With both teams looking very solid at the back, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Bianconeri to just get the better of a tight match against Gattuso's men

Juventus will be looking to maintain their lead at the top of Serie A when they welcome Milan to the Allianz Stadium for Saturday's heavyweight Serie A clash.

The Bianconeri are currently two points ahead of Napoli in first place, although failed to win for the first time in 13 fixtures with a 0-0 draw away to SPAL before the international break.

Latest Odds

However, having come out on top in nine of the last 10 league meetings between the teams, they are 4/6 (1.67) favourites with bet365 to return to winning ways straight away here.

Gennaro Gattuso's men have won eight and lost none of their last 10 league matches, and can be backed at 9/2 (5.50) to pull off a first victory in Turin since he struck the only goal in a 1-0 win back in 2011.

None of this pair's last 11 Serie A meetings have resulted in draws, but there are odds of 13/5 (3.60) on offer on them sharing the spoils in this one.

Team News

Giorgio Chiellini, Alex Sandro and Sami Khedira are all nearing full fitness but may be kept back for next week's Real Madrid clash, with Mehdi Benatia and Miralem Pjanic more likely to play due to suspension in the Champions League.

Alessio Romagnoli and Davide Calabria are both available again after injury, although Ignazio Abate remains sidelined and Andrea Conti could be out for the rest of the season after suffering a setback.

Tight match

Despite his team's strong record in recent encounters, Massimiliano Allegri will be expecting a tough match against his former club.

The Rossoneri have been revolutionised under Gattuso, with their success built on a strong defensive unit that has conceded just six goals in the last 10 league games.

This resistance may prove tough to crack for a home forward line that has only scored eight times in six Serie A fixtures, although there are few worries at the other end of the pitch for a defence that has been breached once in 16 in the league.

Predictions

Considering their superior quality and experience, odds of 12/5 (3.40) look like a smart bet on Juventus edging a tight match that produces under 2.5 goals.

That bet would have paid out in eight of their last 10 league matches, as well as the reverse encounter versus Milan at the San Siro.

All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
