Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. Live coverage of the game in the UK is available on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 1 HD.

Overview

Juventus will look to continue their fine form in the Italian Serie A when they visit AC Milan at the San Siro on 9 April in the Italian Serie A. The hosts are coming into this game not having won since February, losing two of their last four matches including a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Atlanta last Sunday, which leaves them 14 points behind third-placed AS Roma.

Pressure is on coach Sinisa Mihajlovic, whose side is currently in sixth place in the Serie A table. They are almost out of the running for a top-three finish and a return to the Uefa Champions League and are trailing city rivals Inter Milan by six points in the race for fifth and a guaranteed berth in the Uefa Europa League.

Milan desperately need a win here as a loss could end Mihajlovic's reign as coach with reports emerging that he could face the sack.

Their opponents Juventus, on the other hand, are on a 21-game undefeated streak in the league and are six points ahead of second-placed Napoli in the race for the Serie A title. What has been impressive about the Old Lady is that despite losing out in the Champions League, they have not let it distract them from going out and winning games in the Serie A.

A win against Milan will put the Bianconeri nine points clear of Napoli in the title race and one step closer towards their fifth consecutive Italian Serie A title. Key striker Paulo Dybala is expected to miss the game through injury.
