Team News

  • Allegri seems to have settled on 4-3-3 as his preferred formation, with Boateng in the attacking pack.
  • A different solution would be having Nocerino in the midfield and Emanuelson as right winger.
  • Pato is injured, so Bojan may start as a false nine, with El Shaarawy on the left side.
  • Chiellini is in doubt for the trip to Milan, so Caceres and Marrone are ready to replace him in defence.
  • Chiellini aside, Conte should pick his usual lineup, with only one choice to make - between Giovinco and Vucinic.
  • Isla is favoured over Lichtsteiner to patrol the right flank.

Prediction

  • Milan gained some confidence back with the Champions League victory and qualification, but Allegri still has some absences and his team may not yet be solid enough to challenge such strong opponents as Juventus.
  • The Bianconeri used all their energy against Chelsea, but they were rewarded with three points and the realisation that the team can battle with big European teams.
  • The hosts always look better when attacking, so it's safe to assume that Allegri will try to push and press in the midfield. But Milan also had day fewer to recover after the midweek exertions, so that will have to be done wisely. Conte may be aiming for just one point and then prepare for the derby against Torino and the last Champions League match against Shakhtar.

  • Juve are suffering due to lack of a quality striker. In the current structure, they need to dominate the possession in order to win.

  • Juve's performance declining since the Inter game...

  • If you're playing a 3-5-2 and can't control the center of the pitch, you're in trouble. Great performance by Montolivo and de Jong.

  • I come back to look at these comments, and now I'm just laughing. Great back-to-back wins by Milan, well deserved to boost their morale. The penalty was questionable but I'll take the win. Forza Milan.

  • S.Giovinco could be the key player of the match. I believe he will at least score one goal.

  • Juve win 2-1. Milan are better than their standing suggests, but Juve are too strong in so many places that they should be favored to win this game.

  • This one's got draw written all over it.

  • I don't think that AC will able to stop Juve. 1-3!

  • Conte NEVER aims just for 1 point!

  • though (in this moment) Milan is very far to be competitive against a team like Juventus i Rossoneri play for his (remarkable) reputation

  • wow big game. Juve to win 3-1

  • Juventus will score a long shot by Pogba, Vidal or Marchisio... Juve'll win the game... 1-3 is good enough.. Forza!!
