'A great night for football lovers', 'This game will be different to the last two' - Goal.com readers tip AC Milan to beat Juventus

The Rossoneri just about get the nod from those who voted in our poll, with just over 100 votes the difference between the two great rivals ahead of the clash at San Siro
AC Milan will overcome Juventus in tonight's Serie A showdown at San Siro, according to Goal.com readers ... but only just.

Over five-and-a-half thousand votes were cast in our poll which asked you to give your verdict on who will prevail in the huge fixture this evening. And, just as the two sides are separated by only a point at the top of the league table, only 121 votes divided the clubs in our poll.

Of 5,650 votes cast, 45.9 per cent (2,595) said that they expect Milan to take the three points and extend their lead at the top of Serie A. But that was very nearly offset by Juventus' 2,474 votes (43.8%), as the evenly-weighted nature of the contest shone through in the results.

Juve still have a game in hand, of course, meaning that a share of the spoils would favour the Bianconeri on the league ladder, but only 581 people believe the draw to be the likely result.

The full poll results are below, with some of your reactions also featured.

Its a great night for football lovers; surely the biggest league game of the season..Serie A needs a strong Juve; happy for them, am sure they will qualify for champ league too and do well. But i expect my Milan to win this weekend..hoping for a double this year Champ League and Serie A..Forza Milano!!!!

milan, juventus: im a milan fan and it will be really awesome if milan beat juventus now!! its a fact that milan's squad is WAYYYYY better than juve's but what lacking in milan, is the HUNGER!!! juve's hunger is really admirable and thats what drives them to the top spot. if only milan had that hunger..... :(

bobsaget, italia: I just hope Milan don't lose any players to injury so they can be healthy in the Champions League, Italy needs to get that CL spot back!

Matt, Toronto: I cant believe all these Chirping Juve fans, Yea congrats you beat us twice this season, did you guys have half the injuries weve had all season? Not to mention Our extra CL matches, Yet were still keeping you guys on your heals for the scudetto. Dont be so cocky this weekends game is going to be different than both past 2 meetings.

zoidberg, new york: This is another Barca v. Madrid. Juventus already defeated AC Milan or should I say dominated them back in November plus they beat them in the San Siro to take a lead in the Coppa Italia. I'm a Juve fan and I believe we can lose this weekend, but Juventus will take Milan in Coppa Italia and hopefully Milan will go as far as winning the Champions League, but that will give Juve an edge on winning the Scudetto. Milan have a lot of injuries and realistically can only win one title CL or Serie A.

Juventino, London: How can people say(especially Milanisti) that Juve are average? So this average team beat you twice, Inter, Lazio.....we have goals from more than just one or two targets. Milan rely on individuals, while Juve play as a team. Goals come from everywhere. Defence, Midfield, forwards....It doesn't matter. Juve win 3-1 Goals from Vucinic, Marchisio, and Chiellini. Milans goal from El Shaarawy. I hope the game is clean,( that the refs let them play) and wide open.

old lady (OG), turin:
i think milan fans are letting the arsenal game go to their heads. nothing like a good reality check on saturday to wake them up. like i said most games is won in midfield. juve has the best midfield in serie a. M-V-P midfield. marchisio-vidal-pirlo. boateng, ambrosini, van bommel, nocerino cant match it. plus juve most likely will play a 3-5-2 which is just like the 3-4-1-2 that napoli plays that gives milan so much trouble. only thing juve is possesion team while napoli are all counter-attacking.

Saba, Lagos, nigeria: Juve is back and better,i hope for nothing other than victory for the bianconeri. The game will end 3-1 in favour of juve. Go for glory boys we are always the best in italy. Forza juve forza italy
