AC Milan to end miserable run

AC Milan seeks to finally end their recent miserable run, when they face Torino, who gave them a defeat in Coppa Italia. As the defending champions of the Serie A, Milan is hopeful to put an end to their unfortunate run in the league. Milan avoids losses as much as possible as it may hinder them from entering the top four. As for Torino, they are the ones who eliminated Milan in the Coppa Italia. Coming into this game, this squad is actually from a 1-0 win against Udinese. With that, many expects Torino to have a good momentum in this game. These two teams meet on February 11, 2023, at 3:45 AM (GMT+8), with Milan as hosts.

In the league table, the hosts are at the sixth spot of the league table with 38 points. However, the problem is the fact that they are not doing well recently. If this squad continues to play that way, it will be harder for them to defend their title. A win for the hosts will give them additional three points, and will improve their position to the third. On the other hand, the visitors are just sitting below the hosts, with 30 points. However, they only have a one-point advantage from the teams below them. With that, they need to win this game to have more edge against other teams.

Milan already lost to four of their last five games, which is why they are hopeful that they can end that run right now. This run will not help them to defend their Serie A title, making them eager to improve their games. Their opponent in this game is the team that kicked them out for Coppa Italia. As they meet the same opponent once again, they eye revenge, bouncing back from their current results. During their loss on their three previous outing, they conceded 12 times. Due to their recent results, this squad is under pressure to make a turnaround of their current results. This is what they need though if they want to continue their fight in defending their title.

It is just unfortunate that they will be without Bennacer, Tomori, and Maignan in this match, where they are much-needed. Luckily, Zlatan Ibrahimovic finally returned after his ACL injury.

Serie A: Torino

When Torino defeated AC Milan in the Coppa Italia, they ended the 17-game unbeaten road game run by Milan. As they meet in the Serie A, this team is hoping to end this game with the same result. Although Torino is just below Milan, they still have eight points that separates them. However, if this squad wants the same result, they need to address their inconsistency. It has been their number one problem in the contest, if they can address this issue, they will have a better chance in this game. However, the more they lose their games, the more they lose their opportunity of playing in the European. This squad is doing well as they only have one defeat from their last six league away games.

Due to a thigh problem, Pietro Pellegri is set to miss this game. He will be joined by Samuele Ricci, who sustained calf injury, while Valentino Lazaro, and David Zama are still not playing in this game.

Prediction:

AC Milan (1.5)
Odds: -0.92
