Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
Milan and Torino face each other for the second time in just four days. The Rossoneri recorded a routine 2-0 win over Il Toro in the Serie A at the weekend, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic making his return from injury. Ibra is likely to lead the line for Milan against Torino, while fit-again Hakan Calhanoglu should be recalled to the starting XI as well. Both Krunic and Rebic have been tested positive for coronavirus, while Bennacer, Gabbia, and Saelemaekers remain in the recovery room.
Torino boss Marco Giampaolo has a full squad to choose from, but seeing that the Rossoneri are enjoying a season to remember, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Turin empty-handed. You should bear In mind that Torino have not defeated Milan at Stadio San Siro since September 2000 when the two teams met in the Italian Cup.
