Torino V AC Milan Preview

After last Saturday's disappointing defeat against Juventus in the Derby Della Mole, Torino face another tough fixture against a resurgent AC Milan side on Sunday afternoon.

The Granata will be without the suspended Kamil Glik so he should be replaced in central defence by Valerio Di Cesare, whereas elsewhere, Gianluca Sansone could be given a start upfront in place of Riccardo Meggiorini.

AC Milan have struggled this season since the departures of Zlatan Ibrahimović and Thiago Silva in the summer, but after winning their last two games (including a 1-0 victory against Juve) they have moved up to 7th place. However, Massimiliano Allegri will be without a number of key players - as Riccardo Montolivo, Kevin Constant and Alexandre Pato are all injured, whereas Kevin-Prince Boateng is suspended.

Torino have not beaten Milan in their last nine attempts, with their last victory coming eleven years ago thanks to a goal from Cristiano Lucarelli.

Prediction
Torino 1-1 AC Milan
