In the latest Serie A battle, AC Milan face Torino as they look to hit back hard after their first loss of the season. Who are the main players and key battles to watch out for? Below we take a look at the most likely head to heads that will decide the game in the San Siro.

H2H Key Areas

Center Back vs Left Forward

Armando Izzo vs Jens Hauge

The 28-year-old center back, equally comfortable playing wider as full-back will be a difficult opponent for Hauge in this clash. Hauge has broken his Serie A scoring struggle but has not managed to advance from 1 goal in his 10 appearances so far.

Striker vs Goalkeeper

Simone Verdi vs Gianluigi Donnarumma

1 goal and 2 assists for the nifty forward in 13 games, might not be a great return, but he is capable of bright spots and bringing his team into the game. He will likely drift all over the park, and it will be essential that Gianluigi manages his defense to be aware of anyone losing him and opening up space for Belotti to attack.

Left-back vs Center Back

Ricardo Rodriguez vs Alessio Romagnoli

The former Milan player is always capable of playing in dangerous crosses and passes, even if so far this season he has failed to notch 1 assist in the league. Captain Alessio Romagnoli will need to be careful so that any ball played in, doesn’t find Belotti in the air, as this could be a dangerous area.

H2H Prediction

Izzo Winner

Donnarumma Winner

Romagnoli Winner
