Juventus - AC Milan Betting Preview: Backing goals at both ends in this Coppa Italia clash

Despite their struggles this season, Al Hain-Cole expects the Rossoneri's potent attack to make up for their suspect back line by hitting the back of the net against the champions
While league leaders Juventus look like a side capable of recapturing their status as the dominant force in Italian football, rivals AC Milan are a team in transition, and are struggling to mount a title challenge after selling some key players in the summer.

However, Massimo Allegri's side have the chance to get one over on the Serie A champions when they visit Turin for their Coppa Italia quarter-final on Wednesday, with a semi-final against Lazio up for grabs.

The Rossoneri have already beaten the champions this season, winning 1-0 at San Siro back in November, but they are major outsiders at 15/4 (4.75) with Bet365  to emerge victorious in this match.

Antonio Conte's men suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at home to 10-man Sampdoria on Sunday, but they are available at just 3/4 (1.75) to bounce back with a win this evening.

These two sides drew 2-2 after extra-time in last season's Coppa Italia clash at the Juventus Stadium, and you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on another stalemate taking place this time out.

Milan seem to be missing the calming presence of Thiago Silva at the back more than Zlatan Ibrahimovic's goals at the other end of the pitch, as they have had little trouble in hitting the back of the net this season, but look shaky in defence.

Allegri's men have not kept a single clean sheet away from home all season, but have managed to score in all but one of the those 13 games, so odds of 8/11 (1.73) look like a sound investment for both teams to score tonight.

The man charged with filling Ibrahimovic's sizable boots this season is Stephan El Shaarawy, and the young Italy international is proving to be more than up to the challenge.

Considering the 20-year-old is the second-top scorer in the country at the moment, odds of 11/5 (3.20) are surely far too good to pass up on him to hit the back of the net in this game.

Both teams to score at 8/11 (1.73) with Bet365
Stephan El Shaarawy to score anytime at 11/5 (3.20) with Bet365
