For the first time in ten years, Milan is coming to the match against Juventus in Serie A as favorite or at least as equal rival. Despite the fact that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not play the match with the Old Lady as a precaution, the Rossoneri don’t have to worry to much because they can count on an adequate replacement Olivier Giroud who is back after he missed few matches because he was positive on Covid-19, but also AC Milan got Ante Rebic, who is on fire this period, he shakes the nets and shares assists all the time.
Even former Juventus captain Claudio Marchisio admits that this time Milan is the favorite in Turin against the Old Lady.
"The Rossoneri are stronger, they have a more coordinated and ready team at this moment in relation to Juve. It should be borne in mind that Allegri is reconstructing the team and that he will need time to complete the job. At Juventus, that job is harder than at other places because you are obliged to win in parallel with the reconstruction of the team. In order to do the job successfully, the cohesion of all components in the team is needed, but also in the entire club ", said Marchisio. Encouraging news for Juve is the return of Federico Chiesa. The young Italian ace will most likely not start the match from the first minute, but it is certain that he will run on the field during the game.Watch and Bet with 1xBet
Max Allegri set a small precedent on Thursday, allowing selected Juventus fans to follow the training from the stands. All of Bianconer's executives were in training center, so they could hear Allegri's show during training and see the work style of the Tuscan expert. According to what could be guessed from Allegri's rehearsals, on Sunday we will see Juve in a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 formation, with the same role interpreters. The only difference is whether the trio of Juan Quadrado, Paulo Dybala, Adrien Rabio will play behind Alvaro Morata in the line, or the triad of Quadrado-Dybala-Morata with Rabio will be deployed in the middle of the field next to Locatelli and Bentancur.
Interesting but a big duel at a distance of two goalkeepers is also announced. Szczesny started the season badly and is one of the main is that Juve has only one point after three games. Mike Maignan, on the other hand, is among the best players in Milan at the start of the championship. The Frenchman left such a good impression that there are those who ask if the Rossoneri are weakened at all by the departure of Gianluigi Donnarumma, who continues to heat the bench at PSG.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic surprised everyone with a performance in which he showed qualities that did not adorn him during his career: moderation, wisdom and patience. Ibra realizes that the stakes in the game are high and that Milan's accumulated advantage over Juve in the first three rounds enables him and the club not to take the risk of returning prematurely after the injury. Ibra wants to play the whole season, if possible, more than half of the games he recorded in the previous football year. "I'm not Superman either," sound unreal words spoken by a footballer who until just a few months ago declared himself the "God of football."
