AC Milan vs Juventus Match Preview
The biggest clash in the Serie A this weekend will be played at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza when AC Milan vs Juventus fixture would take place on Saturday, October 28 evening.
After a summer of extensive spending, it was expected that AC Milan would fight for top honours this season. However, after 10 matches and 16 points, the hosts already find themselves 12 points off the table-leading Napoli in eighth position. The midweek 4-1 win over Chievo ended their four-game win-less streak and earned a reprieve for under-fire manager Vincenzo Montella. A loss would put them farther from the top four and pile more misery on the gaffer. With the top-four race looking as tight as ever, the Rossoneri can ill-afford another slip in the Serie A. Their task, though, is not easy as they get ready to face one of their biggest rivals.
Juventus, on the other hand, have started to find their feet in the Serie A race with a midweek 4-1 win over SPAL putting them third in the table with 25 points from 10 games. They are already the top scorers in the Serie A and are just three off the leaders Napoli. Massimiliano Allegri may have been disappointed with the performance against SPAL but the Bianconeri start the match with a positive frame of mind. In fact, the form of AC Milan against top four sides – they have already lost to Inter Milan, AS Roma and Lazio – should boost the visitors who want to keep nipping on the heels of Napoli and Inter. Having rotated his side heavily against SPAL, Allegri will also have a relatively fresher squad at his disposal.
AC Milan vs Juventus H2H
Juventus have a strangle hold over their hosts having won 10 of their last 12 encounters against AC Milan. However, last season, this AC Milan vs Juventus fixture has seen the Rossoneri win 1-0. But, their own form combined with the downturn of Milan’s fortunes should start the Bianconeri as the favourites for this encounter.

Biggest worry for AC Milan is the absence of Leonardo Bonucci who has picked up a two-match ban after his red card against Genoa. David Calabria is also out of this clash.
Juventus rotated their squad heavily against SPAL and should be back to their regular eleven.

AC Milan vs Juventus Predictions
Juventus win and both teams to score
Juventus are not solid at the back this season which means they are likely to leak goals even against AC Milan. However, their strike rate up front is very impressive and the form of Paulo Dybala should provide enough spark for the visitors to win. However, Milan too look likely to score as there have been over 2.5 goals in 12 of Juventus’ last 13 games, but Juve is much stronger, so I expect their win with a lot of goals.
