KEY STATISTICS

– Torino have won their last two Serie A meetings against AC Milan, as many as they had in their previous 45 encounters with the Rossoneri in the Italian top flight (D24 L19).

– After winning the reverse fixture at Olimpico Grande Torino earlier this term, Torino could win both games against AC Milan in the same Serie A season for the first time since 1984/85.

– AC Milan are unbeaten in their last 23 home Serie A games against Torino (W15 D8) only against Verona (28) do they currently own a longer such streak.

– AC Milan have lost their last two Serie A games following a defeat in the Milan Dderby – against Sampdoria in March 2019 and against Torino in the reverse fixture this term.

– Torino have lost their last four league games, conceding 16 goals – the last time the Granata suffered a longer streak of consecutive Serie A defeats was back in 2006/07, under Alberto Zaccheroni.

– Torino have picked up 27 points in 23 Serie A games this term; their worst return at this stage of the season since 2008/09 (19 points), when they were ultimately relegated.

– AC Milan have conceded the fewest shots during the first half of action in Serie A this season (105) – indeed, the Rossoneri have conceded the lowest percentage of their goals during first halves this term (29% – 9/31).

– AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic is unbeaten in his four Serie A games against Torino (W3 D1), scoring three goals across these appearances.

– Ante Rebic has scored at least twice as many goals as any other AC Milan player in Serie A in 2020 (four) – his first goal in the Italian top flight came against Torino, back in May 2014 with Fiorentina.

– Andrea Belotti has scored three goals in his last two Serie A meetings with AC Milan; however, the Torino forward has not scored in his last five league games. The last time he had a longer drought of goals in Serie A was in February 2019 (six appearances).
