Serie A Preview: Juventus - AC Milan

Massimiliano Allegri's men are still in a precarious position in Serie A but are chasing a third win on the trot on Sunday against Antonio Conte's league holders

Scudetto holders Juventus will look to extend its unbeaten start to this season's Serie A when it hosts AC Milan on Sunday.

Antonio Conte's men are one of four sides yet to lose in the league in 2013-14 but face a Rossoneri outfit which has been defeated just once in all competitions since the opening-day reversal against Hellas Verona.

Juventus - which sits fourth heading into gameweek seven - has won its last three league games but followed up derby success over Torino with a second successive draw in the Champions League on Wednesday - a 2-2 result at home to Galatasaray.

Carlos Tevez is currently Juve's joint-top goalscorer with three goals in the league, though he has not hit the back of the net in the last three games.

Milan captain Riccardo Montolivo made his return to Massimiliano Allegri's starting XI in the 1-1 draw with Ajax on Tuesday following a muscle strain, although the likes of Stephan El Shaarawy (foot) and Kaka (thigh) remain major doubts as they trained in a group aside from the first team on Friday.

While Tevez is likely to feature for the Bianconeri, Milan will be without its main marksman, Mario Balotelli.

The Italian, who has scored five goals in all competitions this season, was sent off in the Rossoneri's 2-1 defeat to Napoli in September and will watch from the sidelines for the final time in his three-game ban.

While Balotelli has been in impressive form this season, strike partner Alessandro Matri is yet to score for the San Siro outfit - which is placed ninth in Serie A due to struggling to win domestically this season - since joining from Juve in August.
