We are into the FINALS of the Copa Italia, with Juventus taking on Milan. Juventus in particular are looking to secure another double again in this game, and we look at which team would have the edge heading into this encounter.
Juventus come into this encounter with great form behind them not losing in 28 out of their last 29 straight games, will make any team ponder on how are they going to beat the Old Lady who are extremely motivated to secure this double. Juventus showcased last weekend also some great form beating Sampdoria by a score of 5-0. Juventus have their forwards Mandzukic and Dybala in great form with the goals continuing to flow and they are well backed up from the midfield by Khedira and Pogba. The Juventus has been good defensively, conceding goals in only 2 out of the last 6 games, so they will expect to keep Milan out.
Milan come into this encounter with just 1 victory in their last 5 games, showcasing the struggles that they faced and the lack of ambition to even push to try and secure a Europa league spot for next season. They have struggled to score goals this campaign with only Carlos Bacca the stand out forward netting 18 goals for them. Defensively is where Milan have absolutely struggled conceding 8 goals in just their last 4 games. The back line of Romanogli, Alex, Di Sciglio and Abate have been fairly in consistent and when the full backs bomb forward, it leave a lot of holes at the back, which lets often sees them concede goals. I also expect the the veteran Abbiati to come between the sticks, but since he hasn’t playing regularly, you have to question is concentration and performance coming into this game.
Juventus have dominated Milan in their last 7 appearances, beating them on all occasions, and I am backing Juventus to comfortably beat Milan so I back them at the Asian Handicap -1 to win.
