This encounter should have a decisive role to play then, but past head to heads don’t offer much encouragement for Milan.
Juventus are W9-D2-L1 against the Rossoneri in all competitions since the start of 2017, which includes a 3-1 win in the reverse fixture this season, while they’ve won four of five unbeaten games on home turf over this period.
The Rossoneri enjoyed spectacular form at the end of last term and the first half of this campaign, kicking off with 11 wins from 15 unbeaten games, but they’ve dropped off badly and are just W6-D2-L5 across their last 13.
They did manage a 2-0 win over 18th-placed Benevento last time out as Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned from injury, but they had lost their previous two games against Sassuolo and Lazio.
A heavy reliance on 39-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been clearly apparent, with midfielder Franck Kessie the only other player to register double figures for goals in the league this term.
The veteran Swede has returned at a pivotal moment in their season, but it’s unlikely to be a happy return to Turin and it’s worth noting that 10 of his 15 league goals were bagged across his first six appearances this season.
Juventus To Win
Most alarmingly for Milan, two of their final four fixtures are against their top-four rivals, as they also travel to Atalanta on the final day.
They’ve actually lost each of their five matches against the division’s top six in 2021 so far by a combined 13-1 scoreline, conceding three times in four of these games.
They were also dumped out of Europe by Man Utd over two legs in March, even if they put up a respectable showing against the Red Devils.
Although Juventus are more prone to the odd slip up than in years gone by, with a W4-D2-L2 record across their past eight, they’ve still won seven of 11 games since the start of March and have the big-game players to avoid embarrassment.
A victory here would go a long way to securing Champions League football, and a combination of Milan’s poor form and a dreadful record in the head to heads encourages us to back the hosts.
