Juventus vs AC Milan
Italy Serie A,
Date: Sunday, 19 September 2021
Kick-off 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium.
Juventus host Milan in the derby of the Matchday No 4 in Serie A on Sunday evening at the Allianz Stadium.
Believe it or not, Juventus are still searching for their inaugural league victory of the season. They got off to a dreadful start to the 2021/22 Serie A campaign with just one point from the opening three outings.
Shocks and turbulences surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s sudden departure certainly have something to do with such a disastrous start, but Massimiliano Allegri desperately needs to find a way to turn the team’s fortunes around as soon as possible.
Mid-week’s 0-3 thumping of Malmo at the start of the new UEFA Champions League campaign could help, as well as Alvaro Morata’s fine form.
The Spanish forward bagged a goal in each of the last two matches (a 1-2 loss at Napoli last weekend and a 3-0 win at Malmo on Tuesday) within the last seven days.
Unfortunately, influential midfielder Federico Chiesa will likely skip Milan’s visit, just as he did the team’s trip to Malmo.
Although Milan lost their Champions League opener to Liverpool on Wednesday, their manager Stefano Pioli has numerous reasons to be optimistic ahead of the trip to Turin.
I Rossoneri showed a great performance against one of the best clubs in the world in a 3-2 loss away at the Anfield.
Moving forward, they have a perfect domestic record with three wins in three Serie A outings this term, a thread that includes an impressive 2-0 victory over in-form Lazio seven days ago.
Juventus vs AC Milan Head-to-head
- Juventus have been more successful side in the history of the clashes against Milan.
- The hosts won 36, drew 16, and lost 18 of the last 68 encounters with I Rossoneri.
- However, Milan won two of the last three meetings with I Bianconeri, scoring as many as seven goals in these two victories.
- We’ve seen three or more goals in each of the last three head to head encounters between the two teams with most titles in Italy.
Juventus vs AC Milan Prediction
Juventus can ill afford another failure, but Milan are on a fabulous run of form at the start of the season. The draw somehow appears as the most likable of the three outcomes and you can go for it at the odds of 3.40.
We will rather go with the Both Teams To Score option at the odds of 1.61. Alternatively, in-form Alvaro Morata is 2.30 to score anytime on Sunday
