AC Milan will look to quickly bounce back from their first defeat of the Serie A season against Juventus last time out when they welcome Torino to the San Siro on Saturday (7:45pm kick-off, UK time).
Stefano Pioli’s side were inflicted a first loss of the campaign on Wednesday, with reigning champions Juve winning 3-1 against a threadbare Rossoneri to close the gap at the top of the table. Milan will now look to put that defeat behind them when they take on struggling Torino this weekend.

AC Milan vs Torino build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Milan have been cruising at the Serie A summit this season, looking to end a decade-long wait for the Scudetto, but Andrea Pirlo was able to capitalise on Pioli’s depleted squad in midweek and pull off a 3-1 win for Juventus to restore parity at the top of the table in another intense North-West meeting.
The defeat for Milan now means just seven points separates the two age-old adversaries, with the Old Lady having also played a game less, while Inter remain a point below in second, but it’s a different story for Torino at the foot of the table.
Il Toro are floundering just outside the relegation trap door, with Marco Giampaolo desperate to start putting points on the board. But, Milan fans will know that for Giampaolo that is a task easier said than done, as the club’s former manager still has the lowest points per game ratio in Serie A since 2000 (1.29) for the Rossoneri.
- AC Milan (vs Juventus): Donnarumma; Dalot, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Calabria, Kessie, Castillejo, Calhanoglu, Hauge; Leao.
- Torino (vs Verona): Sirigu; Izzo, Lyanco, Bremer; Singo, Lukic, Rincon, Linetty, Murru; Gojak, Belotti.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ismael Bennacer, Matteo Gabbia and Alexis Saelemaekers all remain doubts for Milan, while Rade Krunic and Ante Rebic will not take part in this contest. Pioli does, however, welcome Sandro Tonali back from his one-game suspension.
Player to watch: Andrea Belotti (Torino)
Scoring has not been an issue for Torino this season and why would it be when they have a striker as prolific as their captain, Andrea Belotti? Incredibly, despite sitting just a place outside the drop zone, Torino have outscored every club in Serie A from eighth down to 20th, including Lazio, who boast the current Capocannoniere holder Ciro Immobile. For his part, Belotti has netted nine goals, with only four players scoring more in Serie A this term, including Romelu Lukaku (12) and Cristiano Ronaldo (14), while he will fancy his chances against Milan this weekend, as he has five goals to his name at the San Siro. Only at the Stadio Olimpico (six) has he scored more in away matches in the competition.
