AC Milan fought hard to beat Torino 1-0 and bounce back from their loss in the derby to Inter last week. Ante Rebic continued his stunning form with another winning goal whilst Samu Castillejo provided another crucial assist. The squad managed to face Inter, Juventus and Torino in the span of 9 days and performed admirably against all.
The squad played with grit and created numerous opportunities for themselves. Castillejo and Ibrahimovic missed sitters in the second half. More significantly, 20 year old Matteo Gabbia made his Serie A debut replacing an injured Simon Kjaer just before half time.
