Bianconeri still consistently picking up positive results minus their shocking loss against Genoa.The Turin giant picked up four wins and just one defeat in their last five fixtures.

Recent form in all competition (last five matches) :WWLLD
This last few weeks haven’t been the best for Rossoneri as they’re yet two win in their last three fixtures. After two consecutive defeats, Milan only managed a draw on their last Serie A match against Udinese.
That result didn’t give the right confidence booster for Gennaro Gattuso’s side ahead of their tough Saturday. Knowing their fourth place seat is still under threat, Milan will give their all to take all three points.
Injuries remain an issue for Juve as there are still some important names who won’t be available on Saturday. Douglas Costa, Juan Cuadrado, Cristiano Ronaldo, Sami Khedira and Andrea Barzagli are not fit yet.
Juve will still rely their offense on young striker Moise Kean for this weekend battle. Miralem Pjanic is set to be the main playmaker in that midfield area for Bianconeri.
Gatusso’s side suddenly found themselves in another injury problems in this later stage of the season. Gianluigi Donnarumma, Lucas Paqueta and Giacomo Bonaventura are out for this weekend.
Andrea Conti’s condition is still in doubt for Saturday, but Franck Kessie could return to action. Suso should also get back into the starting line up after being left out against Udinese.
Head to Head Records:
The last five meetings between both teams have been dominated by Juventus as they won all of them.
Their latest meeting happened on January 17, 2019 in Supercoppa Italian which was won by Bianconeri 1-0.
Having their focus being spit with midweek Champions League date, Juventus still eager for a win. Bianconeri are looking to maintain their recent dominant record over Milan.
Rossoneri are also looking to regain their winning run as they are in need for points to secure that top four place. Juventus are the favorite, but if Rossoneri can shown positive focus the match could be very tight.
Final Score: 1-1
