Torino

Torino, on the other hand, boasts a formidable home record, having lost just twice at home all season.

Ivan Juric's team is known for its defensive solidity, conceding only two goals in their last nine home matches.

This defensive prowess will be crucial in nullifying Milan's high-octane attack.

Team News

AC Milan

AC Milan faces some injury concerns ahead of this clash. Winger Samu Chukwueze is out for the season, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek is a major doubt.

However, first-choice goalkeeper Mike Maignan is set to return, bolstering their defence.

Matteo Gabbia is suspended, which means a defensive shuffle is likely with Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori, and Malick Thiaw competing for spots.

Torino

Torino will rely heavily on Duvan Zapata, who has been directly involved in nearly half of their goals this season.

Despite recent injury worries, Zapata and Alessandro Buongiorno are expected to start.

However, Nikola Vlasic, Gvidas Gineitis, Koffi Djidji, and Perr Schuurs are sidelined with injuries.

Prediction

Given Milan's recent form and Torino's defensive resilience, this match is likely to be closely contested.

Milan's attacking firepower, led by Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leao, faces a stern test against Torino's stout defence.

A low-scoring draw seems the most probable outcome, with both teams sharing the spoils.
