Why Bet On Juventus (17-2-0)?
Why should you consider betting on Juventus in this match? Well, there are a bunch of good reasons starting with the fact that The Bianconeri have won each of their last five matches and comes into this affair off a 2-0 shutout win over Bologna on Saturday.
Then, there’s the fact that Juventus simply has more talent on their roster than AC Milan, starting with world class superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be well-rested for this contest after sitting out Juve’s last match. Juventus had no problems reaching the Coppa Italia quarters the last time out as Frederico Bernardeschi and Moise Kean found the back of the net in the win. Juventus has yet to taste defeat in Italian Serie A match play and has scored 38 goals while allowing just 11 to sit at +27 in the goal differential department.
Why Bet On AC Milan (8-7-4)?
Why should you consider betting on AC Milan in this match? Well, there’s the fact that they’ve won two straight and come into this one feeling good about themselves after taking out Sampdoria 2-0 on Saturday.
Patrick Cutrone came off the bench to score a pair of goals in extra time to lift Milan to the win and put his team into the Coppa Italia quarterfinals. AC Milan sits in fifth place in the Italian Serie A table with 26 goals scored and 20 allowed to sit at a modest +6 in the goal differential department.
Expert Analysis and Prediction for Juventus vs AC Milan
Juventus has won each of their last six meetings against Milan in all competitions since losing on penalties in the 2016 Supercoppa Italiana in Qatar. Going further back, Juventus has won limited AC Milan to a paltry two wins in the last 17 meetings overall. Juventus also recorded a 2-0 win over their rivals in November as Mandzukic and Ronaldo both found the back of the net.
With Ronaldo and several other starters back in the lineup for this affair after getting the past week off, I’m fully expecting Juventus to dominate their overmatched opponents in this one. Juventus gets the win this one by a pair of goals.
