Fresh off an emphatic 3-0 win over Juventus at Turin, top-four chasing AC Milan now hope to claim back-to-back wins in the Serie A when they meet a still struggling Torino at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino on Thursday. The match is scheduled to start at 12:15 AM IST.
The hosts were held to a 1-1 draw by Hellas Verona last time out and will aim to quickly return to winning ways in the Italian league, while the visitors kept their hopes for a top four finish alive when they claimed an emphatic 3-1 victory over defending champions Juventus to climb to third in the standings. The wins also pipped them level on points with second-place Atalanta and two points above Napoli.
The Rossoneri despite floundering in their title challenge, have enjoyed a stellar campaign. Meanwhile, Torino have struggled for results for most of the season, resulting in their poor league position. And considering the class and quality in both squads, AC Milan are sure to cruise to a comfortable win.
