A golden moment in the 77th minute brings the old lady the renewed championship lead and leaves disappointed Rossoneri back. Once again, Milan has kept up very well and was equal, but the attacking game of the Milan remains the big drawback. Graduations within the penalty area were of absolute rarity, which made it possible for a flawless Wojciech Szczęsny to prove himself time after time. Although Juventus acted as haphazardly on the verge of the sixteen, but took advantage of Dybala, the one chance that offered them. After the international break, the Bianconeri travel to Bergamo to play against Atalanta, while Milan has to first regather before they receive Napoli in two weeks.
That should have been it. Juve comes back to the ball, Dybala runs to Romagnoli and leaves no chance. Only at Donnarumma he fails, but the corner takes a lot of time from the clock.
Next corner for Milan, which is extended at the first post. But Wojciech Szczęsny wants to be player of the game today and intercepts the edge despite some opponents.

De Ligt heads the cross to the corner.
At the height of the sixteen, Milan brings out a free kick on the left sideline.
Substitute with AC Milan: Ante Rebić
Substitute with AC Milan: Lucas Paqueta
Çalhanoğlu tries it from a distance, runs in from half a left and pulls right onto the far corner. But again, the well-laid Szczęsny is on the spot.
And Juve wants to continue now, even though the problem of getting the ball into the penalty area persists.
For Milan, this is after the late goal against Lazio a renewed stroke of the neck, which they now have to shake off. They just do not get their good performances over the full 90 minutes over time.

In the subsequent attack Çalhanoğlu draws a free kick from 27 meters, for which he is of course ready himself.
Donnarumma is warned by Maresca for a time kick-off, but he drops the yellow card again.
The spectators moan every minute, because the mistakes become more banal and frivolous.
Substitute at Juventus: Adrien Rabiot
Replacement at Juventus: Blaise Matuidi
Matuidi is lying on the floor with pain in the rib area and Sarri is preparing a change. For the French, it is probably not much further.
Another premature conclusion of the old lady, who actually gets plenty of space, but in the form of Dybala from over 20 meters, instead of again looking for the other players. So Donnarumma can easily catch the low shot.
Another luckless game for Piątek ends in a substitution.
Substitute with AC Milan: Rafael Leão
Substitute with AC Milan: Krzysztof Piątek
That's where the Bianconeri get it. Douglas Costa gets plenty of space on the left and serves Matuidi in the back. However, the Frenchman gets into reserve and shovels the leather over the crossbar.
Both teams still can not make it into the opponent's penalty area. Many attacks end in inaccurate passports or hopeless dribbles.
Change on both sides. Pioli dismisses Krunić, who is threatened with yellow and red, while Maurizio Sarri takes the matchmaker from Moscow.
Replacement at Juventus: Douglas Costa
Substitutions at Juventus: Federico Bernardeschi
Substitute with AC Milan: Giacomo Bonaventura
Substitute with AC Milan: Rade Krunić
The game is getting hotter and Maresca has to explain more often why he makes this or that decision. Many smaller fouls disturb the game flow.
Piątek appears in the penalty area! Pressured by the opponent tries the Pole in the far corner to meet, but once again fails to Szczęsny. That would have been offside anyway.
Yellow card for Juan Cuadrado (Juventus)
The Colombian kicked the ball a few meters away and sees consistent yellow.
Greetings, unobtrusive Cristiano Ronaldo says goodbye to the cabin. Dybala comes on the field and wants to further polish his good record against Milan.
Replacement at Juventus: Paulo Dybala
Replacement at Juventus: Cristiano Ronaldo

Cuadrado tries to put Higuain on the right side of the box, but the pass gets a bit too long and lands in Donnaruma's arms.
No changes on both sides, but a game that quickly resembles the first half.
Kick-off 2nd half
The pace was there in this game, only the chances were missing over large parts. Juventus had more possession, but struggled just as hard as Milan to get into the box. In the 14th and 25th minute, both teams came to scoring opportunities within the penalty area, after which idling was announced for a long time. Only shortly before the half-time, the number of strokes increased again by shots outside the penalty areas. However, these did not pose any great danger, which is why the 0: 0 so far okay.
Piątek gets the next chance and moves from the right into the box. His tight shot on the short corner, however, his Polish national team colleagues clarify aside.
Official stoppage time (minutes): 1
Yellow card for Theo Hernandez (AC Milan)
Theo Hernandez from a distance! Good and happy 25 meters from the gate Hernandez pulls off with full force. But Szczęsny quickly dives into the left corner and parries.
Ronaldo has a heart. The Portuguese gets the ball leaked at the sixteen corner, turns fast and closes immediately. From the turn of the shot is too out of place and in Nachfassen Donnarumma secures the leather.
Yellow card for Rade Krunic (AC Milan)
But then it is too much, because Krunić Bernadeschi with a lot of speed from the side umgratscht.
Only seven fouls after almost 40 minutes underline this perception, which creates a fluid game, but unfortunately takes place mostly between the penalty areas.
So far, referee Maresca is riding a generous track and letting a lot of running. So Cuadrado must be surprised when after a lot of physical effort a free-kick is whistled against him, because he has fallen in the fall with his hands after the ball.
Both teams have played about the same number of passes so far and have a similar fit. This, of course, speaks for the balance during the first 35 minutes.
Bentancur must be treated after he gets in the duel first the arm of Çalhanoğlu, who then accidentally kick him on the knee in the fall. But it seems to continue.
Important that Pjanić intervenes. On the left in the penalty area, Çalhanoğlu suddenly appears and sights the goal. At the last moment the Bosnian blocks the shot attempt.
Surrounded by Milanese Bernardeschi trades the leather along the edge of the box until he pulls off to the left. His tight graduation flies just over the left corner.
Definitely a good start for Milan, who have conceded only two goals this season within the first 30 minutes anyway. The powerful beginning of the Bianconeri they have survived unscathed and turned into their own ball possession phases.
Opposite slips Pjanić a shot over the slippers. The ball sails far past the gate.
Szczęsny fights a header from an angle! The Rossoneri play around the penalty area Turin free until they flank Lucas Paqueta. The head of the net cleans the ball from the penalty spot, but Wojciech Szczęsny still gets his hand on the ball.
On both sides there was so far only a few clear chances. It lacks the last and penultimate pass to overcome the defensive chains.
Milan does not find the way into the Bianconeri penalty area, although they play for a minute or so.
Just over 20 meters from the goal Bonucci is completely free and has the ball on the foot. But instead of the conclusion he tries a pass into the box, on which no other player was prepared.
Good chance for the Rossoneri! Suso strikes a cross into the Krzysztof Piątek run from the halffield. However, the Pole heads freestanding right past the goal.
From the sideline Ronaldo plays a great pass on Higuain, who has to finish from a close range but from a very acute angle. Donnarumma clears her feet.
Milan turns up at the sixteenth of Juve and is almost outranked. On the right side Conti wins the duel with Bernardeschi and prevents worse.
Both defensive series have found each other better and do not allow to fill so many gaps. Nevertheless, Turin is clearly the leading team here.
After a nice pass from Bernardeschi, Gonzalo Higuain finds himself on the right side of the box and looks for Ronaldo with a shallow pass. However, the Portuguese has not come in and Milan can clarify.
It's an intense start to this game. Milan is looking for ballon conquest immediately the way forward and also Juve wastes no time in its own half.
Rade Krunić missed the conclusion from promising position. After a mistake in the black and white background Krunić is suddenly free at the edge of the box. But instead of the direct conclusion, he still tries a double pass, but gets stuck.
Miralem Pjanić fits the ball flat on the first post, gets her back directly before he slips the high flank in the middle. There is a throw-in from the other side.
Juventus starts off powerfully and takes the first corner after 56 seconds.
And already both teams are in the field preparing for the kick-off.
Referee of today's match is Fabio Maresca. The Neapolitan already whistled Bianconeri's 1-0 win against Parma on Matchday 1. In contrast, it is the first Milan game under his leadership this season. After all, the Rossoneri have not lost in the years before none of their six games that has whistled Maresca. Assist him today Fabiano Preti and Ciro Carbone on the sidelines.
It is also clear that Paulo Dybala will not start. But Milan is one of his favorite opponents: The Argentinian scored six goals against the Rossoneri. Only against Lazio and Udinese Calcio he met more often.
By contrast, at the end of the English week, Sarri brings the entire chapel back to the field. Danilo, Daniele Rugani, Sami Khedira and Adrien Rabiot sit on the bench after narrow victory against Lokomotiv Moscow. Aaron Ramsey is not even in the squad anymore. Instead of them will start Matthijs de Ligt, Blaise Matuidi, Rodrigo Bentancur, Juan Cuadrado and Federico Bernardeschi.
To take one or three points, Pioli changes despite his recent defeat against Lazio only to two positions. Andrea Conti replaces Davide Calabria in defense. And for Samu Castillejo, the recovered Suso moves into the starting line-up of the Rossoneri.
A glimpse into the glorious past could bring some hope to the guests. After all, no team in the world has won against Juve more often in Turin than the Rossoneri did. There are 21 wins in the statistics. In addition, the Bianconeri bring an unobtrusive weakness in this season. Although they win almost all their games, but only twice with two or more goals advantage (2-0 against SPAL, 3-0 against Bayer Leverkusen). They let their opponents until the end of the chance for a point win.
It would take Milan and coach Stefano Pioli nothing more urgent than a victory. Since the 54-year-old has taken over the team a few weeks ago, the Milan are only on meager four points from four games and would slip in a defeat to the 14th place. The only problem is that the Rossoneri have recently mutated into a kind of favorite opponent of Juve. Thus, the old lady in the league 36 of 39 possible points from the last 13 duels against Milan. Since 2016, they have not lost to the AC.
In any case, in the Turin alliance arena usually only the old lady wins. In this season, they have not even awarded points across all competitions and have been undefeated since 26 home games. Since moving to the new stadium, the Milanese have felt this strength. In eight attempts they traded eight defeats. The last four away games against the Rossoneri Juve decided for himself.
The Italian champions from Turin are, surprisingly, not in the first place in Serie A before the duel, but can beat Inter Milan again with a win against Milan. The AC is thus faced with a head-breaking task: Either they hold their own archenemy at the top or they slip into the crisis. Winning is extremely difficult.
Welcome to the conclusion of the Italian Football Sunday. At 20:45, Juventus receives AC Milan at the Allianz Arena.
