Juventus' Alessandro Matri: AC Milan are still the favourites

The former Cagliari striker feels that the Old Lady are the underdogs in Saturday's top-of-the-table clash at San Siro and is unsure whether he will start the encounter
Juventus attacker Alessandro Matri has stated his belief that AC Milan are the favourites in Saturday's highly anticipated Serie A encounter at San Siro.

The Old Lady have already defeated that reigning champions twice in the 2011-12 campaign, but Matri believes that the league leaders are the favourites to bag the full three points on Saturday evening.

"Milan are still the favourites in my opinion, but we are growing in confidence. We will attack them right from the start," Matri was quoted as saying by Tuttosport.

The former Cagliari star then discussed his chances of featuring from the start at San Siro, and stressed that he has no idea yet whether he will be part of the starting XI.

"I don't know yet whether I will start or [Marco] Borriello. We will find out at the stadium who starts."

The 27-year-old Matri has so far scored nine goals in 21 Serie A appearances this term.
