MIL vs TOR Dream11: AC Milan will be looking for their first win in three league games when they play hosts to Torino in Serie A at San Siro on Monday night (IST). Milan are 10th heading into this game with 32 points from 23 games, while Torino are down at 14th and come into this game on the back of four consecutive defeats.
Season so far:
Milan are going through a transition period, and remain a team in progress. Last weekend's chastening 4-2 defeat against eternal city rivals Inter Milan was a lesson for this group of player that the progress made since Zlatan Ibrahimovic's arrival could be down to Swedish superstar's presence in the team, with the gulf between them and the top teams as big as it was a couple of months ago.
For Torino, the season is whittling down to the borderline of utter destruction. The reason they are slipping down the table and are closer to the bottom three than at any point in the season. Worse is they are on the road for this game and have lost the last four league games.

AC Milan vs Torino Team News:
AC Milan Team News:
Milan head coach Stefano Pioli confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic (illness) is fit and raring to go for the home game against Torino.
“Zlatan doesn't just speak for the sake of it. He's trained, he's told me he's feeling fine and I've seen nothing that tells a different story,” Piolo said.
As far as the existing injury absentee is concerned, Leo Duarte and Lucas Biglia will sit out the match against Torino with injuries.
How AC Milan may line-up?
It was a game of two halves against Inter Milan last weekend. The first half belonged to AC Milan as the Rossoneri were two goals to good going into the break, while Inter turned the game on its head with a relentless second-half performance.
That said, Pioli is expected to name the same playing 11 that started against Inter and also demand to repeat the first half performance here.
That means, a start for Ante Rebic, who scored in the last game, and Hakan Çalhanoğlu as well.
AC Milan key players:
Theo Hernandez: Milan's best player so far this season. He leads the team with five goals and two assists. To put into context, he plays as left-back.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic: He is due to a goal or two here. We all know how good he still is.
Hakan Çalhanoğlu: There were rumours in January that Milan may offload him, but his recent strong showing forced Milan to change their approach. He can pop up with something.
Ante Rebic: Had a good game against Inter.
Torino team news:
The only positive for Torino ahead of this game that they have a clean bill of health these days, with no player on the treatment table at the moment.
That said, centre-back Armando Izzo was sent off last week and is ineligible to play in this game due to suspension.
How Torino may line-up?
Koffi Djidji is expected to replace Izzo in the playing 11.
Torino's leading man Andrea Belotti will lead the attack for the team.
Torino key players:
Andrea Belotti: He is leading the charge for the team this season with nine goals.
Simone Verdi: Not as good as the last season but he is a good option.
Alex Berenguer: He has scored five times in 12 starts this season.
