This Sunday, May 9, we’ll witness a title match, which already mathematically belongs to Inter Milan. Juventus will host Milan at the Juventus Stadium. You can also catch the broadcast on ESPN at 14: 45 E.T.
What makes this match interesting is that if either team loses and Napoli, the closest pursuers, gets a win, it will relegate the loser to the last spot available in the UEFA Europa League.
Five key facts to review from the Juventus vs. Milan history:
1. In the last five Serie A home games against Milan, Juventus has not dropped three points in any of their last five matches.
2. Milan’s last away game was against Lazio, where they lost 3 goals to nil, while Juventus’ previous home game was against Parma, and they won 3 goals to 1.
3. The Vecchia Signora are in third place with 69 points, and a goal differential of +36, while the Rossoneri have the same amount of points but have a goal differential of +21.
4. The last meeting between the two teams in Serie A was this season on matchday 16, where Juventus took the away victory with a score of 1-3.
5. Milan’s last league win over Juventus was in the 2019/20 season on matchday 31, with a score of 4 goals to 2, at the San Siro stadium.
Let’s take a look at how Andrea Pirlo’s men are coming into this match:
After eleven years, Vecchia Signora is fighting until the last day for a place that gives a ticket to the most important competition on the continent, the UEFA Champions League. Thanks to a brace in the previous ten minutes of the match by Cristiano Ronaldo, they could turn it around and get the three points against Udinese to return to position themselves in third place in Serie A.
If the Turin-based team wants to keep superstar CR7 in its ranks, it must secure its place in the UEFA Champions League and put together a squad that will allow it to fight for all the tournaments it contests. If some of these two points are not met, we will likely see one of the best players in the history of world soccer change teams next summer.

Can Milan break their away losing streak against Juventus?
Rossoneri will try to end the bad streak of not being able to take points away from home against the team that lives in the city of Turin. Still, when reviewing the last few league performances, they have had a somewhat irregular performance, so they will have to show their best version of play to finally take a point at the Juventus Stadium, where they arrive after having beaten Benevento. The latter are second-last in the table in the standings.
Let’s review Milan’s previous day’s win over Benevento: (Video courtesy of: SERIEA)
Juventus: 48.0% (-140) – Goals: 1.70
Milan: 28.0% (+334) – Goals: 0.99
Draw: 24.0% (+279)
