AC Milan vs Juventus prediction
Milan looked really well in the local derby game against Inter till the moment they have conceded the first goal. They, as visitors, had the double lead thanks to goals from Rebic and Ibrahimovic late in the first half, but once Inter got on the scoresheet it's like complete game plan collapsed for them.
Within three minutes Inter managed to level up the result, getting the lead via a set-piece and sealing the victory during the added time - without any doubt, they deserved it, showing great performance in the second.
On the other side, it remains for Milan's staff to analyze what happened with them after the first goal conceded. This loss broke an undefeated run of five, while the Cup competition remains now one of the ways to bring some joy to their fans.
Juventus got surprised a lot in the previous round, losing out 2:1 away to Verona on Saturday evening. They looked like a side that will be able to control out the things, even took the lead via a goal from Ronaldo in the 65th minute and looked better till that moment.
However, once Verona got more relaxed and started attacking, it looked like the visitors have lost the ground and couldn't revert the energy on the field to their own favor. This was now second consecutive defeat for Juventus away from home, as they now only share the first position together with Inter and are just a point above third-placed Lazio.
Central back Musacchio is expected to start here, as well as right-back Calabria - these two should be the only changes comparing to derby game last weekend. As for the visitors, goalkeeper Buffon should be between the posts, while Ramsey and Dybala are set to play in place of Costa and Higuain.
Milan will need to attack in this one, knowing that their better chances stand with the home crowd. They anyway definitely have the quality to be very threatening here and score even more than once, while Juventus anyway remains a strong favorite to progress further surely not backing to the defensive role here.
