AC Milan once again failed to score during last night’s 0-0 draw against Torino, making it four goals in the last seven games as the Scudetto race got even tighter.
Stefano Pioli’s team are still have two points clear of Napoli and Inter in the standings, but the Nerazzurri still have a game in hand which now means that the title dream is out of the Rossoneri’s hands.
Il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) are reporting that everything is still open in the Scudetto race but it is necessary to change gears immediately and avoid other mistakes, starting from the next match scheduled for Friday evening against Genoa.
There are simply very few positive signs coming from the attack where Giroud and Leao continue to be relied upon too much and that means that yet another solid defensive performance and another clean sheet went without reward.
A number of late absences didn’t help as Pioli was robbed of vital players for the away match in Turin. In addition to Kjaer and Florenzi, Ibrahimovic was out due overload in the knee and Rebic, Bennacer and Castillejo sustained muscle fatigue. Their absence was felt a lot yesterday, especially in the attack and because of the lack of options on the bench.
