Players to Watch

Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo is top scorer and is a game changer. He has also scored consistently against Milan since coming to the Serie A hence will need to be watched. The striker will be up against Kjaer who can keep him at bay but Milan need to be smart and vigilant so as to limit mistakes at the back and need to ensure not to concede a penalty.

Ante Rebic

Rebic has been a big game player since his arrival. He score against Juventus in the win last season and will need to bring that fire into this game. The striker has scored just one goal this season and this would be the perfect game to find his goal scoring form. The striker will need to beat Bonucci to get to the goal hence speed will be key.

Simon Kjaer

Our rock in the defence. Kjaer will be the commander and will need to ensure that everyone remains disciplined and doesn’t give the opposition too much space. Ronaldo will be the main point of attack potentially with Dybala if he is healthy. The long shots will need to be blocked as well as no space in the box. Kjaer will be the most experienced player for Milan hence will need to be a leader.

Prediction: Milan 2 - 2 Juventus
