Milan mentality key to Pioli success

AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli insists his team will learn from their mistakes during their 4-2 win at Bologna on Saturday, but thinks their mentality is what separates them from the rest.

Milan host Torino on Tuesday and are 1/2 to maintain their unbeaten start at the San Siro. The visitors are 5/1 to land the upset, while the draw is a 7/2 chance.

Solid start

The Rossoneri have amassed 25 points from their opening nine assignments, winning eight times and drawing once.

Milan's only dropped points this season came in a 1-1 draw at Juventus and they have now recorded five straight wins courtesy of their 4-2 win at Bologna.

However, Milan made hard work of earning maximum points at the Renato Dall'Ara Stadium, despite the hosts playing for over half an hour with nine men.

Milan had raced into a 2-0 half-time lead thanks to goals from Rafael Leao Davide Calabria.

But Zlatan Ibrahimovic headed a corner into his own net before Musa Barrow levelled for the hosts with 52 minutes on the clock.

Milan huffed and puffed and needed late goals from Ismael Bennacer and Ibrahimovic, who was making his first start of the season, to get the job done.

Still learning

Speaking to Sky Sport Italia following the win, Piolo said: "This is a very important victory, very important. We know after the Champions League fixtures it's tough against teams who had all week to prepare, but we will learn from this experience.

"Now we've got to get back physical and psychological energy to avoid making these mistakes again."

He added: "It's the mentality that makes the difference, which makes us go for the victory and continue believing in ourselves right to the end."
