Milan haven't won a game in Turin since 2012 against neither Juveuntus nor Torino. Giampaolo has never beaten Walter Mazzarri in his time in Serie A. Neither of the curses were overcome by Milan on Thursday night as they lost 2-1 with a late brace from Andrea Belotti.

Milan took the lead in the first half with a Piatek penalty but then failed to capitalise on a number of occasions. Torino hit back hard after the 70th minute and demonstrated the importance of putting games to bed. Giampaolo's side did much better with the new signings but mental fragility lost the tie.
