With Inter and Juventus both winning their respective Serie A games on Saturday, the spotlight shifts back to Milan and how they fare in Turin. As things stand, Stefano Pioli’s Rossoneri remain affixed to Serie A’s No. 1 berth, but the San Siro club will know any potential slip-ups are likely to be capitalised on.
It was in this exact fixture last season that Milan ran amok with an emphatic 7-0 triumph, but Pioli’s men haven’t been quite as free-scoring as that result at the Olimpico di Torino in 2020/21, with the Italian tactician overseeing 1-0 wins in four of the club’s previous seven Serie A matches.
Milan have, in fact, won each of their last four Serie A games against Torino by an aggregate scoreline of 11-0, but incredibly, you would have to go back to 2008 under a certain Carlo Ancelotti for the last time the Rossoneri won two league games in a row at the Olimpico di Torino.
Under Ivan Juric this campaign, Il Toro have been strikingly more competition than last term when they were battling to stay in the division. They currently sit 11th and enter this match knowing they have the capacity to upset the big boys, drawing 1-1 with Inter during their last home game in Serie A.

Torino vs AC Milan: Match Stats
Ante Rebic hasn’t been the attacking menace that he usually is in Serie A this term, but he will feel confident of getting on the scoresheet in Turin. The Croatian forward has scored his last six Serie A goals away from home, five of which were in Turin (two vs Juventus). In fact, Torino are his favourite opponent in the competition (five goals) and the only side against whom he has scored a hat-trick (in that aforementioned 7-0 win for AC Milan last season).
Despite that result, and Rebic’s potential to get on the scoresheet, this could prove a somewhat tame affair. Milan enter this showdown having overseen under 2.5 goals in each of their previous five league games. Pioli’s men have kept clean sheets in the last four and will be looking to make it five shutouts in a row against Torino. The only other opponent Milan have won five in a row without conceding is Bari, whom they won to nil successively between 1964 and 1985.
The standout result is, of course, that 7-0 thrashing less than a year ago in Turin. Pioli’s men ran rampant that day, with Theo Hernandez netting a rare brace, Rebic claiming the match ball with a 12-minute hat-trick, Franck Kessie firing home from the spot, and Brahim Diaz also getting in on the action.
