AC Milan Travel to Turin for a Timeless Derby Against JuventusPublished March 10, 2017 by Florin P
Juventus and AC Milan play in the most exciting match of the weekend at Juventus Stadium (7:45 p.m UK Time).
Juventus has pretty much won the Italian championship, with many rounds left before the official conclusion. They have a significant advantage over AS Roma and don’t show any sign of weakness. In the Champions League, they have made a big step forward by winning the first leg against Porto. Now they take on a familiar opponent, as AC Milan comes to Turin to ruin their perfect record.
14 Victories in as Many Matches
AS Roma was until recently the only other team in the Serie A to win all the games played at home. Their defeat against Napoli ruined that perfect record and AC Milan hopes to achieve something similar in Turin. The hosts have no major injury concerns, but will rest several key players ahead of the Champions League second leg.
The home side has two major objectives left, now that the domestic championship is almost secured. They need to win the Italian cup and make a deep run in the most important European competition. They’ve won the first leg in both tournaments and are likely to advance to the next stage with ease. Even so, they need to keep players healthy because increasingly powerful opponents await.
AC Milan Stages an Incredible Comeback
The visitors are surging in the standings and a victory against Juventus would bring them back in the mix for a European league berth. They have a real shot at playing in Europa League next season and they didn’t give up completely on the Champions League. On top of that, they are highly motivated to cause a major upset in Turin, against their archrivals.
Juventus is clearly the better team but right now they lack the motivation to go for a lopsided victory. By comparison, AC Milan is in dire need of points and has no other trophy to fight for. Punters should bet on the visitors not to lose by two goals or more at spectacular odds of 13/20 offered by bet365 Sports.
