Live ticker AC Milan – Juventus Turin (Serie A 2021/2022, 23rd matchday)


The first leg between these two Italian heavyweights was very close. Morata put the Bianconeri in front very early, Rebic equalized for AC in the 76th minute. The table situation was completely different at the beginning of the season. The Old Lady Juve was eighteenth after the 1-1 draw against Milan, Milan third. Today the teams are only two places apart – AC is third, Juve fifth. A win could put the Rossoneri back within two points of leaders Inter, while three points would also help Juventus to get back in the running for a Champions League spot.


Juventus comes to the top game after the comfortable quarter-final against Genoa in the San Siro. Massimiliano Allegri’s team has been unbeaten in the league for eight games and the coach is sending his regular staff back out onto the pitch to keep things that way. Keeper Wojciech Szczęsny returns between the posts for Mattia Perin, while veteran champions Giorgio Chiellini, Rodrigo Bentancur, Paulo Dybala and ex-Schalke player Weston McKennie are back on the field from the start.


AC Milan could have temporarily overtaken their opponents Inter in first place last matchday, but the Rossoneri then gave up late on against Spezia – a 2-1 defeat in the 96th minute. Now the Pioli squad must even regain second place after Naples temporarily overtook with a win. Compared to the Spezia bankruptcy, Pioli makes four changes. Returning Romagnoli and Tonali, along with Junior Messias and Calabria, will replace Gabbia, Bakayoko, Saelemaekers and Florenzi in the starting XI.
