Juventus v Milan Predictions and Preview
It has been a miserable campaign for Juventus and there are likely to be wholesale changes on and off the pitch. Max Allegri has reportedly agreed to return to the Bianconeri dugout, while Gigio Donnarumma and Manuel Locatelli could be the first new arrivals through the door.
Alex Sandro, Aaron Ramsey, Adrien Rabiot, Merih Demiral, Federico Bernardeschi and Gianluca Frabotta could all be moved on and there are serious question marks over Cristiano Ronaldo, Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala’s futures.

There are conflicting claims on Ronaldo who has 31 goals and five assists from 36 appearances in all competitions. The Portugal skipper is six clear of closest challenger Romelu Lukaku for the Capocannoniere prize and can be found at 5/2 to open proceedings.
Partner Morata has done more than enough to earn a permanent stay in Turin and could be part of a trade with Dybala going to Atletico Madrid. The Spaniard is 15/4 in the same market and Juventus are a better side with him in it.
Opponents Milan picked up a much-needed victory in the previous gameweek. The Rossoneri toppled struggling Benevento courtesy of Hakan Calhanoglu and Hernandez and could leap to as high as second if they better Atalanta’s result.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is 11/2 to break the deadlock and will be supported by Ante Rebic, Calhanoglu and Rafael Leao. The former Juventus, Inter and Barcelona hitman will tussle it out with fellow veteran Giorgio Chiellini one last time with the Italian likely to retire later this month. Rebic and Leao are both 5/2 to bag anytime and the Rossoneri are 7/2 to emerge triumphant.
One to watch for Juventus: Chiesa can be delighted with his own performances despite the Bianconeri’s turbulent year and is 6/1 to register first.
One to watch for Milan: Franck Kessie is the designated spot kick taker and no team in Europe has been awarded more penalties than the Rossoneri. The recruit from Atalanta is 12/1 to notch last.
Long shot: Inter will take great glee in watching bitter town rivals Milan and deposed champions Juventus fight for a much-coveted Champions League berth and the tension will be palpable. A 0-0 stalemate, keeping both outfits in contention, is 33/4.
