Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Following a convincing 2-0 win over Bologna in their opener, Milan will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Torino in the Serie A round 2. The Rossoneri are eager to regain Scudetto and a win over Torino will surely help them move one step closer to meeting the goal. A man to watch in the home team will be summer signing Christian Pulisic, who opened his goal-scoring account against the Rossoblu, whilst midfielder Ismael Bennacer remains on the sidelines with a knee injury.
Il Toro, on the other hand, played out a boring goalless draw with Cagliari in the opening match of the season. Ivan Juric’s men are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Milan’s party at Stadio San Siro. As for the away side, defender Koffi Djidji continues to miss out with a hernia problem.
Highlighted Player (Alessandro Florenzi):
Alessandro Florenzi is probably the most impressive product of AS Roma youth academy since Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi, and the full-back has already developed into an important player for both club and country.
Capable of operating as both right-back and right winger, the talented footballer is probably best remembered from scoring a marvellous goal from half-way line in the Champions League clash against Barcelona, but there is much more to him than an occasional wonder strike. While he usually played as a winger during his early career, Florenzi switched to attacking full-back at both Roma and Italy national team, and that proved a very good move for his career.
While helping the Gialorossi return to old glory days, the right-back left his mark on international stage as well, especially impressing since Antonio Conte took over the reigns in the national team. Despite the fact that he has yet to realise his full potential, Florenzi already boasts an impressive top flight experience and he is predicted a bright future in the game.
