Juventus vs AC Milan Coppa Italia – Quarter-final Date: Wednesday 25th January, 2017 Kick-off: 19:45 UK Venue: Juventus Stadium, Turin.
Juventus produced an outstanding performance on Sunday afternoon when they outplayed Lazio with 2 – 0 on home court to remain at the top of Serie A standings. Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain scored early goals within the opening 16 minutes of the game to remove all doubts about the potential upset. It was Higuain’s 14th goal since the start of the season in Serie A.
The Old Lady have been absolutely phenomenal on home court as they have an amazing streak of 27 consecutive wins at Juventus Stadium in Turin in Serie A. The team led by Massimilliano Allegri did not concede a single goal in last three home fixtures beating Roma, Bologna and Lazio.
Milan, on the other side, will enter the quarterfinal clash after a disappointing 1 – 2 defeat to Napoli at San Siro. Vincenzo Montella’s men thus ended their positive run and dropped down to 7th position in the standings.
The Rossoneri will be the underdogs against the reigning champions, but Juve will have to be at their best if they want to avoid troubles.
