The best team in the league against an "average" AC Milan that's struggling in this beginning of the year. Despite an encouraging win last week we need to find continuity in our results to improve our standings and reach a place in Europa League.
We go back to the "false 9" system - because of the Mattia Destro suspension - with a strong and energetic midfield that will have to fight against their stellar Pirlo-Pogba-Marchisio-Vidal midfield. We'll see the new signings Paletta and Antonelli on the field together with Zaccardo who played very well las week against Parma deserving his second straight start this season. I think this is gonna be a counter attack game since Juventus is one of the best team in Europe at retaining the ball possession.
These are the starting XI:
Our starting XI VS Juventus: Diego Lopez; Zaccardo, Alex, Paletta, Antonelli; Poli, Essien, Muntari; Cerci, Menez, Honda. #JuveMilan— AC Milan (@acmilan) February 7, 2015
