A long goal drought and many draws: All the key stats ahead of Torino vs. Milan

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan’s encounter with Torino is now just a few hours away and the Rossoneri will be eager to extend their winning streak to five games. There are several interesting facts and stats for this clash, as we will get into. 

Stefano Pioli’s men are fighting at the top and since their rivals all won yesterday, the pressure is on to claim all three points this evening. It’s a game that won’t be easy and the manager is well aware of that.

The last fixture ended 0-0 and Milan will want to avoid that happening again. You can read our pre-match preview here, while below are the best stats…

➤ Torino drew 0-0 in their last Serie A encounter with Milan, having lost their previous four against them in the competition (all without scoring).

➤ Torino have failed to score a Serie A goal against Milan in their last 464 minutes (excl. injury time): they last scored against Milan in a 2-1 victory back in September 2019, thanks to a Belotti strike (in their last league victory against the Rossoneri).

➤ Torino and AC Milan have drawn seven of their last 11 Serie A meetings in Turin (two wins each), including the most recent one last April: since 2006/07, Milan are the side against which the Granata have drawn the most top-flight home matches (seven).

➤ Following their win against Udinese last time out, Torino could win two successive Serie A matches for the first time since last January (v Fiorentina and Sampdoria).

➤ Milan are unbeaten in their last 17 Serie A away matches (W12 D5), the longest open run in the big-5 European leagues: they last had a longer such run between September 1991 and October 1993 (38 under Fabio Capello).

➤ Milan have scored the most goals from open play in Serie A this season (21); on the other hand, only Torino (zero) have scored fewer set-piece goals (excl. penalties) so far than AC Milan (one).

➤ No side has attempted more shots from outside the box than Milan in Serie A this season (67), whilst Torino have had 48: however, the Granata are the only side yet to score a goal from outside the box so far.

➤ No current Torino player has scored a Serie A goal against Milan; considering all competitions, their only player to have netted against them is Antonio Sanabria, for Real Betis in October 2018, in the UEFA Europa League.

➤ Torino are Ante Rebic’s favourite opponent across the ‘top five’ European leagues; he has scored five goals in five appearances against them (one for Fiorentina), including his only brace (on 12th May 2021, in a 7-0 win for Milan at the Olimpico Grande Torino).

➤ Rafael Leão is the Portuguese player to have had a hand in the most goals in the ‘top five’ European leagues in 2022/23 (nine: five goals + four assists) – furthermore, he is one of the five players born since 1999 to have been involved in 9+ goals so far this term in the big-5 European leagues, alongside Musiala, Haaland, David and Foden.
