Juventus vs AC Milan Prediction & Betting tips
The Supercoppa has a long history that went through several countries, so in 1993 was already played in the United States. In addition, this battle was already finished in Libya, China and Qatar and this year Saudi Arabia is next. In this edition, national champion and cup winner Juventus will play against losing cup finalist AC Milan. They played against each other early November, when Juventus won 0-2 thanks to goals from Mandzukic and Ronaldo.
Juventus won this cup seven times in thirty editions and also lost six times the final battle. Because Juventus became champion in the last seven years, it played for this prize every year, the last victory dates back to 2015 when Mandzukic and Dybala took care of the goals. Both goal scorers in that game were new to the club and are now still in the ranks of the Old Lady.
Juve is in the league sovereign first and did not lose a match, besides, it managed to overwinter in the Champions League without any problems. Besides the largest transfer in the history Cristiano Ronaldo, Mandzukic and Dybala are also important pawns. The Croatian, in particular, has already won many top matches, mainly benefiting from situations in which he can take a header duel with a smaller and less strong back. For example, he already scored eight times in sixteen league matches this season and his goals were mainly in the top matches against Lazio, Valencia, Inter, AS Roma, AC Milan and Napoli. This is a striking statistic as he scored only twice against the lesser clubs in twelve games (against Parma and SPAL).
Allegri is expected to compete for his strongest eleven for this match, as he did in his three previous games for this prize. Juan Cuadrado has undergone knee surgery in the winter break and also Barzagli and Cancelo miss this match. Mario Mandzukic has suffered a thigh injury and will be out of service for a few weeks, it is even a doubt whether he will make the first match against Atletico Madrid for the Champions League on February 20th. Benatia also got injured just before the match against Bologna on Saturday and will be missing again on Wednesday.
AC Milan is together with Juventus the club that most often won the Supercoppa Italiana, also the Milanese won him seven times. The last time was two years ago, when it won in Juventus in Qatar after penalty kicks after a 1-1 tie in regular playing time.
The question is whether AC Milan in this match can give as much resistance to the team from Turin as two years ago. The performances in December were not to write home, none of the matches against Bologna, Fiorentina, Torino and Frosinone was won and by a defeat against Olympiakos came the end of the European season for the Milanese. The large number of injured in the defense at the Rossoneri is certainly an important cause of this, but also in the front the players often do not like each other, so in the seven games in December only five times scored. Last Saturday it was difficult at that level, in both regular play time both by Sampdoria and by Milan was not scored and so an extension was needed, in which substitute Cutrone with two goals personally ensured that his team continues.
Also in Milan few players are missing due to injuries, Biglia and Caldara are still injured and as is known Bonaventura is off for the rest of the season. However, new arrival Lucas Paqueta will be available, he started in the base last Saturday.
