Serie A 2022-23
Milan are clearly not in the best shape, as the team suffered a very serious defeat to Chelsea on October 5 in the Champions League. The hosts conceded 3 goals and could not even answer the opponent.
This failure was the second in the last three matches for the club. Previously, they lost to Napoli 1:2 in the Serie A tournament. The Milanese did not lose and now they have 17 points scored, with which they occupy 5th place in the standings.
In the last round, Milan defeated Empoli on the road. Before that, also on the road, he beat Sampdoria and defeated Inter (3-2).
If we compare the results of the guests in September with their current results, we can see an improvement. Since the beginning of October, Juventus have played two matches and both were successful.
On October 2, Juventus beat Bologna (3-0). A few days later, they dealt with Maccabi Haifa (3-1) in the Champions League, where they occupy 3rd place in the standings H. All because they started with two defeats, losing to PSG and Benfica.
The defeat of Bologna in Serie A was a good success for Juventus after they lost (0-1) to Monza and drew with Salernitana (2-2). The visitors are currently 7th in the table with 13 points in Serie A 2022-23.

|AC Milan win 2.05||Draw 3.40||Juventus win 3.75|
Milan beat their local rivals Inter at home last month and scored 13 goals in five league home matches.
Juventus, meanwhile, have struggled this season, scoring just one goal in three league matches.
Although both teams have Champions League commitments next week, this should not affect play and a scoring draw could follow.
Prediction for this match: total under 2.5.
