How Juventus could line up against AC Milan

Sports Mole looks at how Juventus could line up in this weekend’s Serie A clash with AC Milan.

Runaway leaders Juventus will be looking to move onto 84 points in Serie A when they welcome fourth-placed AC Milan to Turin on Saturday night.

Juve beat Cagliari Calcio on Tuesday night to make it 26 league victories for the campaign.

Massimiliano Allegri‘s side have a huge 18-point lead over second-placed Napoli at the summit, but they will have more than one eye on next week’s Champions League quarter-final first leg with Ajax.

Juve recorded a 2-0 victory in the reverse match in Milan earlier this season. The Old Lady ran out 3-1 winners in the corresponding clash last term, meanwhile, and have not actually lost a league game against Milan since October 2016.

Here, Sports Mole has taken a look at how the Italian champions could line up this weekend.

Out: Cristiano Ronaldo (thigh), Douglas Costa (hamstring), Paulo Dybala (unknown), Sami Khedira (heart), Juan Cuadrado (knee), Leonardo Spinazzola (knee), Mattia Perin (shoulder)

Cristiano Ronaldo will once again miss out for Juve as the attacker battles back from a thigh problem, but it is understood that the Portuguese will be fit to face Ajax next week, which would be a huge boost for the club.

Paulo Dybala is once again a doubt through a slight injury, but Mario Mandzukic should be available after recovering from the illness that forced him to miss the Cagliari clash.

Douglas Costa is unlikely to be risked as he recovers from a hamstring problem, though, while Juan Cuadrado will miss out again with a long-term knee injury and Sami Khedira is not yet available following a heart procedure.

A lengthy injury list also includes Leonardo Spinazzola and Mattia Perin, meaning that there could once again be a spot on the bench for former Arsenal youngster Stephy Mavididi.

Moise Kean, meanwhile, is expected to lead the line as the teenager looks to add to the four goals that he has managed in his last four Serie A appearances.

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates scoring for Juventus against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on March 12, 2019.
