Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
A place in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals will be at stake when Milan and Torino square off against each other at Stadio San Siro. The Rossoneri were on the verge of beating Roma in the Serie A derby, but Jose Mourinho’s troops eventually scored two late goals to pick up one point from the match. Milan aim to return to winning ways as soon as possible, and we predict that they will prove their worth on the field. Tommaso Pobega is pushing for a start after getting his name on the scoresheet against the Giallorossi, whereas all Rebic, Origi, Florenzi, and Ibrahimovic remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Il Toro, on the other hand, kicked off 2023 with back-to-back draws against Verona and Salernitana. Torino defeated Milan at home in their last meeting in the Serie A, but we are tempted to put our money on Stefano Pioli’s troops this time out as they were more than unfortunate not to beat Roma at the weekend. All Aina, Ilkhan, and Pellegri have been struggling with injuries of late.
