AC Milan played their second game in Turin this week against Torino and came away with a massive victory. Milan had not won in Turin since 2012 and came away with a massive 7-0 victory. The victory is the 9th biggest win in the history of the club. The win was an important step to clinching a Champions League place as the Rossoneri now need just one more win to secure a return to Europe’s elite competition.

Milan started the game strong as Brahim Diaz dribbled around the Torino midfield and laid off the ball for Theo Hernandez who whacked in a insane shot from the edge of the box to open the scoring. A short while later, Sam Castillejo was brought down in the box giving Milan a penalty. Franck Kessie stepped up and buried it calmly following his miss last time out. There were another couple of chances as Castillejo hit the post but the first half ended 2-0 with Ismael Bennacer being withdrawn at the break for getting a yellow card.

The second half kicked off with Milan taking control and hammering Torino with counter after counter. Milan pressed high and Kessie won the ball from an interception before perfectly playing in Brahim Diaz who easily tapped in for 3-0. Next a counter formed where Ante Rebic played an exceptional through ball for Hernandez who chipped the keeper for 4-0. Next a good exchange between Hakan Calhanoglu and Rade Krunic opened space for the Bosnian to play in Rebic who smashed the ball in at the front post. Another counter opportunity saw Rafael Leao storm down the pitch with pace but unselfishly square the ball to Rebic who tapped into an empty goal for 6-0. Finally, the last goal came from a Diogo Dalot cross which Krunic passed across the face of the goal for Rebic to bumble in with his knee to cap off a huge 7-0 victory.

Rebic scored a 12 minute hat trick and once again hit at least 10 goals for Milan in just the second half of the season. Donnarumma managed to keep a clean sheet with an incredible point blank save whilst the rest of the squad stat padded ahead of the summer.
