Our prediction for this Serie A match:
There will be fireworks when Milan and Juventus face each other at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in the Serie A derby. The Rossoneri recorded a 2-0 win over Benevento at the weekend, with the team retaining their ten-point advantage over Juve, and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the midweek showdown. Even though talented midfielder Sandro Tonali is banned, we predict that the league leaders are going to grab something from the match.
The likes of Bennacer, Gabbia, Ibrahimovic, and Saelemakers remain in the recovery room for the hosts. The Bianconeri, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Udinese, and they managed to get one in style. Since Andre Pirlo’s troops are likely to go for a win in the Serie A derby as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Juan Cuadrado returns from suspension for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Sandro Tonali):
After starting his youth career at Piacenza back in 2009, Sandro Tonali moved to Brescia three years later. The 181-cm-tall defender has been playing for le Rondinelle ever since and it has to be noted that he made his debut with the Stadio Mario Rigamonti outfit on August 26, 2017 in a 2-1 defeat to Avellino.
Sandro Tonali scored his first ever league goal for Brescia in a 4-2 loss to Salernitana on April 28, 2018. The talented midfielder, who was born in Lodi on May 8, 2000, represents Italy U21 team in international matches.
He made his debut with the Italy U21 national team on June 19, 2019 in a 1-0 defeat to Poland. His main position is defensive midfielder, but he is used as a central midfielder as well. Sandro’s preferred foot is right and his contract with Brescia should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Juventus):
Juventus are considered one of the greatest European football clubs. The Bianconeri (The White and Blacks) have won two Champions League trophies (1985, 1996) and they did well to clinch three UEFA Cup titles (1977, 1990, 1993). The Italian giants have won 32 Serie A trophies and it is well known that a number of star players were part of Juve in the past.
The likes of Alessandro Del Piero, Zinedine Zidane, Michel Platini, Lilian Thuram, Filippo Inzaghi, Pavel Nedved and David Trezeguet all played for Juventus, whilst legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has yet to retire. Juve were stripped two domestic trophies during the “Calciopoli” scandal, but despite being relegated to Serie B, the club quickly brought glory days back to Turin. The Bianconeri used to play their home games at Stadio delle Alpi, but nowadays they welcome their rivals at Juventus Stadium.
The capacity of the stadium is 41,475. La Vechhia Signora (The Old Lady) is yet another nickname of the club. Juve’s biggest rivals are Torino and the two local rivals take on each other in the Turin derby.
