OUR man in Italy, Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) looks to continue his hot streak in Serie A with a selection from Sunday night’s humdinger in Milan.
AC Milan v Juventus | Saturday 28th October 2017, 17:00 | BT Sport
Milan v Juventus is going to be the most interesting match of this Serie A round and it is going to be played at a unusual time of 5pm. I am going for goals again when Juventus are involved.
I’m persisting with this Juventus trend from the start of the season and it’s paying dividends since the Bianconeri have scored 31 goals in 10 games, a team record in the last 66 years, with only Manchester City scoring more (32) this season.
Milan should play with a very ‘dangerous’ defensive line. Leonardo Bonucci is suspended (albeit he was not performing great), and the Rossoneri are going to line up a defensive trio of Alessio Romagnoli, Cristian Zapata and Ricardo Rodriguez.
The latter is a full back with lot of offensive abilities but really lacking defensive skills, while the Colombian international Zapata has always some troubles in his 10+ year Serie A career.
That is why Juventus are going to be very dangerous. I reckon they will be able to score more than once at San Siro, and they have chances to take the three points. This could be an option to play but I prefer simply Over 2.5 Goals (1/1 Betfair) here, considering that the Bianconeri have also conceded in all of their away matches.
