One of the most eagerly-anticipated fixtures on the Serie A calendar will take place at Allianz Stadium as seventh-placed Juventus welcomes fourth-placed AC Milan. You can live bet on the Italian top-flight league action by using our sportsbook.
Juventus: Low Confidence
Juventus looks to bounce back from one of its worst weeks in recent history as it welcomes Milan to Allianz Stadium. A 10-point penalty took the club out of the Serie A top six on the same day it was hammered by lowly Empoli.
Juventus was initially deducted 15 points for financial irregularities and false accounting concerning past transfer dealings. The ruling also came with bans for multiple ex-board members. Juventus appealed the punishment and the points were temporarily restored, but a new deduction was announced on May 22, with the Turin side losing 10 points this time around.
Massimiliano Allegri now has the unenviable task of rallying his players to save their season. After Monday’s game against Empoli, Juventus will take on AC Milan on Sunday in the season’s last game. However, not all is lost, Juventus has an opportunity to make up ground on one of its top-four rivals in Milan this weekend. With just seven points separating third place and Juventus in seventh, the possibility remains for the club to redeem itself. Still, we can’t trust it enough to include it in our Serie A picks and parlays.
Allegri can welcome Juan Cuadrado and Danilo back from suspension for Sunday’s game, with both expected to slot back into the starting line-up. Juventus remains without several senior players, with Leonardo Bonucci, Paul Pogba, Mattia De Sciglio and Fabio Miretti all out injured.
AC Milan: Dangerous on the Break
AC Milan received a much-needed confidence boost against Sampdoria last weekend. Stefano Pioli’s side put five goals past the recently relegated side. But the coach will be very aware that an attacking display may not be what is needed this Sunday.
AC Milan is now sitting fourth in the standings, three points above fifth-placed Atalanta and it must win on Sunday to maintain that lead, so if you’re betting online, the value is definitely on AC Milan to return home with at least one point.
The team has not been one of the best in the league defensively this season. But given the importance of Sunday’s game, it may well succeed in keeping the scoreline down. Few changes are expected from Pioli following an impressive Milan performance last weekend. Ismael Bennacer and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are out injured, while Malik Thiaw is likely to start ahead of Pierre Kalulu or Simon Kjaer.
Olivier Giroud proved age is just a number as he hit his 10th career hat-trick in the club’s 5-1 win over Sampdoria last weekend, meaning he has now scored a treble in eight different club competitions.
Juventus vs AC Milan Head-to-Head
With a five-point gap to AC Milan and only six points left to play for, Juventus needs three here to stand even a slither of a chance at a top-four finish. Meanwhile, AC Milan can book its seat at Europe’s top table if it can extend its three-game unbeaten run away against Juventus.
The visitors won just one of their previous nine away games. AC Milan has picked up points from half of their away league games as pre-match outsiders this season. Juventus is the best home team in the league, with 13 wins in 18 home fixtures and 38 goals scored.

Juventus vs AC Milan Picks and Prediction
The hosts enter this clash as slight favorites, priced at +130 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Serie A odds, while the goal line is set at 2½.
Juventus’ desperation to secure a win could play into their visitors’ hands, as they have been at their best when playing on the counter-attack this season. By leaving just Rafael Leao and Giroud up front, AC Milan has been able to remain defensively compact while offering a threat behind. We expect AC Milan to return home with at least one point and secure its Champions League spot. As the hosts look to push on, it may be worth a bet on Leao to score on the break, securing a win against the odds.
