Expert Analysis and Prediction
Juventus has gone 9-0-1 in their last 10 meetings against Milan while not losing in each of their last seven road dates against Milan. Still though, I like the way Milan is playing coming into this matchup and I believe they are playing well enough to at least salvage a draw in this matchup. With that said, I still believe the best wager for this matchup is an Over pick against the 2.5 total goals. I’m going with a final score of 2-2, though if pressed for an outright winner, I’d say Juventus is the pick to eke out the narrow road win.
