High-priced stalemate in Milan

The last few matches have delivered the best results for neither AC Milan nor Torino and both sides will be looking to get the edge. AC Milan has managed 32 points so far and is placed 10th while Torino in 13th placed has 27 points. Milan has not won any of their last three matches. They came from behind to draw with Verona and took the lead against Inter and Juventus but allowed them back to lose and draw respectively.

Milan has not won any of their last three matches. They came from behind to draw with Verona and took the lead against Inter and Juventus but allowed them back to lose and draw respectively. In the most recent match, they were coasting to a 1-0 win over Juventus but conceded a last-minute goal through a penalty. One positive factor they take to this game is that they have scored in each of their last eight matches. Milan has won five of their last 11 matches and have four clean sheets in their last 10 matches and have scored more than one goal in five of their last 10 matches.

They have not lost any of their last eight matches, but five draws bring little progress in terms of chasing top four and curiously four of the last seven meetings between these two sides have ended in draws. Torino has lost five matches on the spin. In their last match, against Sampdoria, they took a 55th-minute lead but in the final 20 minutes conceded thrice. That loss came after a 4-0 dropping at the hands of lowly Lecce. They also met with Milan recently in the Coppa Italia and let a 2-1 lead in the 72nd-minute slip before losing 4-2 in extra time.

All this is testament to their defensive discipline; they have conceded two or more goals in each of their last five matches and only won two while losing six of their last 10 matches. They have not been strong going forward, scoring more than one goal in just two of their last nine matches.

They lost their last three away games, have scored just three goals and conceded 10 in those three. They have four straight losses in the Serie A, conceding 16 goals in the process and in their last 11 away matches in the league, they have four wins and six losses.

They do have two wins in the last three meetings with Milan, who needed a last-minute goal to drive the game into extra time in the cup, before winning 4-2. Torino has lost just once to Milan in the last seven matches. As often as Milan are drawing matches at the moment and with Torino simply trying to avoid another defeat and with a fine record against Zlatan and co., the draw looks the value bet here.
