What to Expect
Massimilano Allegri's AC Milan, especially since January 2013, is one of the most exciting in world football.
Milan (AFP) – Italy striker Andrea Belotti made amends for missing a second-half penalty for Torino with a late brace that secured a share of the points in a 2-2 draw at Fiorentina in Serie A Monday.
In a clash helpful to both sides’ chances of qualifying for Europe next season, Fiorentina raced to a two-goal lead before half-time after Riccardo Saponara, in the eighth minute and Nikola Kalinic, with a 38th minute header, beat Joe Hart in the Torino net.
