Torino 0-7 AC Milan: Top three performers as Rossoneri edge closer to UCL with big win

Milan continued their good run of form this evening as they scored seven (!) goals against Torino, beating yet another Turin-based side convincingly. It was indeed a one-sided encounter and the Rossoneri are now one step closer to the Champions League, as they could secure their spot on Sunday. 

Stefano Pioli’s men surprised many with their 3-0 win against Juventus and not many thought they would be able to top that this evening. They more or less did, although Torino are in poor form, as scoring seven goals is never that easy. Either way, the good form continues and that is a very good sign. 

Several players impressed and they will surely be full of confidence for the game against Cagliari on Sunday. Provided that Atalanta beat Genoa on Saturday (preventing the scenario where Milan, Atalanta and Juventus finish level on points), then a win on Sunday will be enough for the Rossoneri. Down below are the top three performers.

Theo Hernandez

He was almost the MOTM this evening with a fantastic performance in the 69 minutes he played, bagging two very nice goals. One was with power and the other with finesse, showing off the Frenchman’s versatility attacking-wise and he seems to be back in his top form.

It will be hard for Didier Deschamps, the head coach of France, to ignore him now as the left-back has been a key player for Milan all season. Either way, Stefano Pioli is delighted to have Hernandez in his squad and that is all that matters for now, with two important games left to play.

Brahim Diaz

After his stunning goal against Juventus last time out, the Real Madrid loanee continued his good form this evening with one goal (a tad easier this time) and one assist. It’s becoming clear that he might actually stay at Milan behind this season, after rumours initially suggested that the asking price is too high.

In tonight’s game, Diaz was important with his movement and he has certainly worked on his strength, as he doesn’t lose the ball that often anymore. All good news for Paolo Maldini, who now will have to sit down with the Bernabeu side and discuss the future of the playmaker.

Ante Rebic

It’s impossible to make this list without including the Croatian, who not only added a lot to the Rossoneri’s attack with his movement, but also bagged a hat-trick in the second half. He was at the right place at the right time for most of the game and also got an assist to his name.

Once again, the No.12 has turned up in the second half of the season and it’s the perfect timing, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss the rest of the campaign. The hat-trick will surely give him a lot of confidence and that’s exactly what Milan need ahead of the game against Cagliari on Sunday.
