Match Time: 20:45 Italy time, GMT +1
Match Location: San Siro, Milano
Milan will play against Torino again in San Siro but this time it is in Serie A. Milan played Torino 3 weeks ago in Coppa Italia where they had a very exiting and competitive game in which Milan managed to score a late equalizer and secure the win in extra time.
Milan played with 4-4-2 formation in January but Pioli made a slight change by playing 4-4-1-1 with Calhaoglu behind Ibrahimovic and moving Rebic to the left. It is a very effective change where Milan started to play high pressure and quick counterattacks. Calhaoglu is doing great in his natural position while Kessie’s rule has changed which made him better, too. The team is improving overall but they still have a long way to reach the top. After a loss and a draw, the Rossoneri must get back on track to reach a European spot.
Torino, on the other hand, are not doing well as they lost their last four games and conceded a total of 20 goals. They are missing their best defender Izzo while Milan have to manage the game without Conti, Krunic, Duarte, and Biglia. Milan are the favorite to win the game on papers.
