It is always quite hard to quantify a victory by seven goals in terms of magnitude, but the statistics that have emerged after it are quite remarkable.
Milan romped to a 7-0 win over Torino on Wednesday night, following up their 3-0 victory in the same city against Juventus on Sunday. A 12-minute Ante Rebic hat-trick was the highlight after a Theo Hernandez brace plus goals from Franck Kessie and Brahim Diaz.
It was an important win, both for the huge scoreline and the three massive points. Below are the best post-match stats, from the club’s official website…
