Last time: Milan overcame Torino on penalties at the San Siro in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia in January, three days after the Rossoneri beat Il Toro 2-0 at the same ground in the league.
Torino v Milan Predictions and Preview
The Serie A title may be all sewn up and heading to Milan’s local rivals Inter, but the top-four battle promises to go down to the wire. A couple of big teams are going to miss out, with Milan hoping they aren’t one of them as they target three points against Torino.
Il Toro, meanwhile, are still threatened by relegation, despite amassing a decent points tally so far. Davide Nicola’s side do still have a game in hand over all the teams around them, although it is against Champions League-chasing Lazio.
Things are finely poised at both ends of the table, with both of these teams searching for a big three points on Wednesday night. Milan have enjoyed the greater success in recent meetings, as the Rossoneri go in search of their fifth straight victory over Torino this week.
That said, all of those games were at the San Siro, with two Coppa Italia ties settled in extra-time and on penalties. Torino are unbeaten in their last seven home games against Milan, winning each of the last two. The hosts are the 5/2 underdogs in the latest odds for this game, but they could be worth a look.

Milan to win and BTTS
Milan to win 2-1
Ibrahimovic to score first
The away team are available at 10/9 in these Torino v Milan predictions, which come hot on the heels of Sunday’s trip to top-four rivals Juventus. Stefano Pioli’s side have been in danger of wasting what looked like being a hugely promising season, but a return to the Champions League would be an achievement.
The Rossoneri need to end the season strongly to do so, with a draw potentially causing real harm to their chances. That’s priced at 37/13, with five straight draws between the teams at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino prior to Il Toro’s two most recent victories.
The home team have Simone Verdi and Rolando Mandragora available again following suspensions, but on-loan Nicola Murru is injured along with goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic. Milan expect to have Mario Mandzukic available following struggles with injury and illness, while Samu Castillejo has served a ban and should also feature.
One to watch for Torino: Andrea Belotti is Torino’s top scorer this season, although the goals have hardly been flowing in the second half of the campaign. He’s always a threat though and priced at 11/10 in the anytime scorer market here.
One to watch for Milan: Zlatan Ibrahimovic has also had a much quieter second half of the season, but it’s still been an impressive campaign from the 39-year-old nonetheless. He is the 3/1 favourite to add to his tally by breaking the deadlock on Wednesday.
Long shot: Torino have scored exactly two goals in their last two home games against Milan, winning on both occasions. A 2-1 home win this week is priced at 12/1 in these Torino v Milan tips, rising to 59/1 with Belotti scoring first.
