Attempting to keep pace with Serie A leaders Napoli and Atalanta, one Scudetto hopeful will be left disappointed when AC Milan v Juventus at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Matchday 9 of the 2022/23 season ends on Saturday night.
The Bianconeri’s 3-0 win over Bologna was far more convincing than the Rossoneri’s last gasp win over Empoli last weekend, but both will have taken confidence in their respective victories, ahead of a clash that is expected to impact the domestic title and European qualification places.
AC Milan v Juventus: Predicted line-ups
AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli faces a selection headache ahead of kick-off, with several of his first-choice defence unavailable. However, that will at least allow the Italian tactician a sense of certainty, and regular centre-back pairing, Simon Kjaer and Fikayo Tomori, will provide an element of familiarity should the Dane recover from another knock.
With Juventus looking more assured during the recent visit of Bologna to Turin, we expect coach Massimiliano Allegri to set his team up in a similar way, and make few personnel changes. Winger-turned full-back Juan Cuadrado could replace Danilo, though, to test inexperienced Rossoneri left-back Fode Ballo-Toure.
AC Milan predicted XI v Juventus (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu, Dest, Tomori, Kjaer, Ballo; Tonali, Bennacer; Rebic, De Ketelaere, Leao; Giroud.
Juventus predicted XI v AC Milan (4-4-2): Szczesny; Cuadrado, Bremer, Bonucci, Alex Sandro; McKennie, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Vlahovic, Milik.
