Milan and Torino are set to close the Matchday No 15 on Sunday evening at San Siro. Both teams were successful last weekend and they will head into this high on confidence aiming to snatch an important victory over respective top-half rivals.
Rossoneri took advantage of Lazio’s slip-up to break back into the top four in the Serie A standings with a 2-1 victory over Parma seven days ago at San Siro. It was team’s second consecutive victory following the 5-2 drubbing of Luxembourg’s Dudelange in Europa League last Thursday. Gennaro Gattuso’s troops showed a strong fighting spirits coming back from a goal down to beat Parma with second-half strikes from Patrick Cutrone and Franck Kessie (penalty).
AC Milan vs Torino: Head-to-head
Milan have always been a tricky opposition for Torino.
Toro won just 1 of 32 head to head encounters with Rossoneri.
Milan have a brutal record in H2H games with Torino at San Siro where they won 12 and drew 5 of 17.
Nevertheless, we have to say that each of past three head to head affairs between these two liked ended without a winner.
AC Milan vs Torino: Prediction
Torino have been playing hot and cold throughout the season. They surprisingly took only a single pint from games against Parma (1-2 defeat) and Cagliari (0-0 draw), but managed to rebound with a 2-1 victory over Genoa last Sunday. It was not the best of their performances, though, as they barely managed to see off the struggling opposition with an extra man on the pitch for more than an hour.
Nonetheless, it is interesting to mention Torino are unbeaten away from home this term. They won two and drew as many as five of seven league matches on the road. They shipped only six goals along the way.
Milan have a fine home record with five wins, one draw and one loss (to Juventus) and we see them as favourites following Torino’s dismal displays in the last couple of weeks. Also, Milan were super dominant in the head to head history which all adds on the value of the 1.85 odds offered for the home win here.
