The situation in Juventus’ locker room might not be perfect after what’s happened earlier this week. On Tuesday, they played against Cagliari in Sardinia, a match they won 2:0. The controversy arose when Moise Kean scored his goal, which was followed by racist chants from the stadium. Obviously, Cagliari supporters are to be blamed for this, but the problem is that Kean didn’t get the expected support from his teammates. Leo Bonucci, in particular, criticized Kean for “provoking” them.
His comments arouse a lot of controversies, probably heating the things up in the squad. But, will that affect their play in the upcoming matches? Their fans surely hope it won’t because Juve have some pretty important matches ahead. Apart from the match with AC Milan, they also have to play against Ajax this month in the Champions League.
The worst problem is that they have some serious problems with injuries. Cristiano Ronaldo is out, which is their biggest blow, but a few other first-team players will probably also be sidelined. And most of them are from the midfield, meaning that the ones who aren’t injured have to play more often, which, in turn, is making their fitness suffer. But, does this mean the visitors can take advantage of all this? Keep on reading our Juventus vs AC Milan prediction to find out!
Unlike Juventus, who are reigning at the top of the table, where they’ll probably stay till the end of the season, AC Milan’s future isn’t certain. They’re currently at the 4th spot, but will they remain there is a big question. The thing is that there are several teams breathing by their neck, so dropping down to a Europa League place (or even lower) seems like a real possibility.
Furthermore, AC Milan haven’t been in a too impressive form lately. They’re without a win for nearly a whole month, losing two of their three previous games, while also playing draw in the previous round. The draw in question happened at their turf when they played Udinese.

Juventus vs AC Milan Prediction
Juve really don’t have any pressure on them to win this game because they’re pretty close to securing the Serie A title. And because there’s no pressure on them, they can relax and play their game. They’re gonna have a lot of support from the stands of their stadium as AC Milan is one of their biggest rivals. And when it comes to the problems in the locker-room, the best way to solve them is to focus their anger on their arch-rivals.
