Juventus host an in-form AC Milan in the Serie A this week.

This fixture has been plenty of goals in recent meetings, which is why I’m backing over 2.5 goals with value on over 3.5. 

It’s been a slow start for Juventus this season.  A 2-2 draw with Udinese was followed by consecutive defeats to Empoli and Napoli in the league. The Old Lady turned things around in the Champions League with a 3-0 win away to Swedish giants Malmo. Alex Sandro, Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata scored a goal each to lead the team to victory.

Midfielder Aaron Ramsey will miss the clash with an injured thigh. Likewise, midfielder Rodrigo Bentacur suffered an injury over the international break. 

The Rossoneri have made a solid start to the new season. They’re unbeaten in the league, recording a big 4-1 win over Cagliari before defeating Lazio 2-0 at home. 

This run came to an end at the hands of Liverpool in a 3-2 defeat in the Champions League last Wednesday. Back-to-back goals from Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz gave the visitors a 2-1 lead at the half but the Reds countered with two goals after the break to seal the win.

Rebic and Diaz also scored in their 3-0 win at Juventus last season in the most recent meeting between the two clubs.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is unlikely to play after picking up an achilles injury while striker Olivier Giroud is in contention to start after ending his quarantine period. 

Verdict

As poor as Juventus have been, they have a good goalscoring record at home and have plenty of firepower up front. I’m tipping over 2.5 goals with value on over 3.5.
