AC Milan look to extend unbeaten status in Serie A 2021 against Juventus - get fantasy tips and predictions
AC Milan (MIL) will eye the top spot in Serie A when they lock horns with champions Juventus (JUV) at the Allianz Stadium on Monday, September 20. The game will kick off at 12:00 AM IST.
Juventus, still plagued by the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, have yet to win a game in the 2021/22 Serie A season, and face a daunting task against a Rossoneri side that has won all their games so far.
LEP vs BAY Dream11 Prediction
Despite Juventus leading the head-to-head record against AC Milan in Serie A, the visitors will start as the outright favourites to win the fixture.
The Rossoneri will look formidable on paper, having scored seven goals across three games while conceding just once. The Bianconeri, on the flip side, have conceded five in as many games thus putting pressure on Massimiliano Allegri to get the ailing champions' campaign back on track.
JUV vs MIL Dream11 tips for Serie A
Top tip: Best forward
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic out injured, Olivier Giroud is poised to be the top-scoring forward in the fixture. The Frenchman has two goals to his name this season and will be eager to exploit the shaky Juventus defence.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Juventus are in search of their first win in Serie A 2021/22, and a certain Federico Chiesa could help the Bianconeri end their rocky start to the campaign. The 23-year-old has 14 goals and 10 assists in 45 appearances across all competitions, and is well-placed to put on a confident display in the engine room.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Fikayo Tomori is enjoying life at AC Milan, and given his contribution to Milan's emphatic start to the campaign, the defender is backed to shine as the top defender. The former Chelsea defender kept clean sheets against Sampdoria and Lazio and will hope to continue the trend against a struggling Juventus frontline.
When it comes to goalkeepers, Mike Maignan is the first-choice pick. The summer arrival has been sturdy between the sticks for AC Milan in Serie A and will target a top performance against Juventus, as a means of putting to rest the ghosts of the recent European loss against Liverpool.
JUV vs MIL probable playing XI
JUV probable XI (4-4-2): Szczesny; Danilo, De Ligt, Bonucci, Sandro; Cuadrado, Bentancur, Locatelli, Rabiot; Dybala, Morata
MIL probable XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez; Tonali, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Giroud
