Our football match prediction:
As expected, Milan failed to spoil Napoli’s party at Stadio San Paolo at the weekend and, as things stand now, the Rossoneri are unlikely to win their first Scudetto since 2011. The club chiefs did well to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window, but that does not seem to be helping the team join the race for the title. Milan sit in seventh place in the Serie A standings ahead of Sunday’s football game against Torino and they are no less than 11 points behind the Champions League berth. The Rossoneri face a must-win situation against Il Toro, but you should bear in mind that they failed to score in previous four home games in all competitions. Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men, on the other hand, played out back-to-back draws with the likes of Inter and Chievo in previous two league fixtures and they are only one point behind Milan ahead of Matchday 14. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils at Stadio San Siro.
