When it comes to domestic games in Italy, it doesn’t get much bigger than Juventus v AC Milan and this is the game to look out for this evening.
Just because these are the two of the most famous teams in Italy doesn’t mean they are two of the best teams right now. In fact, after four games of the new campaign, the league table has a rather unfamiliar look to it.

Juventus are doing as expected, sitting 2nd in the table after two wins and two draws so far. They have scored seven goals and conceded three in this time, so it has been a solid start.
AC Milan on the other hand are down in 12th having won just once so far this season. This victory game in the most recent encounter though, so perhaps this is where their improved form begins.
They certainly don’t want to be cast to far adrift from the top two or three teams, even at this early stage of the season.
If they are to challenge for first place, they need to get themselves back in touch and offer up a more solid defence of their title. With this in mind, victory at Juventus would be very welcome indeed.
In this fixture last year, AC Milan managed a 1-0 away victory and they would be delighted with a repeat showing tonight. A tight defence and one game changing attack represents a perfect performance for the Italian champions.
Overall, Juventus go into this game in positive mood after a good start, AC Milan go into it determined to kick start their league campaign.
Looking at the team news for this one, Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns for AC Milan against his former club, although Robinho, Gennaro Gattuso Massimo Ambrosini, Alexandre Pato, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Philippe Mexes are out injured.
For Juventus, Mirko Vucinic returns from suspension as Antonio Conte has a fully-fit squad to choose from. A luxury they will hope helps them to three points in this fascinating Serie A clash.
