ALL SQUARE IN TURIN

It ends goalless between the Rossoneri and Granata at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino

0-0 again. At the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, AC Milan played with intensity, courage and determination but, for the second consecutive match, weren’t able to find the net. After the home draw against Bologna on Monday, the Rossoneri were involved in another goalless stalemate this evening, this time against the Granata. The team displayed a lot of heart and created plenty of dangerous moments, but they lacked precision up top. While Coach Pioli’s men have now kept five consecutive clean sheets in the league, this result only represents a small step forward in terms of the standings. After three wins in March, the Rossoneri are going through a bit more of a difficult spell when it comes to their performances and adding to their points tally, but they still lead the way in Serie A. The fact that Ibra, Bennacer, Castillejo and Rebić were forced to withdraw so late (thus adding to an injury list that already contained Romagnoli, Florenzi and Kjær) meant that the Coach didn’t have as many options as he would have liked, but the group will keep fighting with the same spirit as they look to return to winning ways against Genoa at San Siro on Friday. Let’s continue to believe!

REPORT
It was a physical, tense and cagey first half. The Rossoneri looked good until the final ball and struggled to create concrete chances against a resolute Torino defence. Calabria got a shot off in the 24th minute but his effort was pushed wide by Berisha. Torino were content to sit back and hit the guests on the counter, and they did so with aplomb in the 32nd minute as Ricci found himself through on goal, but the former Empoli man failed to hit the target from a tight angle. AC Milan upped the tempo as the half wound to a close and shut the hosts inside their half but, for all their pressure, they didn't create any real chances. The first half ended with no added time.

There were no changes at the break and, in the 50th minute, Maignan produced a stunning stop to deny Vojvoda. Leão produced a lovely bit of skill to elude Zima in the box but Bremer got the block in; Tonali's effort on the rebound was blocked behind for a corner (56'). The Rossoneri ramped up the pressure and the defence just about managed to keep the visitors out, first to deny Messias and then Tonali. In the 65th minute, a brilliant bit of defending from Tomori was enough to keep Belotti out. The Rossoneri had a big chance in the 65th minute when Messias found Tonali; Sandro let fly with his left and Berisha managed to save it. Another chance fell the way of AC Milan, this time to Messias, who sent his effort well off target (88'). Bremer than came up big again for his side as he denied Messias at the death: it ended 0-0.
