AC Milan vs Juventus
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 6 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Giuseppe Meazza Stadium, Milan.
AC Milan host Juventus for their Matchday 16 clash as Serie A pace-setters, starting 2021 the same way they ended 2020 as they beat Benevento (0-2) over the weekend. Stefano Pioli’s men connected three wins in a row and returned to the top after Inter outclassed Crotone (6-2) earlier on the day.
Rossoneri now have a tough task on their hands but boast great team spirits and we feel wins over Sassuolo (1-2) and Lazio (3-2) give them a great ground to build on just as well. They’ve been scoring numbers of goals on the regular and we expect a very good challenge on Wednesday, as Milan want to show off the form they’ve enjoyed over the past year.
Juventus have struggled for such consistency this term and sit ten points behind. Still, they beat Udinese (4-1) with great confidence to bounce from a 0-3 loss to Fiorentina seen late in 2020. Bianconeri scored ten goals on their last three trips with great wins at Barcelona (0-3), Genoa (1-3), and Parma (0-4) since early December. With that in mind, we hope for a thriller here too to prove worthy of a derby clash many rate it to be.
