A heavyweight clash takes place in Serie A on Saturday as Milan take on Juventus at the San Siro.

Having picked up a first win in five league games by beating Chievo 4-1 on Wednesday, the Rossoneri are available at 3/1 (4.00) with bet365 to build on that result with an impressive victory over the champions.

Massimiliano Allegri’s team also recorded a 4-1 victory of their own over SPAL in midweek, and are on offer at 10/11 (1.91) to come out on top against his former club.

None of the last 10 league encounters between these sides have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them cancelling each other out in this one.

After a summer of heavy investment in the transfer window, a disappointing start to the season has seen Vincenzo Montella come under severe pressure and while the convincing win over Chievo will have bought him some breathing space, this test against Italy’s number one team could have a significant impact on dictating his long term future.

Unfortunately for the former Sampdoria manager, he is faced with a side in confident spirits after two convincing wins in a row that saw them score 10 goals - taking their total to an impressive 31 in 10 league games this season.

Having conceded nine goals in other big games against Lazio, Roma and Internazionale so far this season, it is hard to see Milan standing up to such a prolific frontline here, but they may have some joy at the other end of the pitch against a Bianconeri defence that has been uncharacteristically shaky recently, going five games without a clean sheet.

With a high-scoring game therefore looking likely, even odds (2.00) seem generous on over 2.5 goals being scored for the 13th time in 15 matches involving Juventus this season.
