AC Milan vs Juventus
Italy – Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 7 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Stefano Pioli’s men are placed seventh in the table, and are in possession of the final European spot. However, it provides just an entry into the qualifiers of the Europa, and for a club of their stature, it is kind of an underachievement. They surely will be looking to finish higher in the table.
However, they have to take on the defending champions of the league and easily the best team in Italy for the past decade. The Old Lady are at the top of the table, and with eight games remaining, they have a lead of seven points over the second-placed Lazio.
In this clash of the titans, expect the in-form squads to look for nothing but the three points. More than their European objectives, count on the intense rivalry between the teams to take charge here. Expect both teams to score goals this Tuesday.
With the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic on either side, it seems the obvious choice.
AC Milan vs Juventus: Head-to-head (h2h)

AC Milan vs Juventus: Prediction
The Red and Blacks recorded a 0-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Lazio. Despite the hosts being the sole contenders to challenge Sarri’s men for the title, the seven-time Champions League winners totally dominated them throughout.
In the meantime, the Old Lady registered a 4-1 victory at home the past game week, against Torino. Both Paulo Dybala and Ronaldo were on target for the hosts in the derby.
This Tuesday, expect the fierce rivalry between the teams to take centre-stage at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. Either has a claim to be called the best team in the country’s history, and as always will go in looking for nothing but the win.
Moreover, a loss at this stage would be detrimental for Sarri’s men considering their CL ambitions, while Pioli’s men would face a setback in their quest to qualify for the Europa.
In addition, the Red and Blacks were unbeaten in 13 of their previous 15 overall match-ups, and remained so in nine of their last ten appearances at home. Coming to the title-holders, they are on a four-fixture winning run, and have scored a total of 13 goals in the process.
Likely, expect both teams to score goals this Tuesday. In regards to result though, understand that the Old Lady are the toppers, and are gunning for their ninth straight Serie A crown. They have also recorded the past nine h2h wins, and have registered 21 of the former 27 such victories as well.
Taking into account these factors, expect Juventus to win at least one of the halves.
