Our match prediction:
Milan and Torino face each other at Stadio San Siro in the opening match of the season. The Rossoneri are eager to bring glory days back to San Siro, but the team’s main goal is to finish the season in top 3. Milan kick off the new Serie A campaign with a game against Torino and it remains to be seen if Vincenzo Montella’s men are capable of recording a win over Il Toro in Sunday’s football match. The club chiefs did not make too many changes to the squad in the summer transfer window and Carlos Bacca will continue to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Torino struggled on the road in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign and we predict that Sinisa Mihajlovic’s troops are going to return home empty-handed. Milan are on a five-game winless run at home ground and they are desperate to put an end to the negative trend.
