Milan looked really well in the first part of the local derby game away to Inter and even had the double lead thanks to goals from Rebic and Ibrahimovic late in the first halftime.
However, as soon as they conceded the first goal early in the second halftime, it’s like their entire game plan collapsed. Within three minutes they were leveled up, while the team didn’t exist much in an offensive way till the end of the clash suffering quite deserving 4:3 loss in the end.
This defeat broke their run of five consecutive undefeated matches back then, as the team now remains three points behind Europa League placed Verona.
Last Thursday night, they gave out a really good fight at home against Juventus in the first leg of the Italian Coppa semi-finals match, ending the game with a 1:1 result. They had more of the ball possession, but looked really well in the transition and got the lead via Rebic in the 61st minute, but stood to play with a man less ten minuted later.
Finally, Ronaldo leveled up from the penalty kick in the added time, a bit maybe undeservedly since Milan probably deserved two goals in this match out of the chances they created.
AC Milan team news
Defender Conti (14/0) is suspended for this one, while injured remains, central back Duarte (5/0) and defensive midfielder Biglia (7/0). Neither midfielder Krunic (9/0) is ready with a muscle injury.
Torino suffered yet another defeat last time out, back then it was a 1:3 home loss to Sampdoria last Saturday evening.
However, it was they who took the lead in the 55th minute via Verdi, but were unable to hold onto it, as their guests completely changed the momentum with three goals inside nine minutes (twice via Ramirez and a penalty kick by Quagliarella) from 70th to 79th minute.
With this loss Torino continued the very ugly streak, as they have no four consecutive defeats in Serie A. Such a run kept them completely away from the battle for European positions, while the biggest worry is seventeen goals conceded during these four rounds.
Torino team news
The guests can’t count at suspended central back Izzo (22/1). Forward Milico (5/0) is sidelined injured but with little influence anyway.
Torino has conceded at least 3 goals in their last 3 matches (Serie A).
Torino seems as vulnerable as possible at the moment and with Milan definitely gaining more stable momentum against mediocre teams, everything except a home victory with more than a couple of goals scored in Torino’s net will be a surprise.
