The Rossoneri are looking to continue their winning streak and these Milan-Turin predictions suggest they will succeed. However, La Granata have proved in the past to be a strong opponent for their hosts and on Saturday everything will depend on their defensive stamina.
Chances for Milan vs Torino
1 – Milan win – 3/5
2 – Torino win – 11/2
3 – Under 2.5 goals scored – 13/17
4 – Team to score – 31/40
5 – Christian Pulisic to score anytime – 8/15
Torino will make a short trip east to take on AC Milan at the San Siro on Saturday afternoon. The first match of the season against Cagliari ended goalless, so fans are expecting a more spectacular game this weekend.
Unfortunately for Ivan Yurych’s team, on Saturday they will face a difficult club Milan, which has grown significantly over the summer. The Rossoneri barely had to cut out first gear to beat Bologna on Monday night and are favorites to score all three points at the San Siro.
However, guests should not be ruled out, as Torino have won two of their last three meetings with Milan, despite the fact that in all of these matches he acted as an outsider. Juric ensured that his team remained compact defensively, making good use of set pieces and counterattacks. Players looking for higher odds may consider betting on Grenade to surprise.
La Granata finished fifth in the league in defensive prowess last season, and this is reflected in their recent games against AC Milan. The Rossoneri have only scored three goals in their last five encounters with Juric’s team, so betting on under 2.5 goals could pay off.
With such a strong focus on keeping the opposition from scoring, Torino is having a hard time allocating enough resources to attack. As a result, despite their success in containing Milan, they only scored in two of the aforementioned games, with a bet that one team would score paid off in four of those games.
While past fixtures have provided clear indicators of what could happen on Saturday, new variables have been introduced into the equation with AC Milan’s summer arrivals. Newcomer Christian Pulisic bonded well with his former Chelsea teammate Olivier Giroud on Monday and scored the second goal against Bologna. The winger looked strong given his limited pre-season and we support the American to continue his strong start in Italy with another win on Saturday afternoon.

Team Milan news
Stefano Pioli has a lot of decisions to make ahead of Saturday’s game and there’s no shortage of fresh faces to choose from. Yunus Musah will compete against Ruben Loftus-Chik and Tijani Reynders in midfield, while Christian Pulisic, Samuel Chukwuese, Noy Okafor, Lorenzo Colombo and Luca Romero are looking to make the top three. Without a doubt, Rafael Leao will keep the left flank safe and Olivier Giroud may well keep his place in front.
Torino team news
Ivan Yurich’s starting lineup will look familiar to Torino fans, with the only key change being the departure of Wilfred Singo and the arrival of Raul Bellanova. La Granata will stick with a three-man defense and the only decision will be whether to start with Ricardo Rodriguez or Coffey Gigi.
