Preview: Milan vs Juventus
After failing to get past Juventus in the Coppa Italia - and thus seeing their one chance of silverware go up in smoke - Milan have suddenly sprung into action as they chase down a European football spot. Since the league restarted, the Rossoneri have won three of their last four games, including vital victories over capital based clubs Roma and Lazio. Despite dropping points against a relegation-threatened SPAL side desperate to hang on to a place in the top flight, Milan come into this game having beaten Lazio 3-0 last weekend - and perhaps having done Juventus a major favor in the race for the Scudetto.
The Rossoneri, however, won't exactly be feeling so generous to Juventus when they welcome La Vecchia Signora to the Stadio San Siro. In fact, they will be looking to take advantage of Juve's growing injury and suspension list, especially as the Bianconeri will be missing key players like Giorgio Chiellini and Paulo Dybala for this match due to injury and suspension respectively. Milan boss Stefano Pioli will also be seeking what would be his first ever win over Juventus in his entire career in this match, having lost 15 times in 20 prior attempts facing the Turin giants.
Juve, for their part, continue to surge ahead in the league. They picked up a comfortable 4-1 win over cross-town rivals Torino in last weekend's Derby della Mole, and coupled with Lazio's recent defeats, have now extended their lead on top of the table to seven points. The derby win was especially notable as star man Cristiano Ronaldo finally netted his first goal via free-kick for Juventus, thus ending a frustrating spell for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.
In any case, with the Aquile facing struggling Lecce, Juve will certainly know that their opponents could cut that lead back down to four before they take to the pitch against the Diavolo, so they'll certainly be looking to battle to victory at Milan's expense on Tuesday evening.
