AC Milan 1-0 Juventus Highlights
[ Italian Serie A 2016-17 ]
65′ 1 – 0 Manuel Locatelli put Milan in lead midway through second half which came totally against the run of play.
Rossoneri has produced some good results in recent weeks which has elevated them to third in the table with 16 points after 8 matches while Juventus lead the table with 21 points winning 7 of the first 8 league games. Milan has been winning but they are doing it the hard way while Juventus are looking strong yet again with their quality squad. Milan has only lost one game at home so far winning 3 of the four matches at San Siro while Juventus has already lost at this stadium this season when Inter recorded a surprise win over Juve earlier in the season.
Team News & Lineups: Its a massive game in Italian football between the two usual heavyweights. The last time these two contested a Coppa Italia final was back in 1990 when Juventus won the cup with a narrow 1-0 win. Milan has not won this competition since 2003 and they will be desperate to finish off their season on a high to upset the odds and beat Juventus who just won their fifth consecutive league title.
AC Milan might without first choice full backs as both Luca Antonelli and Ignazio Abatet are doubtful while Juventus are likely to be without Leonardo Bonucci (Suspended) and Sami Khedira who is injured. This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Saturday night.
Predictions: AC Milan has lost all four recent meeting between the two and this Juventus side is head and shoulders above the rest Italian competition. Chasing their second consecutive league/cup double I expect Juventus to steam role Milan in the final.
