Torino vs AC Milan
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 28 April 2019
Kick-Off 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (Turin).
Torino joined the battle for the top-four finish thanks to a thread of five consecutive games without a defeat in Serie A.
Il Toro won five, drew three and lost just one of past nine league outings. They lost just one of past 13 Serie A affairs, a thread which helped them climb up to 7th place in the ladder.
Walter Mazzarri’s men now have the opportunity to move lock on points with 4th-placed Milan on Sunday evening when these two likes are set to tackle each other in one of the most interesting fixtures of the day.
Milan missed several opportunities to secure the top-four finish. They struggled for goals recently. The lack of attacking creativity caused the streak of just one victory in last seven outings across competitions.
Rossoneri only drew 1-1 away at Parma last weekend and they also suffered Coppa Italia elimination as well after falling 0-1 at home to Lazio on Wednesday night.
Torino vs AC Milan: Head-to-head
Torino will play against the tradition here as they only managed to beat Rossoneri once in last 33 head to head meetings.
Milan won 16 and drew 16 of remaining 32 encounters with Il Toro.
None of past four head to head encounters brought a winner, though.
Teams shared spoils in a goalless draw when they locked horns in this term of Serie A back in mid-December last year.
It was their second goalless draw in last three head to head fixtures.
Torino vs AC Milan: Prediction
Gennaro Gattuso’s troops might likely struggle to create in the final third here at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino as well. Il Toro were very tough to break down lately as they shipped no more than one goal in past three league matches.
Mazzarri’s squad allowed just 16 goals in 16 home clashes in the league so far in the season. Torino are team with most draws out of all Serie A outfits. They shared spoils in 14 of 33 league ties so far.
Looking at both sides’ form going into this clash, draw looks to be the closest of three outcomes. You will hardly make a mistake with the Under 2.5 goals FT pick, though.
Torino vs AC Milan: Bet Tips
