Kick-off: 1945, 10/11/2019
Stadium: Juventus Stadium
Juventus have won six straight encounters with AC Milan over the past couple of seasons, keeping a clean sheet in four of those meetings.
The Bianconeri are again proving the team to beat in Serie A this term, topping the table after going 11 games without defeat, with the Rossoneri 16 points adrift in 11th.
It is hard to go for anything other than a home win to nil at 13/10 with our opening Juventus vs AC Milan prediction.
A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds
Admittedly, Juve haven’t been totally convincing this season, with eight of their nine victories in Italy’s top flight coming by a one-goal margin.
However, Maurizio Sarri’s men keep on finding a way to win and that was the case yet again in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Aaron Ramsey got the Bianconeri off to the perfect start when he opened the scoring from close range with just three minutes gone at Lokomotiv Moscow, but Aleksey Miranchuk equalised within nine minutes.
Everything then looked set for a stalemate until substitute Douglas Costa snatched a 2-1 victory deep into stoppage time after exchanging passes with Gonzalo Higuain.
“It was not one of our best performances, we left them too many chances to counter-attack and we were too slow in possession,” commented Sarri.
“I liked the way we tried to win until the final whistle, though, and finally the victory arrived with a fantastic goal by Douglas Costa.”
Juve are already through to the knockout stages of that competition, so can now focus on domestic duties, although one slight concern was Cristiano Ronaldo coming off early due to a couple of niggling injuries.
With that in mind, 3/1 for Paulo Dybala to break the deadlock takes the eye from the Juventus vs AC Milan odds.
The Argentina ace has netted in three of the last seven renewals of this fixture and should be fresh after being rested until the closing stages in Russia.
A Look At AC Milan’s Betting Odds
Milan have spent big over the past few years in a bid to bring back their glory days, but they still look to be on a downward curve.
Marco Giampolo arrived from Sampdoria to succeed Gennaro Gattuso over the summer, but he was soon replaced by Stefano Pioli following three straight defeats in September.
Ex-Fiorentina boss Pioli has yet to make much of an impact, though, beating Spal 1-0 for his sole victory in four matches.
The Rossoneri suffered another setback when edged out 2-1 by Lazio at the San Siro last Sunday and it looks a long road back for them at this stage.
They have only conceded two first-half goals under Pioli, though, so 2/1 for this to be 0-0 at the interval is worth adding to our Juventus vs AC Milan betting tips, while 6/1 for a final result of 1-0 also appeals.
