Scheduled to take place at Juventus Stadium, this match pits two of Italy's footballing giants against each other in a late-season showdown. Both teams come into this match with varying degrees of form and fitness concerns. Juventus has been dealing with a series of injuries that have tested their squad depth, particularly in the midfield, while Milan, after elimination from UEFA Europa League, lost in a derby, giving the Serie A title to Inter.

Juventus vs Milan Preview 

Juventus Preview

Juventus has been navigating a tricky season with a mix of success and setbacks. During the spring, the team has been hampered by injuries to many players, especially in the midfield. This resulted in a poor run with only two wins in the last 11 matches, putting a strain on Max Allegri’s tactics. With Bologna only two points away, Juventus definitely does not want to lose its third place to bold Thiago Motta’s team. Given the squad problems of Milan, this match can be a great chance to end the team’s series of 3 matches without a win (2 draws, 1 loss).

AC Milan Preview 

AC Milan's season has also been notably disrupted by an extensive injury crisis, affecting their performance and consistency. During its urn, Milan has suffered 29 injuries this season, with a significant number of these being muscular issues. This has led to a fluctuating campaign where they initially led the Serie A table but have since faced difficulties maintaining form due to the reduced availability of key players. Moreover, the psychological stance of the team is being disrupted after elimination from Europa League and recent loss in the derby against Inter, which prompted Inter to crown as Serie A champion. With key defenders Davide Calabria and Theo Hernandez missing the upcoming match due to the disqualification, Pioli will have a serious task of organising the defence to hold Juventus. In this regard, the defensive line will be particularly hit hard, with several other first-choice defenders like Pierre Kalulu and Simon Kjaer are still sidelined with injuries.

Betting Tips for Juventus vs Milan

First to Score - Juventus

Milan has a lot of problems in their defensive line, which became especially evident in 2024. The high amount of conceded goals and defenders’ mistakes became one of the key reasons why Milan was unable to compete with Inter and could not handle Roma in the Europa League quarter finals. Moreover, the team conceded first in the last 4 out of 5 matches. Given that Juventus will aim to start the match actively, it is highly likely that the team has all the chances to score first. For this Juventus vs AC Milan prediction, Unibet gives 1.70.

Total Goals Juventus Over 1.5

With Milan weakened defence amid the upcoming match and the decent form of Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa, Juventus will definitely have chances in front of the opponent’s net. In recent matches, Milan’s defence was looking particularly vulnerable even in an optimal lineup, conceding at least two in the team’s last 3 consecutive matches. Juventus vs AC Milan odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 2.11.

Dusan Vlahovic to Score at Any Time 

Vlahovic is the best striker of the team with 16 goals in Serie A, being the second-best striker in the championship. Moreover, Serbian began to score on a regular basis after the winter break, having scored 11 goals in 2024. He had several chances in the match with Lazio and will likely have his momentum against weakened Milan’s defence. Unibet gives 2.12 for this Juventus vs. AC Milan tip.
