    Serie A Serie A: Rd.3 Ac Milan v Juventus

    MATCH PREVIEW
    Serie A Week 3 - 20 Sep 2014 (19.45 UK)
    Milan - Juventus
    Stadio Giuseppe Meazza
    Juventus
    Milan

    Milan and Juventus head into a top-of-the-table clash both looking to maintain 100 per cent starts to the Serie A season.

    Filippo Inzaghi's boyish exuberance will likely never be curbed, and he must have thought that he was in a candy shop last Sunday as the former goal poacher witnessed his Rossoneri score five away from home.

    Yet for all their hard work going forward, the team were leaking goals at the other end - even so, post-match to Sky Sport Italia, Pippo's pride shone through.

    I saw the moves that we tried out in training used to score great goals, but I also saw that we conceded on every chance that we allowed. It was a very open game, but I think there can be few doubts that Milan deserved to win.

    Inzaghi did however acknowledge the frailties of a team who have almost conceded as many goals as they have scored in their two opening games. With this in mind, the visit of La Vecchia Signora could prove to be a fist-fight too far as not only has The Old Lady yet to concede this term, she also packs quite a punch.

    The Bianconeri are on a nine match winning streak stretching back to their last League defeat against Napoli in March earlier this year. A slender opening day win over Chievo has since been consolidated by 2-0 victories over Udinese and Malmo, thanks in part to three goals from a rejuvenated Carlos Tevez.

    Massimiliano Allegri's decision to start the Argentine last weekend was thought to be a risky ploy but it proved dividends and perhaps more importantly from the club's perspective, it allowed them a winning start in the Champions League. Too many draws cost Juve qualification from their group last season, so the Coach will be encouraged by their winning start.

    Milan are without the injured Riccardo Montolivo, Diego Lopez, Alex and Riccardo Saponara.

    Giorgio Chiellini returns from suspension whilst Luca Marrone and Andrea Pirlo are injured. Arturo Vidal also remains a doubt for the Bianconeri.

    Keep an eye on: Fernando Torres (Milan) - The former Liverpool and Chelsea striker resumed training this week along with Stephen El Shaarawy as they both tried to shake off ankle injuries. The Spaniard is yet to debut for Milan following his two-year loan move and is looking for redemption - and to prove he still knows his route to goal.

    Form Guide: Milan ( - - -W W) Juventus ( - - -W W)

    Last season: Milan 0-2 Juventus

    Stat fact: Milan have won their last six consecutive Serie A games at San Siro but Juventus have kept a clean sheet in eight of their last nine away games in the League.

    Milan (probable): Abiati; Abate, Rami, Zapata, De Sciglio; Poli, De Jong, Muntari; Honda, Menez, Bonaventura

    Suspended: Bonera

    Juventus (probable): Buffon; Caceres, Bonucci, Chiellini; Lichtsteiner, Pogba, Marchisio, Pereyra; Evra, Llorente, Tevez

    Suspended: None

    i am looking forward to this game to see how much we really have progressed. Even under Allegri, Juve are still a good side. Menez is playing well, look froward to SES again if fit, Bonaventura looks good, defence needs to get sorted

    what increasingly annoys me is Milan's failure to see the importance of a creative midfield! Madrid have there two deepest mids being Kroos and Modric!

    We play DeJong and Muntari with Poli!

    well not really surprising. Juve deserved to win they have been the better side and controlling the game from minute 1.

    altho we played home, and juve played cl football this week i never had the feeling where going to get any point in this game.

    Allegri is not even an argument, this juve is simply a better side.

    We offer nothing in midfield. Muntari, DeJong and Poli! Where's the spark!

    First allegri's boring midfield and now Inzaghi seems to be the same!

    People were getting far too carried away with Inzaghi's success! Let's not forget we were lucky in two games with Lopez's penalty save and Menez saved us last week
