Previews: Torino vs AC Milan

The 37th round of Serie A will see Torino host AC Milan on Saturday, May 18.


Torino is in the middle of the pack, in tenth place, with two rounds left in the season. They are only lagging by one point from ninth place, so it is unlikely that they will climb higher. Should Torino’s season-ending failure to qualify for European competitions continue, head coach Ivan Jurić had previously threatened to quit the club. The club has consequently begun looking for his replacement.
After losing their last five games without a win, Torino defeated Verona 2-1 on the road in the previous round. Three of Torino’s previous four games had resulted in 0-0 draws, with the team failing to score in each of them.

AC Milan

Second place in Serie A is guaranteed for AC Milan at the end of the season, but like Torino, they are also looking for a new head coach. Executives at the club have decided to sever ties with Stefano Pioli due to their dissatisfaction with his lack of progress. The current manager of Lille, Paulo Fonseca, is seen as the front-runner for the Milan position.
Milan ended a four-match losing streak by thrashing Cagliari 5-1 at home in the previous round. Milan and Genoa unexpectedly drew 3-3 prior to this.
