Torino vs AC Milan Prediction & Match Preview
Thursday, September 26 – 15:00 EST – Stadio Olimpico di Torino
After starting off the new season with two consecutive wins, Torino went on to lose against Lecce and Sampdoria. The hosts will not be happy with the way they performed recently, and will look to return to winning ways in front of their fans. On that note, I Granata will be pleased with the fact that they came out with a 2-0 win against AC Milan at home last season. That was their first win in 23 matches against I Rossoneri. Prior to that result, Torino and AC Milan had drawn four consecutive matches. The home team will hope that their leading goal scorer Andrea Belotti will find the back of the net. The Italian striker has two goals to his name so far this season.
On the other hand, AC Milan are coming off a disappointing performance in the Derby della Madonnina against Inter. They were lackluster throughout the whole game and failed to impress their fans. The Rossoneri are sitting in 11th place with 6 points to their name after defeating Brescia and Hellas Verona. They will need an impressive performance if they are to get anything out of Torino at the Stadio Olimpico. Furthermore, I Rossoneri have only scored two goals in four matches so far this season. They will rely once again on their main striker Krzysztof Piątek to find the back of the net. Overall, we are expecting a tight match between the two teams. With history on their side, we believe that AC Milan will walk away with some points in this match.
OUR PICK: AC MILAN OR DRAW DOUBLE CHANCE
