Milan - Turin prediction and analysis
On Friday night, Milan will try to end the nightmare streak they have been in in recent weeks.
The team from Milan hosts Torino in the opening match of the new round in the Italian Serie A.
The crisis at the Rossoneri is really serious. They have lost 4 in a row. And they haven't won in 7 games already.
However, the board said that head coach Stefano Pioli remains in his post for now.
Milan is the team that won the title in Italy last season.
And now he is facing the threat of not being able to qualify for the next edition of the Champions League .
However, Pioli will get a chance to put things right in the next few games.
As this fight could turn out to be decisive for his fate.
The Bulls will try to make the most of the Milan crisis and at least get a draw here.
Moreover, the Torino team is on a streak of 3 consecutive games without a loss against the Rossoneri (1-2-0).
Including 2 successes in the first 2 games against them this season - for the cup after extra time and for the championship.
Milan - statistics and info
Milan is in 6th place in the Serie A standings . But it is still very close to the top four positions in the table.
However, the Rossoneri are in a deep crisis at the moment.
They are winless in their previous 7 matches in all competitions. Having suffered consecutive losses in the last 4 of them.
Milan lost 1-0 in the derby against Inter last weekend.
In fact, the difference in the score between the teams deserved to be greater.
As Inter had 15 shots on goal while Milan had just four and none on target.
Stefano Pioli has big problems in defense. His players conceded 15 goals in the last 5 matches.
On the other hand, AC Milan scored only 2 goals in the previous 4 matches.
Fikayo Tomori, Ismael Benasser, Alessandro Florenzi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mike Meinian are injured.
Turin - statistics and info
Torino is having a good season so far.
After Juventus' punishment, the Bulls are now not too far from the places in the Europa zone.
But in order to reach the Top 6, they must put in maximum effort in the remaining matches.
Toro have lost just one of their previous four games in all competitions (2-1-1).
In the last of these, they won 1-0 at home to Udinese.
It was an even match. But in the end, Ivan Juric's players took important 3 points.
I would say that Torino have a solid defense. They have conceded just 5 goals in their last 6 matches in all competitions.
Nemanja Radonić, Ivan Ilić, Valentino Lazaro and David Zima are injured and will not play in the upcoming match.
