Juventus vs AC Milan 21 Nov 2015: Serie A Preview and Predictions
21 November 2015/ 1445ET
Big game is Serie A this weekend with a classic derby between Juventus and AC Milan. This game promises to be an excitement and I am sure that plenty of football fans around the world will turn their attention to Turin since this matchup is simply mouth-watering.
Firstly looking at the home side, Juventus, who have not been in great form in Serie A. This side did win their last match but they are nothing compared to the side that almost won the treble last season. The summer wasn’t the greatest for them as they lost superstars such as Carlos Tevez and Vidal who were detrimental to the squad. That being said, they still have the likes of Pogba and Moratta who are exceptional players. Overall this team has a really good squad but their form has been terrible and this inconsistency gives me doubts about how well they will do in this match.

On the other side of the coin, AC Milan are looking like a really good side now. They started the season very poorly but they are starting to notch up a few wins and they look like real contenders for a spot in the Champions League. This team has been lead well up front with Carlos Bacca scoring for fun. In addition, the midfield is starting to take good shape. The biggest problem for Milan remains the defense that looks shaky. This is very ironic considering the defensive players that AC Milan have produced in the past. This is a club who once had the likes of Maldini and Nesta, two of the greatest defenders of all time. Now they don’t have anyone close but the likes of Alex and Zapata have done ok lately and I think they will do their job this weekend as well.
Overall I think this match is going to be great with both teams doing everything possible to get the 3 points. Juventus will go into this match as favorites but I am going to go for a punt and pick AC Milan to win. Milan are in good form and they have a lot more confidence that Juventus have at the moment so I give them every chance possible to pull off an upset. Furthermore, they are at an incredible price so I think it is a great value bet.
