AC Milan had trouble breaking through an unusually obstinate Cagliari defence on Sunday evening. The Sardinia based outfit have been leaking goals for fun this season and it's been their downfall particularly on their travels, but they held firm for the 88 minutes at the San Siro.
Milan created chances, but few could be considered clear cut as they struggled to find a way through the wall of white shirts.
Carlos Bacca popped up with the winner a couple of minutes from time to spread relief around the stadium. The Milan fans will be glad to see him notch his first goal since October.
At home, they've conceded just three goals in six games and will fancy their chances of keeping out a Torino side who have struggled on their travels recently.
Alessio Romanogli is out with the flu, which is a blow, but Vincenzo Montella is expected to field a strong team for this tie.
After losing to Juventus in the final last season, they'll be determined to put that right and having already clinched the Italian Super Cup, they'll be in confident mood.
M'Baye Niang could be rested for the hosts as he continues to be subject of transfer speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League.
Torino could only pick up a goalless draw against Sassuolo at the weekend. It would appear a poor result given the Neoverdi's recent form, but the have welcomed numerous players back and should improve for the second half of the season.
Sinisa Mihajlovic's side made hard work of their victory over Pisa in the previous round. They hit four in extra time as the Serie B team ran out of puff, but it wasn't convincing from the Granata.
They haven't won an away game in this tournament since 2008 and could find difficulty in breaking that poor run of form here.
They've won just one of their last six games on the road and were defeated here to Inter back in October.
