Juventus finally experienced their first defeat of this season after going through 14 matches without any single defeat, and won 13 victories including them. The defeat of Manchester United at home in the midweek European Champions League event was the only defeat for the Bianconeri so far, and that could be a blow to Max Allegri’s team to perform better in the following matches.
Furthermore, in the 12th Giornata Serie A this weekend, Juventus themselves will face one of their strongest rivals on the domestic stage, AC Milan. This Derby d’Italia match will take place on the following Monday morning, November 12, 2018 at San Siro Stadium, Milan. Will Juventus’ defeat continue at San Siro? Or the defending champion will be a nightmare for the Rossoneri?
Talking about AC Milan which is directed by Gennaro Gattuso, at the beginning of this season they were actually not too bad, even the Rossoneri managed to penetrate the top 4 of the standings with 21 points. But, in fact in that position, they are only superior on goal difference over Lazio which is right below. Therefore, AC Milan must achieve victory over Juventus in the match, if they do not want to be displaced from 4th place in the standings. It’s not easy, but it can be said that AC Milan is in a pretty good trend ahead of this match.
Whereas Juventus, it seems is still too strong for Milan, they did defeat the defeat of Manchester United at midnight at home, but the fact that the two goals created by the Red Devils in the party began with a set piece situation. Juventus are still seeded to win in the match later, despite taking place at the San Siro.
