AC Milan vs Juventus
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 11 November 2018
Kick-Off: 19:30 UK,
Venue: Stadio San Siro (Milan).
Serie A’s big clash is set for Sunday evening as Milan take on Juventus at the Stadio San Siro. The Rossoneri have managed to climb into the top four, but could their three game winning streak come at an end at the hands of Juventus? After all, the Bianconeri have won 11 of their last 12 games and are sitting comfortably on top of the Serie A table.
However, Juve ended up losing 2-1 to Manchester United, which is their first loss across all competitions this season. That being said, they have yet to lose in the league this season. They’ll be looking to bounce back here, in an interesting clash as Massimiliano Allegri takes on his former player Gennaro Gattuso. With Napoli facing Genoa and Inter facing Sampdoria in matches prior, this gap could be cut to three points, and Juve will want to restore their comfortable lead heading into the international break.
Milan, meanwhile have struggled against other top sides, losing already to Napoli and Inter so far this term. They ended up with a 1-1 draw with Real Betis midweek and the injuries have started to pile up at a really awful time for the Diavolo. Gonzalo Higuain will be desperate to face his former side after being shipped out, but he, too is in doubt for this game after suffering an injury recently. Meanwhile, it will be a very interesting return to the Stadio San Siro for Leonardo Bonucci, who once skippered the Rossoneri last season and now will be taking on his ex-teammates for the first time since moving back to Juventus last summer.

AC Milan vs Juventus: Prediction
Milan have won five of their last six games in Serie A and have only lost one of their last 10 in the league, but they are taking on none other than Juventus. They haven’t beaten the Bianconeri since October 2016 and that was their only victory in their last ten encounters with La Vecchia Signora, so Juve should be able to rebound from their recent loss and come out on top here.
