Torino will look to make it two wins in two league games for the first time since mid-January when they welcome title-chasing AC Milan to Turin on Sunday.
The mid-table hosts come into this tie on the back of a 1-0 win over Salernitana. The win finally ended their eight-match winless run in Serie A (SA), keeping their chances of a top-half finish alive for now.
The win also saw them earn their first penalty of the season – although captain Andrea Belotti needed two attempts to bury it. They will now hope that the penalty and the win are a sign of better things, while they build on that win.
However, their home form heading into this fixture doesn’t suggest that they will win, given that they have won nine of their last four home games, despite scoring first in three of them.
Possible Torino starting line-up
Etrit Berisha; Armando Izzo, Bremer, Ricardo Rodriguez; Stephen Singo, Rolando Mandragora, Sasa Lukic, Mergim Vojvoda; Tommaso Pobega, Josip Brekalo; Andra Belotti.
Injured: Koffi Djidji, Mohamed Fares, Dennis Praet, Antonio Sanabria
Doubtful: Simone Edera
Meanwhile, AC Milan will be desperate to get back to winning ways when they face Torino on Sunday.
The visitors’ chances of winning their first Scudetto since the 2010/11 season was dealt a huge blow last Monday when they were held to a goalless draw with Bologna.
Despite registering 33 attempts at goal, Milan could not break down a stubborn Bologna side at the San Siro as they missed the chance to consolidate their lead atop the standings. However, they at least extended their unbeaten run to 11 matches (six wins and five draws) and also recorded their fifth consecutive clean sheet in that game.
With manager Stefano Pioli predicting “it will be a difficult season until the end”, Milan will now have to ensure that his words doesn’t ring true in this particular fixture.
Given that they are on an eight-match unbeaten run in SA away matches (W6, D2) they will fancy their chances of getting a decent result in this fixture to keep their lead at the top of the table for at least another weekend.
Possible AC Milan starting line-up
Mike Maignan, Davide Calabria, Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori, Theo Hernandez, Franck Kessie, Sandro Tonali, Alexis Saelemaekers, Ismaël Bennacer, Rafael Leao; Olivier Giroud.
Injured: Alessandro Florenzi, Simon Kjaer, Daniel Maldini
Doubtful: Alessio Romagnoli
Torino 1-2 AC Milan
