Juventus and AC Milan lock horns on Sunday night for arguably the biggest match in Serie A this weekend.

Life without Cristiano Ronaldo has not been kind to Juventus. The Bianconeri are winless after three games, leaving them down in 16th-place in Serie A on a single point. A 3-0 midweek Champions League win over Malmo, as well as the returns for key men, could give them the boost they so desperately need.

AC Milan, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record going in Serie A. The Rossoneri have enjoyed a flawless start to the season and overcame Lazio 2-0 in convincing fashion last weekend. They currently sit third in the standings on nine points but will be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic again.

Let’s have a look at the form of both sides and the stats from their previous encounters to come up with a reasonable betting prediction.
