Milan might have won five of their last six league games, but it’s noticeable the exception came in the derby as they still struggle when playing the better teams. Their other defeat domestically came on the opening day against Napoli on the only other occasion they’ve faced a top side, while they’ve also lost at home to Real Betis in the Europa League – despite the Spanish side sitting down in 14th in La Liga.
Serie A Enhanced Acca Betting Preview, Tips and Odds – Week 12
Juve may have suffered a shock reverse late on hosting Man Utd, but as much as the Red Devils have struggled this term, they’re still a cut above most teams in Serie A and certainly compare favourably with Milan – who are now amongst Europe’s second-tier as they last made the group stages of the Champions League back in 2013/14. Prior to that result against United, Juve had won 13 of 14 unbeaten games this season, earning a perfect record from their seven road trips. In fact, the Old Lady have won 21 of 24 unbeaten away matches since a 3-2 loss to Sampdoria last November, including wins over Napoli, Lazio, Spurs, Real Madrid, Inter and Man Utd.
Juve won all three meetings between these two sides last term by a combined score of 9-1, with all three meetings seeing them win by at least two clear goals as their dominance was never in question. Indeed, aside from a 1-0 success for Milan just over two years ago, Juve have won each of their last four on the road to face Milan since 2013/14, while keeping a clean sheet in three. Indeed, five of Milan’s seven defeats hosting top-six outfits since 2015/16 have seen at least a two goal margin, while Juve should be raring to reassert their authority following a rare negative result.
While the visitors have a deep squad with all their key men available, Milan are hampered by a growing injury list and what’s worse, some of those sidelined at present are vital for the Rossoneri. Mattia Caldara and Davide Calabria are missing at the back, Lucas Biglia, Giacomo Bonaventura and possibly Hakan Calhanoglu are absent in midfield, while most importantly Gonzalo Higuain is in a race to be fit to face his former club.
That should ensure Milan will set up to reflect the resolute nature of their manager, Genaro Gattuso, in his playing days for the club. This will be his 50th game in charge for the club across all competitions, and with a heavy defeat opening the possibility that this could be his last, we’re excepting a cautious approach from the Rossoneri.
Juve have only conceded once across their last five away in all competitions, winning three of these 2-0. Having won by that exact scoreline in this fixture last season, the correct score is also of interest..
