Expert analysis AC Milan

For AC Milan, it is the second championship home match within a few days. Stefano Pioli’s team faced Spezia at home on Monday. The Rossoneri were beaten 2-1 by the 15th placed team after an incredible final phase.

After a lead through Rafael Leão in the 45th minute, the Ligurians turned the game around. Kevin Agudelo equalized, and Emmanuel Gyasi completed the catch-up in the 96th minute. But a few moments before, referee Marco Serra completely forgot the advantage rule for an attack by Junior Messias.

This broke a streak of three straight Serie A victories for the Rossoneri ahead of the classic AC Milan vs. Juventus. Strictly speaking, this winning streak began after a 0-1 home defeat against third-placed Napoli. And in the appearance against the team from the city at the feet of Vesuvius, the Rossoneri were also deprived of at least one point. Franck Kessié, who reached the round of sixteen at the Africa Cup with Côte d’Ivoire, was denied a valid goal.

Afterwards, initially a 4-2 at eleventh-placed Empoli, a 3-1 home win against seventh-placed AS Roma and a 3-0 at fourth-last-placed Venezia followed. The latter match was also the only one in AC Milan’s five most recent competitive matches in which goals were not scored by both teams. This event also coincided with last week’s 3-1 home win after extra time against second-bottom Genoa in the Coppa Italia.

In addition to Kessié, another player, Senegal’s Fodé Ballo-Touré, is participating in the AFCON. Moreover, Pioli must do for the top match without, among others, Fikayo Tomori, Pietro Pellegri and Simon Kjær. The Danish team captain will definitely be out until the end of the season. On the other hand, Sandro Tonali and Alessio Romagnoli are available again after a suspension and a COVID-19 infection respectively.

Expert analysis Juventus

Juventus competed in the round of sixteen of the Coppa Italia this week and celebrated a 4-1 home win over fifth-bottom Sampdoria on Tuesday. In this competition, the starting line-ups are usually extremely diverse, and therefore the games cannot be taken as unconditional yardsticks.

However, the Old Lady managed the seventh victory in ten matches against league rivals. The third exception happened on 12 January, also at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. Massimiliano Allegri’s team was defeated in the Super Cup by leaders and arch-rivals Inter Milan after a 1-1 draw in extra time. The home side scored the winning goal in the final minute.

Juventus responded immediately to this setback, beating 14th-placed Udinese 2-0 at home on 15 January. It was the first time the fifth-placed team played to nil after the Christmas break. After all, the year had begun for the Bianconeri with a 1-1 home draw against Napoli and a 4-3 at AS Roma. In total, both teams scored in four of Juventus’ last five competitive matches so far.

Unlike their upcoming opponents AC Milan, Juventus do not have any players under contract who are participating in the Africa Cup. Allegri must do exclusively without Federico Chiesa, who is out for months, and Leonardo Bonucci, who is injured too. On the other hand, Aaron Ramsey returns to the team after overcoming a COVID-19 infection.

Head-to-head comparison AC Milan – Juventus

The first encounter between AC Milan and Juventus in Serie A 2021/2022 took place on 19 September and ended in a 1-1 draw. Before that, both clashes last season resulted in away victories. On that occasion, AC Milan vs. Juventus experienced a 1-3 home defeat and a 3-0 away win.

Our betting tip and the best odds

In the AC Milan vs. Juventus clash, two teams who are on an equal footing compete against each other. This is also reflected in the odds for three-way bets. As a result, those on the 1, the X and the 2 are more attractive, but we would not take that risk.

Instead, before the AC Milan vs. Juventus match, we suggest you wagers on the fact that both teams will score goals. This event applied to four of the Devil’s last five competitive games so far and opponents ranked in the second half of the table managed to do so. The same coincides with four of the Old Lady’s most recent five appearances.

Alice is half Austrian and half Italian. That's why she experienced the 1990 World Cup in Italy at first hand. And that awakened her enthusiasm for football. Since she has loved writing since childhood, Alice began to study journalism while still at school. It was very convenient for her that her class took part in a project of a German daily newspaper. She was also allowed to write for the children's pages of an Austrian daily newspaper and to get a taste of the sports department of the same medium. This is how she received her first press accreditations, which was of course anything but a matter of course for the then 18-year-old. Although she was partly advised against it, Alice decided to study journalism and communication sciences. After a few years, she decided to use the exams she had taken as an elective. Nevertheless, she applies the knowledge she has acquired in her further professional life. The same applies to her language skills. In addition to her mother tongues German and Italian, Alice is also proficient in English and Spanish. She also understands French and can use this language in research. During her studies, Alice was involved in an Austrian football club. At the same time, she wrote for a total of three Austrian portals and worked as an Austria correspondent for an Italian-language online medium. This collaboration started during Giovanni Trapattoni's era at Red Bull Salzburg and continued during EURO 2008. This gave her the opportunity to interact with Trapattoni as well as with Italian journalists. From the following year, Alice initially worked with a Swiss portal before discovering sports betting content for herself. On the one hand, this kept her in sports journalism, and on the other, it broadened her horizons. And that both in the context of the sports betting industry and with other sports as well as countries. In the field of sports journalism, she focused in particular on football from around the world, volleyball and beach volleyball. In addition, she naturally wrote several guides, bookmaker profiles, bonus articles and other content for betting enthusiasts. She did this for the same company for about ten years, writing articles in German and Italian. She also built the Italian-language website together with the managing director. Meanwhile, Alice started working with another Austrian football club. Furthermore, she joined the Association Internationale de la Presse Sportive (AIPS) in 2016. This gives her the opportunity to watch teams and athletes on the ground relatively often. Not only sports betting, but also radio In January 2019, the next step in her professional development followed. For: she started creating premium content on the topic of sports betting. In the process, she finally put out feelers to almost all countries and all continents. And this was not least due to the fact that both German and English-speaking users subscribed to her content. Nevertheless, Alice continued to use her knowledge of Italian, among other things. On the one hand, because she regularly exchanges ideas with Italian colleagues, and on the other, because she works with a web radio station. The Corona crisis had a strong impact on the sports world and on interest in sports betting, primarily in the early days. Therefore, a fresh start was necessary and, on balance, Alice found the fields of activity that suited her best. She also writes articles for an agency on almost all disciplines as well as on eSports and content for a German online medium. Alice is half Austrian and half Italian. That's why she experienced the 1990 World Cup in Italy at first hand. And that awakened her enthusiasm for football.
