Time: 2.45pm ET / 20.45 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan; Italy
A classic "meaningless" end-of-season game: Milan and Torino are mathematically out from the chase to the last European spot so they're playing, cynically speaking, only for dignity and for players' market value. Nothing to play for means tactical news: Inzaghi's going to send on the field for the first time since his last injury Il Faraone, Stephan El Shaarawy, as the left winger due to Bonaventura and Menez's suspensions. Another tactical change is Mattia Destro sitting on the bench and Giampaolo Pazzini starting.
Last time we met Torino in January 10, 2015 we were completely outplayed: they had 65% of ball possession, shot 20 times, 5 on target, but scoring only one goal after 81', equalizing Menez's penalty (scored after 3'). It was a lucky game for AC Milan because they earned an undeserved point.
