Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Milan will be looking to make amends for a heart-breaking 3-1 loss to Juventus when they host Torino at their Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Matchday 17. Despite the defeat in the Serie A derby, the Rossoneri remained in top position in the standings, but they need to get back on course as soon as possible if they are to put an end to Juve’s dominance in the Italian top flight.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic remains in the recovery room, as well as Gabbia, Bennacer, and Saelemaekers. Both Rebic and Krunic have been tested positive for coronavirus. Il Toro, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team outplaying Parma 3-0 on the road, while sharing the spoils with Verona in midweek. Boss Marco Giampaolo has a full squad to choose from, and seeing that Milan head into the match with the lack of confidence, share of spoils is on the cards.
