Milan v Juventus prediction and betting, stats, odds. Milan have not beaten Juventus in three games in a row, but whether the Rossoneri will be able to break the streak on January 23rd will be answered in the forecast. How will the teams play?
Milan looked excellent to start the season – Stefano Pioli’s side made the fewest errors of all – and they kept a solid run of form from a defending friendly with Napoli, who got off to a perfect start. However, the rossoneri failed to carry on at their own pace throughout the first half of the season and they occasionally made mistakes which were immediately exploited by Inter, who could not keep up with them in the first half of the season.
But overall, Milan remain title contenders – they currently sit second in the table with 48 points. Leader Inter are just two points behind, but the Nerazzurri still have a game in hand. In the last fixture, Milan unexpectedly lost 1-2 to La Spezia at home, ending their unbeaten run of three games in a row.
Juventus started the league season frankly poorly, dropping out of the relegation zone early on. But Massimiliano Allegri’s side came to their senses rather quickly and progressed up the table, managing to qualify for the Champions League title at the winter break. It is unlikely to be more than that this season.
They are fifth on the table at the moment with 41 points, one point behind the cherished fourth spot, but Atalanta have played one less match. Sixth-placed Fiorentina are already seven points behind, but still have a match in hand. Juventus were beaten 2-0 by Udinese in the last round, and they reached the Italian Cup quarter-finals last week when they thrashed Sampdoria 4-1 at home.
Milan have been poor in their recent matches – the Italian have failed to beat one of the worst sides in the league in the Cup in Genoa in regulation time and they lost at home to La Spezia in the league. Juventus are in great form and will definitely try to win against their direct rivals, and it is unlikely that AC Milan, in their current form, are capable of putting up a serious fight.
We believe that the visitors have a better chance to win. Our prediction is an Asian handicap (0) on Juventus. 1xbet login are offering this outcome at odds of 2.07
Milan are in a bit of a crisis and are particularly weak at home – the Rossoneri have picked up just one win in their last nine home games. “Juventus are looking to break into the top four and they will try to use their chances – they are capable of scoring three points, but they can hardly win this one easily.
Our second bet would be a one-goal win for Juventus. Such a bet can be placed for 4.70
