Milan is welcoming Torino to San Siro in round 17 in the Italian Serie A.
Well, it happened, Milan has lost their first game of the Serie A season, but the good news is that Inter lost as well, and Milan is still at the top of the table with 37 points, 35 scored goals, and 19 conceded goals. Milan was playing against Juventus in their last game, and they have had 42% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 86% of the correct passes. After losing in the 18th minute, Milan tied the score in the 41st minute. The second half was not good for Milan, and they have conceded 2 more goals. Milan has lost this match 1-3. Milan has a lot of injury problems, and in addition to Bennancer, Gabbia, Ibrahimovic, Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu got injured, while Rebic and Krunic are positive for Coronavirus. Ibrahimovic has scored 10 goals for Milan so far this season, while Kessie has added 5 goals. Calhanoglu has 6 assists. It was bound for Milan to lose a game sooner or later, and it's better for it to happen now when they are at the top with the advantage than when they are chasing some other team. I still think Milan is one of the best teams in the league, and I would like to see them winning the title.
Torino has snapped their winless streak with a nice win against Parma on the road a week ago, but they were not able to win in their latest Serie A game against Hellas Verona. Torino has had 45% of ball possession in that game, 2 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 72% of the correct passes. This was a tough game for both teams, and while Verona got ahead in the 67th minute, Torino was able to tie the score in the 84th minute. The final result was 1-1. Thanks to their solid run, Torino was able to crawl out of the relegation zone, and they are now in 17th place with 12 points, 26 scored goals, and 33 conceded goals so far. Belotti has been in fantastic form for Torino, and he has scored 9 goals and added 4 assists. The problem for Torino is that when Belotti is not scoring, neither does Torino because they don’t have many other offensive options. There are no injuries or suspensions for Torino, but Rincon is in danger of being suspended because of the yellow cards. Torino has enough quality to stay out of the relegation zone, and I see them in Serie A next season as well.
When playing at home, Milan has not lost to Torino in their last 19 games. The trends are heavily on Milan’s side in this matchup, and Milan will be looking to get back on the winning track to stay ahead of Inter in the Serie A table. I’m taking Milan at home.
