Milan vs. Juventus Predictions and Preview
If Stefano Pioli is to depart Milan at the end of the term as widely expected, his successor should be thankful for the foundations the Italian has laid. Ralf Rangnick has reportedly agreed to take the Rossoneri hotseat and will find a number of talented players at Milanello.
Gigio Donnarumma, Theo Hernandez, Ismael Bennacer, Ante Rebic and Hakan Çalhanoğlu have all flourished under Pioli’s guidance and their fine individual performances have alerted a host of the top sides on the continent.
Hernandez arrived from Real Madrid last summer to little fanfare but has been a revelation. The left-back has arguably been the standout performer in his position throughout the campaign and is 11/2 to net anytime and add to his five-goal haul.

|Juventus to win 2-0||9/1||Offer|
Team-mate Çalhanoğlu will operate in the number 10 role. The Turkey international has been at the club since 2017 and is finally performing to the best of his abilities of a weekly basis. Çalhanoğlu is an attractive 11/1 to break the deadlock and will support Rebic in attack.
The Croatian’s showings through the middle have allowed Zlatan Ibrahimovic to recuperate and get back to full health without being rushed back from injury. The loanee is 11/2 to open proceedings and the hosts are 23/10 to topple the travelling party.
Visitors Juventus should finally have Giorgio Chiellini available for selection. The Bianconeri skipper has only featured three times this year and will go straight back in to the eleven alongside Leonardo Bonucci.
In attack, Dybala is likely to continue in a false nine role with Cristiano Ronaldo and Federico Bernardeschi either side. The Argentine is on a good run and has contributed three strikes and one assist from his last 270 minutes of football. Dybala is 7/2 to register first, while Ronaldo is 15/8 in the same market. The Bianconeri are 21/20 to win on the night.
One to watch for Milan: Rafael Leao came on against SPAL and made an instant impact. The Portuguese youngster can play anywhere across the forward line and has the speed to hurt a Bianconeri rearguard with an average age of 32. Leao is 15/2 to record the final effort of the contest.
One to watch for Juventus: Higuain is 15/4 to score last on his latest run out. The South American is still building up his match fitness but has looked sharp in recent cameos.
Long shot: Milan were left to rue Rebic’s dismissal in the Coppa Italia semi-final in Turin but Pioli will have been encouraged by the display of his troops. Despite going down to 10-men, the Rossoneri had the better of the chances and the loanee will be keen to make amends. A 2-2 result is 11/1.
