Juventus have had a great season so far and are sitting very nicely at the top of Serie A.

They are currently unbeaten and are 9 points clear of Napoli and with Cristiano Ronaldo leading the line they don’t look like slowing down anytime soon with Ronaldo being Juventus’ top scorer this season with 14 goals in 19 games.

Juventus have got a whole host of quality in their ranks including 18-year-old forward Moise Kean who scored his first goal of the season against Bologna in the Coppa Italia last week.

As for AC Milan, they are no super power they once were in Europe. Gonzalo Higuain is Milan’s top scorer in Serie A with 6 goals.

Milan seem to be the draw specialists amongst the top 6 nearly drawing as many as they have won so far this season and I believe this is down to being poor defensively as they are averaging more than 1 goal against each game.

Team News

Juventus: Mandzuckic doubt (Thigh). Cuadrado and Barzagli out of contention with long term injuries. Joao Cancelo set to return.

AC Milan: Suso will be suspended. Higuain has travelled despite speculation of him moving.

Potential Juventus Starting XI: Szczesny, De Sciglio, Bonucci, Chiellini, Sandro, Pjanic, Bentancur, Can, Dybala, Costa, Ronaldo
