Vincenzo Montella will have a tough task ahead of him. Facing a strong Torino side led by former Milan manager Sinisa Mihajlovic, Montella will have to choose who he wants to rest for the tough stretch of games coming up in rapid succession.
Milan’s Coppa Italia run may end early due to Torino’s unexpected form. Will Montella focus on the Coppa Italia or will he focus more on securing Milan a spot in European qualification? From the look of the probable lineup, it looks as though he’s opting for the latter.
