Picking up a 1-1 draw in the first-leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final in midweek, AC Milan will turn their attention back to Serie A duties when they welcome a struggling Torino to the San Siro on Monday night.
While I Rossoneri still might be trying to recover from a woeful start to the 2019/2020 campaign, Stefano Pioli’s men have lost just one of their last eight matches across all competitions and have their sights set on mounting a late European charge.
On the flip side, putting in another woeful display in their 3-1 defeat at home against Sampdoria last weekend, Torino have continued on what has been an embarrassing run of form.
Freefalling out of the top half of the Serie A table, Monday’s guests have lost their last five matches on the bounce and they could still be haunted by their most recent meeting against AC.
When the two sides faced off in the Coppa Italia last month, I Rossoneri picked up a 4-2 win and a similar betting offers like home victory can be found priced at 8/11 with Coral.
A golden chance for AC

Opening the weekend sat just two points adrift of completing a remarkable turnaround and finding a route back into the top-six, fans around the San Siro will be hugely excited by the on-going success of Croatian international, Ante Rebic.
Once again finding the net against the Old Lady on Thursday night, the former Eintracht Frankfurt striker has formed an eye-catching partnership with Zlatan Ibrahimovic following the Swede’s Italian return.
Now bagging back-to-back strikes, the 26-year-old has also recorded five goals in his last six appearances across all competitions.
Rightfully to be excited by Torino’s arrival on Monday night, you might be interested to know that the red-hot Rebic can be found priced at 13/10 with Ladbrokes to extend on that tally at the San Siro.
Putting in what was another woeful display in their 3-1 hammering against Sampdoria last week, the mood in Moreno Longo’s camp couldn’t be any lower.
Enduring a five-match losing run, including a shocking 7-0 hammering at home against Atalanta last month, Monday’s guests have begun freefalling down the Serie A table and have a growing reputation for their issues on the road.
Booed off by the traveling support in their 4-0 defeat against relegation scrappers Leece, the Bulls have lost their last three matches away from the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
Unsurprisingly, a huge part of Torino’s woeful run has come down to some rather glaring issues at the back.
Shipping another trio of goals last week and also conceding four when they last faced off against AC last month, Il Toro have shipped a stunning 20 goals on their losing run.
Conceding at least a pair of goals in each of their five defeats, Torino can be found priced at 4/6 with Paddy Power to suffer a similar fate and be breached at least twice on Monday.
