One of the oldest rivalries in the Italian Serie A will play out on Epiphany as leaders AC Milan will be welcoming defending champions Juventus to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, popularly known as the San Siro on Wednesday night.
In the last 26 Serie A meetings between these two teams, AC Milan have won 6 games, while Juventus have won 17 matches, with the other 3 games ending in a draw. The Rossoneri have not lost in the last 3 meetings, winning the last encounter, after the Old Lady won the previous 5 clashes.
AC Milan will be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexis Saelemaekers, Matteo Gabbia, and Ismaël Bennacer due to injury, while Sandro Tonali is suspended. Juventus, on the other hand, will be without Álvaro Morata due to injury, while Alex Sandro tested positive for COVID-19.
AC Milan look poised to win the Scudetto this season and are the only unbeaten team in Italy, Juventus, on the other hand, have been below par under Andre Pirlo. This is the best chance for the Old Lady to make a statement, as the Rossoneri are without Zlatan. This could end in a draw, or Cristiano Ronaldo can just step up and nick it for the champions.
