Torino will travel to Milan on Thursday for their Coppa Italia clash at San Siro, hoping they can surprise an in-form Milan side and go through to the Quarterfinals.
Milan will host Torino for their second home match in just four days, as they hope to build on their Supercoppa success over Juventus and the last week’s Serie A win over Cagliari (1-0). Vincenzo Montella has built a true fort at Giuseppe Meazza and we’ll back them to continue the fine streak at 11/10 with Ladbrokes
Torino have finally picked up their form after a poor spell of form since early December, as they’ve finished the year with a 1-0 win over Genoa and started 2017 with a goalless draw on a difficult away day at Sassuolo last week. They will certainly be worthy challengers in one of the derby clashes on the day, but Rossoneri have been in great form in front of their home crowd and it doesn’t seem Toro will be able to cause serious damage and end their Coppa Italia campaign there!
Keeping a clean sheet in two of their last outings was highly important for Sinisa Mihajlovic after Torino conceded ten goals in the three matches before, showing the fine defensive displays crucial for their success. Milan have been in great form defensively themselves as they’ve conceded just three goals in five difficult matches behind them, so we expect similar performances on Thursday and we’ll go for Under 2.5 goals FT at Evens with bet365
The visitors haven’t been able to convert their chances in Sassuolo and with 14 shots wide we’ve seen them rather uninspired in the final third. We expect to see them struggling against a confident Rossoneri defence and Milan to keep a clean sheet also looks an attractive bet at 9/4 with William Hill
Carlos Bacca has finally found the net against Cagliari and ending his three-month drought could prove momentous for Milan, as they are in for a difficult schedule to follow. We expect to see him lead the attacking line on Thursday too and we’ll back him to make it into a streak by scoring anytime and possibly untangling this one at 6/5 with BetVictor
