Next Saturday at 6:00pm GMT, on matchday 9 of the Serie A, we will see Milan play Juve at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

This clash sees fifth placed Milan, welcome seventh placed Juve to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

AC Milan’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 17 points this season

If Milan’s season is to maintain on track, they must put their recent poor form to an end in this game. In their last two outings, they lost 1-3 at Empoli and 1-2 at Napoli.

Also, Milan keep finding ways to win, having secured five victories in their last eight fixtures is astonishing this season. They currently stand fifth in the League, with 17 points for a total of 5 wins, 1 losses and 2 draws having won five matches, drawn two meetings, and lost one game.

When Milan host Juve, they will do so on the back of three victories and one defeats on their own ground.

A victory for AC Milan would put them on 20 points.

Good Attacking Performance

Milan have a good scoring record this season, with 16 netted so far (14 from open play and two penalties). Their stand out attacking players have been Olivier Giroud (4), Rafael Leao (4), and Ante Rebic (3). Milan have conceded nine goals.

Milan are missing six players through injury or illness. This will affect Stefano Pioli’s selection choices significantly.

With the Serie A season well into its stride, Juventus have managed to gain 13 points

Can Juve make it three out of three, having turned over Bologna 3-0 and AC Monza 1-0 in their last two games?

Also, with four draws in seven meetings, Juve need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. With a seventh position in the league and 3 wins, 1 losses and 4 draws, they currently have 13 points in the League having won three games, drawn four matches, and lost one game.

Juve have drawn two fixtures and lost one game of their three League matches playing away this season.

A win in this fixture would take Juventus’s points to 16 in the League.

Good atacking and defensive team

So far, Juve’s defence has been outstanding, as they have conceded five goals. This has been a good season so far for Juve, in terms of goals scored (12). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Dusan Vlahovic (5), Arkadiusz Milik (3), and Bremer (1).

Massimiliano Allegri could be missing up to five of their players through injury or illness for the game on Saturday.
