Head To Head

3 Juventus wins. 2 Draws.

Juventus 0 - 0 Milan (Coppa)

Milan 1 - 1 Juventus (Coppa)

Juventus 1 - 0 Milan

Juventus 2 - 1 Milan

Milan 0 - 2 Juventus

Milan comes into this round feeling strong, ready, and eager to push on for the guaranteed group stage entry to next seasons Europa League. With 3 wins from 4, destroying Lazio and breezing past Roma, the Milan fans and team will be feeling like now is the perfect time to end another team’s unbeaten home run in this seasons Serie A.

Juventus will also be coming into this game feeling ready to pounce on Lazio’s defeat and with 7 goals scored in the past 2 rounds will feel like continuing that when they meet Milan on Tuesday night. Only one match in the last 5 games against Milan has been scoreless, so it’s highly likely that this game will have goals.

Players To Watch

Goal Scoring Threat

Ronaldo vs Rebic

Ronaldo has scored in his past 4 Serie A games, coming against Torino, Genoa, Lecce, and Bologna. His last being the best of the bunch striking from distance. With Juventus entering the last stages of their run to the title, as usual, Ronaldo is heavily getting involved. 4 goals and 3 assists in 4 games. Milan will need to pray Conti or Calabria can keep him quiet, which will be no easy task.

Rebic also comes into this game with form, bagging 3 goals in Milan’s last 4 games, however, unlike Ronaldo, goals have come against stronger opposition including Lazio and Roma. With pace and desire, Rebic could very well look to put the Juventus backline under pressure with consistent movement and look to break behind a much slower central pairing, whoever Juventus line up with.

The distance shown in the table is apparent, however, when both sides have met in the previous 5 games, it has always been a tight affair. Milan fans can hope for a pleasant surprise this time around, as they are due a win.

Milan 2:1 Juventus
