Torino Defeat Halts Milan’s Unbeaten Away Record in Serie A

20 November 2021, the date when Milan last lost an away league match before succumbing to Torino on Sunday evening. Koffi Djidji put the Granata in the driving seat with a skillful header from a set-piece delivery into the far post, just two minutes before Aleksei Miranchuk stabbed a low drive in the bottom right corner to make it 2-0 before half-time. Junior Messias managed to halve the hosts’ lead but it was nothing but a consolation in the end.

This brings an end to a run of 17 away Serie A games without a single defeat – 12 wins and 5 draws – the longest streak in the top five European Leagues without tasting a loss on the road.

The loss also brings to an end Milan’s run of four successive victories in Serie A.

Milan coach Stefano Pioli was visibly frustrated after the defeat, as the Rossoneri failed to shorten their gap with high-flying league leaders Napoli who now sit six points ahead of them with 32 points.
