Thoughts on AC Milan vs Juventus
The 35-time Scudetto winners Juventus travel to the city of Milan to take on AC Milan. Unbeaten since the restart, Juventus have played three, scored nine and conceded one goal. AC Milan’s home record this season has left much to be desired. Playing 14 games, winning five, drawing five and losing four games, a very average record for such a historic football club. Juventus, on the other hand, have an excellent away record, playing 15 games, winning 10, drawing two and losing three.
The previous meeting between these sides in the Serie A resulted in a 1-0 home win for Juve, Paulo Dybala scoring the goal. It seemingly will be a game of attack vs. defense to determine the outcome of the game. Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates will attempt to pepper Gianluigi Donnarumma’s net and giving the stature of both clubs, expect this game to have some fireworks.
From Europian champions to not in Europe at all?
AC Milan are a team that has had a disappointing season given the stature of the club, sitting in 7th place now in Serie A and 29 points off league leaders, Juventus. The team comes into the game winning three of their last five matches in the league. At home this season, AC Milan averaged 1.43 points per game. However, in the last eight games, the club has registered an average of 1.75 points per game showing significant improvement.
Milan have earned a clean sheet in six of their last 14 home games, a percentage of 43%, showing promise that the San Siro is turning into a fortress once more for the Italian giants. 37% of AC Milan’s goals have been scored in the final 15 minutes of play, showing that will and desire to fight until the bitter end when both teams tire.
An interesting statistic for AC Milan would be that 21.4% of their results have ended in a 1-0 scoreline. This shows the team’s desire to protect a lead rather than brutally dismantle a team by scoring more goals.
The Old Lady on course for 36th Scudetto?
Over the past decade, Juventus has been a colossus in Italian football. Averaging a league-best of 2.50 points per game, which is absolutely staggering. This is followed up by another impressive statistic including scoring 1.60 goals per game. However, Juventus on average concedes 1.00 goal per game. To put it bluntly, isn’t fantastic, despite this, the team can show its ability to outscore opponents given their attacking firepower.
To further highlight Juventus’ attacking superiority, get a load of this statistic… They have scored three or more goals in 66.7% of their games. This is a godly statistic that the club will use to show other clubs they are yet to play, they play the game to win, and not just win, win ruthlessly.
Second top scorer in the league and sporting icon, Cristiano Ronaldo will be poised to earn his 26th goal this season. Since arriving at Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 46 league goals in 57 appearances. The legend of the game showing he still has got the killer instinct in front of goal and remains hungry for more success.

AC Milan top contributors:
- Theo Hernandez (Defender) Despite playing left-back for AC Milan, Theo Hernandez has had a renaissance season at the San Siro for the side. Bagging five goals and one assist, Hernandez has become one of the most threatening fullbacks in the league, dominating the left flank for AC Milan. He has scored three goals on his left foot and two with his right, including a venomous volley against Udinese.
- Ante Rebic (Forward) The Croatian international has bagged nine Serie A goals since joining AC Milan last summer on loan. Since the restart, Rebic has netted in 75% of the games played, forming a formidable partnership with veteran superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Juventus top contributors:
- Cristiano Ronaldo (Forward) Phenomenon, icon, legend, the list goes on for words to describe this man with a ball at his feet. With 25 league goals with a further four assists, Ronaldo continues to defy all logic at 35, still performing at the highest level week in, week out. Scoring in every single game since the restart for Juventus, it is difficult to argue why football fans around the world refer to him as the ‘G.O.A.T..’
- Paulo Dybala (Forward) On the brink of leaving Juve for the Premier League in the summer of 2019, Dybala has taken this season to once more silence his critics. Scoring 11 goals and ten assists, showing his prolific goal scoring talent mixed with the vision to play teammates in to score goals.
