The first half match was not colored by many dangerous opportunities and the only golden opportunity that was created by Milan was able to be used by Giroud into a goal in the 14th minute.
Starting from a corner that Milan got in the match, the ball was passed with Rade Krunic's cross header which headed into the far post area where Giroud met it with a perfect flick to open Milan's advantage.
Since that goal, Torino have actually appeared more aggressive to hunt for a return goal, unfortunately none of their 12 attempted shots throughout the match was able to produce results.
Il Toro's best chance came in the 76th minute when Antonio Sanabria burst into the box and fired a shot past goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu.
However, the ball that almost went into the goal was chased by Simon Kjaer before the dangerous situation was controlled by the aging defender, the captain of the Danish national team.
Then in the 85th minute Dennis Praet grabbed a wild ball which unfortunately bounced off the field and ended up soaring over the crossbar.
In the fourth minute of injury time Torino goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic helped his team-mates in a corner kick and was able to head the ball towards Sanabria, unfortunately he failed to duplicate Giroud's goal and the score 1-0 for Milan lasted until the final whistle.
Milan next travel to the Olimpico against AS Roma on Sunday (31/10), a day after Torino host Sampdoria at the Olimpico Grande.
