Serie A: AC Milan Set To Continue Their Unbeaten Run When They Host Juventus On Wednesday 6th Of January.



AC
Milan continued their unbeaten record in Serie A into the New Year after a comfortable 2-0 victory away from home at Benevento on Sunday despite playing with 10 men after Tonali was sent-off just after Kessie scored the penalty in the 15th-minute.




Juventus sit 5th in the Serie A table following their 4-1 home win against Udinese at the weekend. Ronaldo opened the scoring in the first half and Federico Chiesa made it 2-0 early in the second-half before Ronaldo netted a brace and Udinese pulling one back but Dybala scored a fourth deep into stoppage time.




Games between this two clubs have tended to be very close and competitive in recent seasons, but AC Milan are unbeaten in their last 3 encounters with Juventus. Two of those three meetings have ended in stalemate, but AC Milan did win the pair's last match 4-2 in July.




Before that win, a maximum of 1-goal had separated the two clubs in their last 5 head-to-heads in all competitions. AC Milan haven't lost at home this season and they remain the only team yet to taste defeat in Serie A this season, while Juventus are unbeaten on the road and should prove a tough nut for the host to crack.




Both teams have scored in 4 of AC Milan's and 3 of Juventus last 5 League games, so there is a good chance we won't see a single clean sheet. Over 2.5 goals have been produced in 4 of AC Milan's and 5 of Juventus last 6 matches in all competitions and more goals are expected in this fixture.




AC Milan will be without the suspended midfielder Tonali but full-back Hernandez returns from a one-match suspension. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still a doubt but he's expected back soon.


Juventus only concerned injury is that of Alvaro Morata but the rest of the squad should be available to make the trip to the capital for this fixture.


PREDICTION: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE.
