Will the match between Milan and Juventus help to determine the Scudetto once again?

Both teams are the cream of the crop of Italian Football, and while the Derby della Madonnina will always be the most important matches on the calendar for any Milan fan, it could be argued that the match against Juventus is always the next most important.
With Milan seeming to find its mojo again after a few listless years, the Juventus-Milan match helping to determine a title seems rather appropriate, even if Milan isn’t the team that will be going for Scudetto.
If Juventus stumbles against Milan this weekend, the door will be opened for Napoli to control their own destiny in the race for the Scudetto. And while Milan fans would like to win the title for themselves, denying Juventus another title is almost as sweet, right?
