Torino, 12th position with 1 point and a goal difference of “0”

AC Milan playing the first game of the season in San Siro look to win the Serie A Week 2 game against Torino on Saturday 26 August 2023 in Milan, Italy. Milan and Torino have drawn 56 times in 153 matches in Serie A; both have recorded more draws only against Lazio in the top division (59 for the Rossoneri, 58 for the Granata).

  • Christian Pulisic became the fifth player in AC Milan history to score in both of his first two Serie A appearances in the three-points-per-win era (since 1994/95), after Oliver Bierhoff, Andriy Shevchenko, Mario Balotelli and Jérémy Ménez.
  • Olivier Giroud has scored all seven of his penaltiestaken in Serie A: since his debut in the top flight, the Frenchman has scored the most of any player with a 100% record (7/7).
  • AC Milan have scored at least three goals in three consecutive home gamesin Serie A (Samp and Verona in 2022/23 and Torino in 2023/24) for the first time since July 2020 (against Juventus, Parma and Bologna).

“Captain America” made his presence felt in San Siro by opening the score in the 33rd minute. Christian Pulisic defeated Torino goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic from very close range with a left-footed shot to the bottom left corner. The assist is by Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Torino equalized in the 36th minute. Perr Schuurs defeated AC Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan with a right footed shot to the bottom left corner. The assist is by Samuele Ricci.

AC Milan took the lead again in the 43rd minute. Forward Olivier Giroud converted a penalty with a left footed shot to the bottom right corner. The penalty is conceded by Alessandro Buongiorno.

AC Milan rocking scored a third goal before ending the first half in the 45th minute. Forward Theo Hernández scored with a left footed shot to the center. The assist is by Rafael Leão. Perfect duo are making wonders for the Rossoneri.

Yunus Musah made his debut with AC Milan in the Serie A in the 67th minute after replacing Loftus-Cheek.

✅   Stats before the game: Milan have won five of their last seven Serie A matches against Torino (D1, L1), as many victories as in their previous 15 matches against the granata in the tournament (D8, L2). Torino’s last victory away against Milan in Serie A dates back to 24 March 1985; the Rossoneri have, in fact, remained unbeaten in the following 27 home games against the granata in the tournament (W19, D8) and only against Verona do they have a longer open streak of home games without defeat in the competition (31). Between this and last season AC Milan have won their last four matches in Serie A and are no better than a run of seven consecutive wins between the end of 2021/22 and the start of 2022/23; that series stopped right on the second day (draw against Atalanta). Milan scored eight goals in their last two home games of last season, five against Sampdoria and three against Verona; the Rossoneri have not scored at least three goals in three consecutive Serie A home games since July 2020, against Juventus, Parma and Bologna in that case.

Lineup AC MILAN (4-3-3): Maignan; Calabria, Thiaw, Tomori, Hernández; Loftus-Cheek, Krunić, Reijnders; Pulisic, Giroud, Leão.

Lineup TORINO (3-4-2-1): Milinković-Savić; Schuurs, Buongiorno, Rodríguez; Bellanova, Ricci, Ilić, Vojvoda; Radonijć, Vlašić; Sanabria.
