We have come to appreciate Serie A more and more over the last years. It is returning to the glory it once had. Sure, the stars that are attracted are usually at the end of their career (Zlatan, Ronaldo, Buffon), but young talents of world class are also slowly gathering to Italy (De Ligt, Dybala). The title race seems played in the favour of Juventus, but there is still enough to be excited about. Take for instance this game. Two clubs with some of the greatest history in the world. With some of the greatest strikers in the world. If you love football, you have got to be excited to watch this treat on a tuesday!
Two Teams on Fire
The fact Juventus can almost smell the trophy is also due to the fact that AC Milan took care of Lazio last week. If it is up to Milan, the present of three points is being withdrawn again. An impressive 3-0 on home turf should be a warning for Juventus that points are never easy to take home from Milan. We would like them to win against Juventus to keep the title race exciting and to see Milan finish 5th again (like last year). However, to bet against the defence of Juventus seems rather silly. They currently have one of the strongest defences in the world. History is also on the side of the Old Lady, as they have not lost from the Red and Blacks since 2016.
Needless to say, the form of Maurizio Sarri’s squad has been ruthless recently. Christiano Ronaldo is almost 1:1 on goals this season and they have won the last seven matches in the Serie A. One statistic speaks for Milan though; the three losses from Juventus were all from away games. Will San Siro be fourth?
AC Milan Juventus Predictions
AC Milan has to do without the services of Mateo Musacchio, Leo Duarte and Samu Castillejo due to injury. Hakan Calhanoglu remains a question mark. We expect Ibrahimovic and Lucas Paqueta to be part of the starting eleven.
Juventus has the same people injured they have had for a while, so we don’t expect much impact from that on the performance. Khedira, Chiellini, Demiral, Sando and De Sciglio are all sidelined. Buffon played his 648th game in the Serie A, taking the record from Paolo Maldini. A record that he will be looking to extend, but Wojciech Szczesny might return between the posts this game.
This game really asks for live betting, as we can’t predict who will turn on the pitch stronger. A possible pre-match would be a draw at half time. There are some nice odds in that!
