20 Oct Serie A Preview: Rossoneri hoping to continue good run against Juventus
A high-profile encounter between two of the 2016-2017 Serie A season’s top three teams, AC Milan and Juventus FC, is scheduled at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in San Siro on Saturday. Milan is now at the third place in the overall standings after overtaking Chievo with a score 3-1 on Sunday.
Milan began their season by losing two of their first three games before going on a five-game unbeaten run, which is a good sign that the players are connecting well with new head coach Vincenzo Montella. “Saturday night’s match will be important to stay in the top positions, and if we win against Juve they will only be two points ahead of us,” said the red and black defender Mattia De Sciglio.
“This clash has always meant a lot to us in the past, and I think it will also mean a lot in the future. We have the chance to take our revenge for the Coppa Italia final and we will face the team who are currently top of the table”. Montella showed a calm attitude towards the upcoming battle with Juventus and told Milan TV : “We will prepare for this match with a light spirit and we will be ready Saturday without wasting energy during the week”.
“We have to play our game. Every team is different but surely we must play intensively, with the right attitude. This is how today’s football works. Having better cheap valtrex buy players is not enough to win a game, you need also a great temperament. Against Juve we must raise our game, because they are ahead of us from a technical point of view. We mustn’t be too aggressive and play a patient game”.
Meanwhile, defending champions Juventus had won its last four matches after experiencing their first defeat of the season against Inter Milan last month. Juve is still at the top spot of the Italian top flight table, five points clear of second and third placers AS Roma and AC Milan. The Old Lady is just coming off a tough 1-0 win over Lyon in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
After the match, the coach of Juventus, Massimiliano Allegri looked ahead to Saturday’s visit to San Siro to take on AC Milan. “We’ll need to make our play nice and quick against Milan, which is something we failed to do in the first half tonight. The Rossoneri are a very good, young side and if we don’t match them for running then it’ll be a tough night.”The game starts at 20:45 on Saturday.
