Milan (MIL) host Juventus (JUV) in matchday 23 of the Serie A 2021-22 season at San Siro in the early hours of Monday, January 24. The match will kick off at 1:15 AM IST.
MIL vs JUV Dream11 prediction
Milan are doing all they can to put pressure on league leaders Inter, but a slump in form midway through the season has pushed them five points below their inter-city rivals. The Rossoneri have won three of their last five league games but are coming on the back of a surprising 2-1 home defeat to Spezia.
Juventus, on the other hand, have done pretty well in recent weeks, winning four of their last matches while drawing once. While the recent record pretty much favours Juventus, we expect this game to either end in a draw or Milan coming out with three points.
MIL vs JUV Dream11 team tips for Serie A 2021-22
Top tip: Best striker
Although there are plenty of options to choose from, our recommendation would be JUV’s Paulo Dybala. The Argentina forward has scored three goals in his last four games across all competitions and remains the most-picked player for this position. With 11 goals to his name already, he is likely to add more to his tally, making him a top pick for this clash.
Top tip: Best midfielder
With MIL’s Franck Kessie out, JUV’s Manuel Locatelli becomes an automatic pick as the midfielder. Named in the Dream Team in three of his last four outings, Locatelli has accrued 549 fantasy points this Serie A season after scoring five goals and providing two assists.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
MIL’s Theo Hernandez is an outright pick for a defender. The 24-year-old full-back has scored four goals coupled with five assists in 18 Serie A matches, resulting in a tally of 369 fantasy points. Although Juan Cuadrado of JUV can also be considered, the form Hernandez is in makes him a must-have player for this match.
For the goalkeeper's slot, JUV’s Wojciech Szczesny should be picked ahead of his competitor Mike Maignan. The former Arsenal stopper has accumulated 547 fantasy points this season and is selected by 75.4 per cent of fantasy users for this contest.
