Milan's Abbiati expects Torino to come out firing

Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati expects his old side Torino to come out and throw everything at the Rossoneri this weekend.

After losing 3-2 to Catania last week, Torino will be hoping to quickly make amends and Abbiati is excited about returning to his former home in what promises to be an exciting contest.

"It's an important game because we need to continue our positive run of results," Abbiati said.

"But Torino have a good group and they have been unlucky so far - in my opinion they should have more points than they do.

"I don't fear anyone in particular but Alessandro Rosina is a great player. What worries me most is their determination to put things right, which could be a dangerous weapon.

"I had a nice period there and I'm a little excited to go back there," he added.

"I want to thank Torino President Urbano Cairo for the trust he showed in me to give me the opportunity to play for his team. I was very disappointed at the time that I wasn't able to stay."
