Milan v Juventus Predictions and Preview
Milan are aiming to bounce back from an awful defeat at home to Spezia on Monday, which was as notable for the Rossoneri’s poor finishing as it was for the refereeing error that cost them what may well have proven to be a late winner. The result leaves Stefano Pioli’s side two points behind leaders Inter in the Serie A table, with Il Diavolo’s local rivals also having a game in hand.
Juventus cruised to a 4-1 victory over Sampdoria in the Coppa Italia on Tuesday, with their dramatic late loss to Inter in the Supercoppa Italiana their only defeat in their last 11 matches in all competitions. The Bianconeri have won eight of their last 11 Serie A fixtures, lifting them to within touching distance of the top four.
