Both sides will look to continue their impressive showings, and come into this cracker after dispatching Lazio and Torino respectively.
Serie A 2019/2020
Date: Tuesday July, 7th
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza
AC Milan delivered a masterclass performance last weekend to thrash title hopefuls Lazio 3-0, with veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic rolling back the years with a goal and an assist in the rousing victory.
The big Swede who set up Hakan Çalhanoğlu for the opener doubled the lead from the spot before Ante Rebiç rounded off the scoring at the Stadio Olimpico to help Milan record their third league win in four outings since the restart.
The result put them sixth on the standings, just two points behind fifth-placed Roma, although both Roma and Napoli in seventh have a game in hand.
I Rossoneri will feel confident following the latest victory, but they have not beaten Juventus in the Serie A since October 2016, losing the last six meetings between the two sides.
Juve and Cristiano Ronaldo meanwhile, come into Tuesday evening’s face-off off the back of a comfortable 4-1 victory in the Turin derby last weekend.
The Portuguese scored one of the goals, a sumptuous freekick, and assisted another as the Old Lady moved seven points clear of second-placed Lazio at the top of the table to edge even closer to another Scudetto coronation.
However, all three of Juve’s league losses this term had come on the road, and there is no hiding that the champions-elect are in for a tough assignment at San Siro.
Calhanoglu will miss out after being forced off against Lazio while Milan will again be without the services of Samu Castillejo, Mateo Musacchio and Leo Duarte through injury.
Paulo Dybala and Matthijs de Ligt are both suspended for this fixture which is a big blow for Juve.
Moreover, there is no change to their injury
situation, with Mattia De Sciglio, Alex Sandro, Sami Khedira, Giorgio Chiellini and Merih Demiral all still on the sidelines.
Head to Head
In 70 competitive meetings between these two sides, Juve have 33 wins to Milan’s 15. 22 encounters have been drawn including the last two.

AC Milan have won just one of their last 14 Serie A meetings with Juventus, losing the other 13, but their recent form simply cannot be thrown out of the window. Beating Lazio is no easy feat, and do not be surprise if they claim another big scalp here. However, we fancy this game to end all square, a result which realistically will not spell doom for the aspirations of both side, so punters can get odds of 5/2 for a fulltime draw.
Under 2.5 goals for 10/11 is a thing here, particularly with both sides going to sit deep and try to mop up pressure in what should be a tight affair.
