The penultimate round of the Serie A season presents an interesting battle between Juventus and AC Milan. The match takes place this coming Sunday at Allianz Stadium.
Juventus got hammered in their latest outing, and could still be rattled on Sunday. If so, AC Milan are in with a good chance of lashing yet another defeat for the hosts.
Juventus are relatively average in the art of goal-scoring these days. They scored a steady 11 goals in their previous ten matches, for an average of 1.1 per game. They simultaneously allowed their opponents ten goals, or an average of one a game. Furthermore, they fought their way to four clean sheets in this run.
AC Milan head into this match on 1.7 goals per game in their last ten matches. They scored an acceptable total of 17, while also conceding nine goals. This amounts to 0.9 on average per game, where they kept their opponents from scoring four times.
The last time the pair played each other, AC Milan came out the other side as 2-0 winners and surely won't mind a repeat of that result.
Juventus vs AC Milan Prediction
Juventus claimed four points to their account in the last three matches, where they won 2-0 against Cremonese, followed by a 1-1 draw with Sevilla. Their latest game against Empoli resulted in a 4-1 defeat. Juventus showed little mercy in their past six matches at Allianz Stadium, of which they won five, drew none and lost once. They hit the target 13 times, while letting in six themselves.
AC Milan Form
In their last three matches, AC Milan lost against Spezia and Inter by 2-0 and 1-0, respectively, and beat Sampdoria by 5-1. AC Milan only have one paltry win to show from the last six away games in the Serie A. In these six matches they drew two and lost three as well as being outscored by nine goals to eight.
This particular encounter between Juventus and AC Milan looks a little trickier for the favourites, than prices with the bookmakers suggest. All things considered, though, we still believe, the home side has enough about them to pull off a win on Sunday.
Juventus won seven matches, scored 23 goals and conceded 21 in their last 17 games against teams from the top half of the Serie A table. This earned them 24 points. AC Milan earned nine wins and 31 points in their last 17 games against teams from the top half of the Serie A table. They scored 28 and conceded 17 goals in these. Juventus show off a record of 21 wins, six draws and nine defeats in the Serie A this season. AC Milan show off 18 wins, ten draws and eight defeats in the Serie A.
