As Juventus take on AC Milan at the Allianz Stadium on Saturday, we shall look at the head-to-head statistics between these two sides at Turin.
Two Italian heavyweights Juventus and AC Milan will go head-to-head at Allianz Stadium on Sunday. Even though numerous points separate them, the fanfare has never died because of the rich history of these two Serie A sides.
The Old Lady are currently first in the league table, leading the second-placed Napoli by a mammoth 18 points. On the other hand, Gennaro Gattuso’s sides are sitting fourth and continue to fight for a Champions League spot next campaign.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side faced their first defeat in the league against Genoa before the International break, but bounced back with two convincing victories over Empoli and Cagliari. On the other hand, Gattuso’s side cannot afford to drop points in this game having won only one of their last four league games.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who suffered an injury against Serbia during the International break will not take part in this game, as confirmed by the Juventus manager. The hosts need a couple of victories to confirm their title clinch and focus themselves on the Champions League as the club prepare to land their first title after 23 years.
It will be an interesting encounter as both the sides battle out for two different reasons.
