Our match prediction:
Il Toro failed to materialize their chances against bottom-table Carpi and had to settle for a goalless draw (0-0). Even so, Giampiero Ventura’s charges moved up the scale thanks to Chievo’s defeat in the Derby della Scala. Now they arrive to Milan, hoping for their first ever triumph at San Siro in recent history. Judging by the current displays of Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men, they are up for a difficult task. I Rossoneri suffered a single defeat in their previous ten Serie A fixtures on home turf, while holding in-form Napoli to 1-1 draw at Stadio San Paolo on Monday. Carlos Bacca has been displaying amazing performances in front of the home supporters of late and will present the biggest problem for Torino’s defense. The Serbian manager eyes the European qualifications spot, so we predict the Stadio Olimpico outfit to be a minor obstacle in Milan’s way to their objective, even though the Bull drastically improved their showings on the road in previous two matches.
