Juventus will be hoping to exact revenge on Milan when the two sides come face-to-face in Turin for Friday’s high profile Serie A clash.
The Bianconeri saw a run of seven consecutive league victories over this opposition come to an end when they went down 1-0 at the San Siro back in October but are heavy 4/9 (1.44) favourites with bet365 to regain the upper hand by coming out on top here.
However, Vincenzo Montella’s men arrive at the Juventus Stadium on the back of a five-game unbeaten streak, and are on offer at 6/1 (7.00) to complete a first double over the champions since the 2009/10 season.
After a 10-game winning streak in all competitions, the hosts were held to a 1-1 draw by Udinese last time out and are available at 10/3 (4.33) to be forced to settle for a single point yet again here.
In fact, Massimiliano Allegri’s team have already gone some way to atoning for that league defeat in the reverse encounter by running out 2-1 winners in January’s Coppa Italia clash at this stadium.
With the teams also having come up against each other in Doha for the Supercoppa Italiana match just before Christmas, Friday’s encounter will be their fourth and final meeting of the season.
Rather unlucky to lose that Coppa Italia game after playing for most of the second half with 10 men and having come out on top in a penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw in the Supercoppa Italiana, the Rossoneri have certainly provided far stiffer competition to their rivals this campaign than in recent years.
While they remain up against it to secure their first ever win at this stadium at the sixth attempt, Milan will back themselves to at least find the net after failing to score just once in the last 13 games.
Considering Juventus have drawn just one blank in their last 39 Serie A fixtures, odds of 19/20 (1.95) look assured on both teams getting on the scoresheet in a competitive clash.
