Juventus started the season in a miserable fashion after winning just one point from their first three games. Max Allegri’s men would be eager to get back on track, but things aren’t getting easier for them as last year’s vice-champions Milan travel to Turin on Sunday. The Rossoneri are one of the three teams with a perfect record since the start of the season, so they will be eager to earn their fourth victory at the Allianz Stadium.
Where and when: Allianz Stadium – 19 September, kick-off 19:45
Where you can see Juventus v Milan: BT Sport
Last time: AC Milan earned their first ever victory at the Allianz Stadium by trashing the Bianconeri 3-0 last time out. Brahim Diaz, Ante Rebic and Fikayo Tomori were all on target for the Rossoneri in what was a miserable evening for the Old Lady.
Juventus v Milan Predictions and Preview
Juventus continued their woeful start of the season last weekend when they were beaten 2-1 by Napoli at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. The Bianconeri are yet to register their first win in Serie A, as they managed just one draw and two defeats from their opening three games.
Max Allegri’s men travel to Malmo for their Champions League opener on Tuesday and while starting off with a victory in Europe would boast the team’s confidence, the Bianconeri would probably keep one eye on their next league game, as they host AC Milan.
Juventus had to do without their South American contingent for the trip to Naples, as Paulo Dybala, Alex Sandro, Juan Cuadrado, Danilo and Bentancur all returned late from international duty. However, all of them should be available for the game against the Rossoneri on Sunday, so Allegri will probably make a number of changes in comparison to the last game.
Federico Chiesa is also expected to start, as the Italy star was rested and didn’t travel to Naples and Malmo. Juventus would undoubtedly be delighted to welcome Chiesa back, as he scored twice for the 3-1 victory against Milan at San Siro last term. However, the Bianconeri have won just one of their last five games against Milan, as they lost twice, including their last meeting back in May, and also earned two draws.

Correct score 1-1
AC Milan, meanwhile, started the season in a perfect fashion, winning all of their three games in Serie A and boasting a goal difference of 7:1. The Rossoneri dominated Lazio in the 2-0 victory last time in a game that saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic get on the scoresheet for Milan for the first time in almost six months.
The Swede has been recovering from a knee injury all summer, so his return makes Milan even more dangerous. The Rossoneri trashed Juventus 3-0 in Turin the last time those teams met and will be eager to add further misery to Allegri’s camp.
Stefano Pioli’s men travel to England this week for their first ever visit to Anfield where they’ll face Liverpool in their Champions League opener. The last time Milan played in Europe’s most elite competition was back in 2014, so the Rossoneri will be eager to impress against a strong opposition on their return.
Ismael Bennacer returned from injury against Lazio, but lacks match fitness, so he is expected to start on the bench in both the Liverpool game and the visit to Juventus. The Rossoneri already have eight points advantage over the Bianconeri in Serie A, so they’ll try to open an even bigger gap between one of their main rivals for a top four finish.
Despite their poor start, the return of the South Americans makes Juve a completely different animal, so the Bianconeri are 13/10 with William Hill to beat AC Milan this weekend. The draw is priced at 12/5, while a what would be Milan’s fourth consecutive win in Serie A is available at 21/10.
One to watch for Juventus: Federico Chiesa missed the last two games for his club, as the 23-year-old winger was rested as a precaution against Napoli and Malmo. The Bianconeri looked dreadful without the Euro 2020 star, so his return to the starting XI will be a huge boast. Everyone in Turin hopes that the ex-Fiorentina player can turn Juve’s fortunes around, so watch out for Chiesa is to break the deadlock against the Rossoneri.
One to watch for Milan: Zlatan Ibrahimovic was back on target for AC Milan in the 2-0 victory over Lazio nearly six months after his previous goal for the Rossoneri back in March. The Swede might be turning 40 next month, but he hasn’t shown signs of slowing down and has looked good after his return from injury. Regardless of age or fitness, Zlatan is Zlatan and he is one of the main favourites to break the deadlock against Juventus.
Long shot: AC Milan earned a their first ever victory at the Allianz Stadium when they trashed Juventus 3-0 last time out. The Rossoneri are 21/10 to get the three points on Sunday, while at 24/5 you can bet for AC Milan win and both teams to score. If that’s not enough and you are looking for even bigger odds, you can also pair this with Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score the opener.
