Players to Watch

Brahim Diaz

Diaz will be starting as Calhanoglu has been ruled out. The youngster has done well whenever he has started but will need to prove himself in Serie A now. The attacking midfielder adds pace and flair but will now need to set up his fellow attackers to allow Milan to get onto the score sheet early and consistently throughout the game.

Sandro Tonali

Tonali will be kicking himself for picking up such an unnecessary red card against Benevento thus missing the Juventus clash. He will need to prove to his teammates and the fans that he is reliable thus will need to put in a hell of a performance against Torino. He will need to keep Rincon quiet and may also have to manage Meite in the middle of the park.

Andrea Belotti

Torino are overly reliant on Belotti hence if Milan can contain the striker then the Rossoneri have a very good chance of picking up a victory. Belotti has 9 goals this season as well as 4 assists thus is the key man for Giampaolo’s men. Kjaer and Romagnoli will need to ensure they stick to him and limit his space as he is a craft striker with incredible finishing.

Prediction: Milan 2 - 1 Torino
