AC Milan: Almost Perfect at Home
Having thrown away a two-goal lead against Roma on Sunday, the pressure is very much on the hosts as they look to maintain hopes of a first Coppa Italia triumph since 2003. The Rossoneri were leading 2-0 thanks to goals from Pierre Kalulu and Tommaso Pobega with less than five minutes remaining when Roger Ibanez and Tammy Abraham struck to secure a point for the Giallorossi.
The two dropped points against Roma means that AC Milan is now sitting seven points behind Napoli who are at the top of Serie A. Defensive issues have very much been an issue for last season´s Scudetto winners, with Milan keeping just two clean sheets in their previous 13 league matches.
At the San Siro, Milan has allowed at least one goal in eight of their last 10 competitive home matches so if you’re betting online. you should expect them to concede against Torino. Milan has a lengthy injury list that includes Alessandro Florenzi, Mike Maignan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Davide Calabria, Alexis Saelemaekers and Simon Kjaer. Coach Stefano Pioli is likely to make one or two changes in the starting lineup, particularly considering the frustrating nature of Milan´s draw with AS Roma on Sunday.
Torino: Decent Form
Sitting 14 points clear of the relegation zone approaching the season’s midway point, Torino is not facing another relegation battle this spring. However, any chance of European qualification also appears slim due to the caliber of clubs ahead of them in the standings and a shortage of firepower up front. Winning the Italian Cup is probably their only chance to earn a European spot.
They’ve lost four of their last seven Serie A away games, winning just one in the process – a run that followed a seven-match unbeaten run on the road. Surely, that form must change soon if they are to trouble the top seven.
Only Pietro Pellegri and Ola Aina are set to miss out through injury for the visitors. Torino´s recent improvements, coupled with Milan´s defensive weaknesses, should offer us an entertaining match so we’re backing the overs in our soccer picks and parlays. Head coach Juric is expected to name a settled side, with the visitors losing just one of their last seven matches in Serie A.
