Juventus have a strong recent second-half record and Milan could struggle contain the visitors.
AC Milan v Juventus – Saturday 19:45, BT Sport Europe
Milan have responded to two defeats in their first three with four wins in five unbeaten games as they’ve made their most promising start to a campaign for a few years. Europe will be the aim now after a barren few seasons so rather than regarding this as a six-pointer in the title race, we think Milan will be more than happy with a point.
The Rossoneri have lost just five of 23 home matches since the start of last season but three of those were against last season’s top three finishers. Going back further their home record against this type of opposition reads W2-D1-L6 since 2013/14. They’ve particularly struggled against the Old Lady in this time, losing their last seven meetings despite being level at the break in five of them.
The Champions lost in round four to Inter in their last trip to the San Siro but such is the mental fortitude of Max Allegri’s side that they’ve since got right back on track, winning their last six in all competitions and on each occasion having the best of the second-half.
