JUV vs MIL Dream11: AC Milan make a trip to Turin as they aim to put their season back on track, while Juventus will look to take the summit back from Inter Milan who usurped the reigning Serie A champions from the top after beating Verona 2-1 on Saturday.
The task to get the better of their esteemed rival is bigger for Rossoneri, who not only come into this match lying 11th on the points table, but the visitors haven’t tasted an away win against Juventus in the last eight years.
Stefano Pioli is coming under some pressure after Milan’s less than convincing start to his managerial career as Milan boss, ever since he replaced Marco Giampolo, where his team suffered two defeats in the first four league games. Milan suffered a 1-2 home defeat against Lazio last weekend. The gap between them and the top-four now stands at 8 points.
Juventus are undefeated still in Serie A, having won nine times in the first 11 league games. They are 2nd on the points table but will be moving to the top with a win over Milan at Juventus Stadium.
Visitors: AC Milan
Match Timing: Monday, November 11, @ 01: 15 AM
Venue: Juventus Stadium
