AC Milan vs Juventus Match Preview
AC Milan had their faithful on the edge of their seats, in the previous round, of this competition and for good reason. The hosts locked horns with Torino in that latter matchup and went from 1-0 up in the first half to 2-1 down in the closing stages of the games.
However, the home team then found an equalizer through Hakan Calhanoglu, in the 90+1’ minute, forcing the clash into extra time. The Turkish midfielder then completed a brace in the second quarter of extra time, following which Zlatan Ibrahimovic came up with the final nail in the coffin to post a 4-2 scorecard.
In comparison, Juventus had little trouble in their route to the semi-finals. The visitors breezed past AS Roma, at the Allianz Stadium, with a whopping 3-1 scoreline.
Three different players rose to the occasion for the guests in that clash, while their counterparts got their names on the scoresheet from an own-goal off Gianluigi Buffon.
With Juventus making their intentions crystal clear with that thumping win, AC Milan will have to brace themselves for a tough set of ninety minutes this week.
AC Milan vs Juventus Prediction
AC Milan are unbeaten at the San Siro in their past seven fixtures. However, it needs saying that the hosts have come away with the win on just two occasions from those aforementioned clashes.
On the other hand, Juventus have admitted defeat just thrice on the road this season. That too, in all competitions. It is also worth mentioning that the visiting contingent have been faring well in their previous visits to this stadium.
In fact, they have secured the bragging rights in their past two trips here, and have stumbled just twice in their last ten as well.
Given that the visitors are also on a promising run in the Serie A, a win is certainly out of the question for AC Milan.
Be that as it may, the hosts have shared the spoils in five of their previous seven fixtures at home. Taking into account that the guests have been at the losing end in their last two outings, a draw no bet is sizing up to be the safest punt.
Furthermore, AC Milan’s front line have looked sharp in their clashes here as of late. Impressively, they have racked up nine goals from their previous four fixtures at home.
Meanwhile, Juventus have not failed to find the back of the net in any of their past thirteen outings on the trot. With Cristiano Ronaldo as lethal as ever, and Zlatan Ibrahimović scoring twice from his last two appearances, it looks like we have all the ingredients for a high scoring affair in the making, come Thursday.
