Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
A spot in the Coppa Italia semis will be at stake when Milan and Torino face each other at Stadio San Siro on Tuesday evening. The Rossoneri have been producing fine performances in all competitions ever since Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to the club, and, no doubt, the hosts are high on spirits following their third consecutive league win.
Milan did well to beat Brescia 1-0 in the Serie A at the weekend, and they should take advantage of the fact that Torino experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 7-0 loss to Atalanta. The situation in the away team’s dressing room is alarming ahead of the trip to Milano; therefore, we do not believe that Torino are capable of spoiling Milan’s party at Stadio San Siro. Ante Rebic, who scored the winner against Brescia, will be yet another man to watch in the home team.
Highlighted Player (Hakan Calhanoglu):
Hakan Calhanoglu is another one in the long line of Turkish footballers who were born in Germany, so it is hardly surprising he came to prominence thanks to his performances in Bundesliga. The attacking midfielder with great vision and very good goalscoring record started his professional career at Karlsruher, scoring impressive 17 goals in 50 league outings to earn a move to Bundesliga side Hamburg.
The spell at Imtech Arena was merely a stepping stone for bigger things as 11 goals in his debut top flight campaign persuaded Bayer Leverkusen to splash nearly €15 million on his services. That proved a very good investment as Calhanoglu continued the rich vein of form, and it is now a matter of time before he joins one of European powerhouses.
The midfield maestro had a bright start to his career in the Turkey national team, scoring 5 goals in first 16 caps, and chances are he will become a leader for Milli Takim in the foreseeable future.
