thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com's team of experts turn their attention to the Serie A title race as they predict the results from the final six weeks to decide who they think will be crowned champions

There are just six weeks of the Serie A season remaining, with eight games separating success from failure for many of the 20 top-flight sides. For AC Milan and Juventus in particular, the run-in will be of significant consequence, with the destiny of the Scudetto still very much up in the air.

Though Juventus have led the way for much of the term, it is now Milan who are in the driver's seat. However, after Juve's 3-0 win over Napoli last week, they now sit just two points behind the Rossoneri, whose 1-1 draw at Catania saw their advantage halved.

But Milan's defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday means that both sides are on a level playing field, with no distractions for either club between now and May 13. But who will be celebrating after Week 38?

We assembled a panel of experts and asked them to predict the run-in, and judge who will win the title as a result.

Will Milan hold their nerve to come through in the final weeks? Do Juventus have what it takes to stay the course and clinch their first post-Calciopoli title? Our experts have their say below, and we'd also like you to consider the run-in yourself and tell us who you reckon will finish top in our poll.

I think Juventus will emerge triumphant because Antonio Conte has the will to push his team over the line. For their part, Milan are the better team, but they have too many injured players. The Champions League could have a negative impact not only on the minds of the players, but also on the legs, and with not too many options available, Massimiliano Allegri could be in big trouble. The match against Siena should be the deciding one for Milan. And don't forget that there is the derby and Inter would love to stop Milan on the penultimate week.

I am going to put everything I have on the line here and say that Juventus will win every single remaining game this season. On the face of it, this may seem unlikely, but if the Bianconeri can win their hardest remaining match this weekend then such a scenario is not impossible. Milan have a reasonably easy run-in and should have too much quality to beat Inter in the derby, but the away trips to Chievo and Siena will not be straightforward and it would not surprise me at all to see them slip up in one of them. Having said this, though, if Juventus don't beat Palermo this Saturday I expect Milan to win the Scudetto. So this weekend is absolutely crucial if the Old Lady are to dream of catching the Rossoneri.

Like Carlo, I believe that this weekend's trip to Palermo could be the biggest test for Juve, and the Rosanero could really put a spanner in the works, with their ability to play an efficient counterattacking game a huge danger to the Old Lady. Thereafter, they should have enough to win their remaining games, though there's always the danger of the odd slip-up as has been the case this season in many of their 14 draws. Milan look a little vulnerable right now, but they have the added bonus of a get-out clause in Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and with his input there's always the belief that they'll scrape their way through difficult fixtures and just - JUST! - see their way to the title.
