The Rossoneri are certainly one of the contenders for the title this season, as they currently at the leading place in the standings, having one point more than their closest rival Inter.
In their latest match against newcomer Benevento, they managed to walk away with a 0:2 away victory, proving that they are more than capable to be dangerous even with a player less. They took the lead first from the penalty converted by Kessie in the 15th minute and despite numerical disadvantage since the 33rd, they added another one to the scoreboard at the beginning of the second part via Leao, while successfully keeping their sheet clean.
The hosts did miss a penalty back in 61st, a situation that could make things a bit more interesting, but overly looking, a good appearance from visitors from Milan, who did just what was needed.
The hosts continue missing central defender Gabbia (6/0), defensive midfielder Bennacer (9/0), offensive Saelemaekers (13/2), striker Ibrahimovic (6/10) due to injuries. Defensive midfielder Tonali (12/0) is suspended.
Juventus did their job in the last match against Udinese at home, as they recorded a victory with a convincing 4:1 result.
They secured their three points after the seventy minutes of the match when they had a 3:0 advantage (twice via Ronaldo and one goal from Chiesa), and even though the guests managed to be effective once in the 90th minute, the home side had the last word in this one, as they scored another one in the third minute of added time via Dybala and took this victory without any major difficulties.
Juventus, by their standards, is appearing poorly this season, as they are currently at 5th place in rankings, with the leading place simply too far from their reach at this moment and a victory is close to a must thing here.
Striker Morata (11/4) is out being injured, while left midfielder Alex Sandro (7/0) remains out due to Covid-19. Right full-back Cuadrado is back from the suspension.
Not gaining much with a passive approach
When football giants like this collide, high expectations are quite reasonable. Both sides require three points, and with their comfort zone being in the open match, goals from each of them are seeming quite realistic.
Just a slight push is needed to make this clash as interesting as possible, and with the way these two play, we shouldn’t wait long for that to occur since Juventus really can’t afford to stay at the back at any moment.
