It is already a game that counts that will take place tonight at the Allianz Stadium in Turin Rome, with a Juventus motivated to return to Inter at the head of the Serie A and a Milan in search of a point not to leave to definitively spin European cars. The opportunity for Calciomio to present the different issues of this shock!
Juventus wants international break at the top of the standings
Indeed, the men of Sarri absolutely want to go back to Inter who won last night against Hellas in order to pass the international truce in first place. The Old Lady who remain on benefits very sluggish for nearly three weeks, must finish this series of meetings by a reassuring performance against a Milan well mowed. The victory won in Moscow Tuesday night thanks to a feat by Douglas Costa has done a lot of good for the whole group and should allow to get the spirits inflated to block face Diavolo. Sarri did not know yet whether he could count on Ronaldo and De Ligt both slightly injured. However, his starting lineup will keep a great pace thanks to the wealth of its workforce.
Milan can embellish a sad start to the season
For its part, AC Milan is going through a very turbulent period that the defeat last week against Lazio has only darkened again and again. Nevertheless, the smell of a classic Serie A against Juve should mobilize a whole club that walled in the work this week on the side of Milanello. Pioli even took the opportunity to work the defense at three and could possibly test a 3-4-2-1 tonight trying to lock the corridors to block an untenable Cuadrado at his right back position. The rossoneri also have no time to lose, if they want to one day find the Champions League, since they are already eight points from fourth place. On the actual side, the real surprise is Pioli's strong choice not to call Kessie in the group for this match. The Ivorian would pay several delays in training in recent days.
Milan have not won on Juventus' field for more than 8 years! Indeed, the last victory dates back to March 2011 with a raging goal from Gattuso in the title year with Allegri. And again, Juve did not play in its new stadium in which it has never lost against the Diavolo.
Sarri at a press conference seems to have a clear idea of Rabiot's future role within his team. A shame when we think back to what the former Parisian thought of this position "In the future I see Rabiot more as a leader in defense than as a trequartista. I did not want to confuse his ideas so I installed him at a specific post. Once he has mastered it perfectly I will try to try it at other positions. "

The last Juventus-AC Milan
A four-day UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg against Ajax, Allegri has turned slightly and has notably deprived Ronaldo while Gattuso's Milan has many wounded as Donnarumma, Paqueta, Conti and Bonaventura . The Diavolo offered a good resistance and opened the score by Piatek before giving in the second half on goals from Dybala and Kean. The Old Lady can spin to an 8th consecutive title.
