JUV vs MIL Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injuries and Suspensions
Juventus vs AC Milan Team News:
Injured – Massimiliano Allegri is blessed with a talented squad at his disposal and a big one too. There are players who don’t get enough minutes on the pitch due to the superiority of first and preferred options. However, at the moment, Juve are enduring a very big injury list, giving fringe players like Emre Can a good chance to show his worth.
The manager has already confirmed that Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic will not play any part in this match due to the injury. So the shuffle at the front is expected.
Andrea Barzagli, Daniele Rugani, Medhi Benatia, Jao Cancelo and Juan Cuadrado all have been ruled out of this match.
Suspended – None.
Questionable – None.
Note: With Madzukic out, Douglas Costa is in contention to start on the wing, while Paulo Dybala should partner Cristiano Ronaldo in the forward positions.
Federico Bernardeschi scored the first goal at the weekend for Juve but may find himself on the bench against a more formidable opponent.
Key Players – C. Ronaldo, Dybala
Injured – Gattuso will be without centre-back Mattia Caldara for the clash, while the options in the midfield are limited as both Giacomo Bonaventura and Lucas Biglia have been ruled out with injuries.
Suspended – Milan’s problems have intensified by Suso’s unavailability. The former Liverpool playmaker is suspended for the clash.
Questionable – None.
Note: Milan have been in the headlines of late due to the wrong reasons. An unhappy player is a bad taste for any manager and if he is your best player then the problems have no solutions. There are reports in the media that Milan’s on-loan striker Gonzalo Higuain is forcing a move away from San Siro for Chelsea. But despite that, he is expected to play against his parent club Juventus in this match.
Lucas Paquetá made his debut at the weekend and played well. The 21-year-old Brazilian is expected to play as Suso is suspended.
Key Players – Higuain, Cutrone
JUV vs MIL Dream11 Playing 11 – (Probable) –
Juventus– Szczesny (GK), De Sciglio, Bonucci, Chiellini, Sandro; Bentancur, Pjanic, Matuidi; Dybala, Ronaldo, Costa
AC Milan– Donnarumma (GK), Calabria, Zapata, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Calhanoglu, Kessie, Bakayoko, Paqueta; Higuain, Cutrone
JUV vs MIL Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Juventus have an upper hand in the most recent fixtures over AC Milan, winning all the last six meetings. The Old Lady last lost to Milan in this same fixture back in 2016 on penalties.
Also, the Rossoneri have won just twice in the last 17 games against Juve heading into this match, including the 2016 Supercoppa Italiana, with the other one coming in Serie A, in October 2016 at San Siro.
And it’s not looking good for Milan in this match as Juventus have improved significantly over the last couple of years, and the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo has made them even more formidable for the Italian teams.
But this is a one-off game where anything can happen.
Still, a win for Juventus is all we can see in this match.
