Competition: Serie A Date: Saturday 22nd October 2016 Venue: San Siro Kick-Off: 19:45 BST
AC Milan forward Carlos Bacca will return to the starting eleven this weekend, after coming on as a substitute in the 3-1 win away to Chievo last Sunday.
On the injury front, the Rossoneri are still without Riccardo Montolivo (ligament damage), Cristian Zapata (ankle) and Luca Antonelli (calf).
As for Juventus, Mario Mandzukic remains a doubt for the visitors due to a muscle strain and defender Giorgio Chiellini is also ruled out of action after missing midweek’s 1-0 win away to Lyon with a thigh injury.
Gonzalo Higuain is set to start at the heart of Bianconeri’s attack alongside fellow Argentine Paulo Dybala who has scored three goals in his last two league outings.
Two of Italy’s most decorated clubs lock horns in the Serie A this weekend, as AC Milan play host to Juventus at the San Siro on Saturday evening.
Milan head into the clash in impressive form, winning four and drawing just once in their last five league matches, including a goal mouthed 4-3 win at home to Sassuolo a fortnight ago.
Currently, it leaves the Rossoneri third in the league table trailing five points behind their weekend rivals who sit top of the standings.
Head coach Vincenzo Montella knows the importance of this encounter and what it means to the fans, and he’ll be hoping his Milan outfit can continue their good form against the defending champions.
Meanwhile, Juventus make the trip east to Milan following a 1-0 win on their travels to French side Lyon in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The Bianconeri side left it late through a Juan Cuadrado strike which moved them top of Group H, having been reduced to ten men for most of the second half.
Massimiliano Allegri will be pleased with the resilience shown from his players, and they’ll be searching for their fifth league win in a row, when they battle it out with their biggest rivals on Saturday.
Last season, Juventus did the double over their weekend opponents and they’ll be tipped favourites for victory, winning the last seven league meetings against Milan.
