AC Milan vs Juventus preview: Can Ibrahimovic and Co stand in the way of Ronaldo-inspired Juve?


AC Milan stand in the way tonight as table-topping Juventus bid to make it five straight wins since Serie A roared back to life. 

Juve head to the San Siro with a seven-point cushion over second-placed Lazio after sweeping aside Bologna, Lecce, Genoa and Torino in their last four games.

The defending champions netted 13 goals in the process, with talisman Cristiano Ronaldo scoring in each match to take his tally to 25 in 26 top-flight appearances this season.

Milan have also been in good form since the restart and will be keen to settle the score after losing 1-0 to Maurizio Sarri’s men away from home back in November. 

Wins over Lecce and Roma were followed by a shock draw at struggling Spal before Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Co dented any lingering hopes Lazio had of catching Juve at the top of the table. 

Ibrahimovic tucked away a first-half penalty on Saturday as Milan recorded an impressive 3-0 victory at the Stadio Olimpico. 

The Swedish veteran, 38, has scored four times in 10 league appearances since rejoining Milan from LA Galaxy.

And it would be no surprise for him to find the net against Juventus, where he spent two seasons after signing from Ajax for £12million in August 2004.

But Juve’s away form suggests they will be too strong for the hosts.

Sarri’s side have won 10 Serie A games on the road and Ronaldo is unlikely to take his foot off the gas in what has already been a record-breaking campaign for the Portuguese superstar.
