Milan come into this game with a 2-0 victory in their Serie A fixture at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris against Sampdoria last Sunday.

The visitors took the lead in the first-half after Adel Taarabt found the back of the net in the 12<sup>th minute after the Moroccan reacted first after his initial header was parried by Angelo da Costa Junior.

Adil Rami doubled the Rossoneri's lead after half-time scoring a header from the corner in the 58<sup>th minute.

The victory helped Clarence Seedorf's side go ninth in the league table with 35 points having played 25 matches, trailing fourth-placed Fiorentina by 10 points.

Meanwhile, Juventus are on a seven-match unbeaten run and progressed to the last-16 of the Europa League after securing a 2-0 win over Trabzonspor at the Huseyin Avni Aker Stadium in the previous round last Thursday.

Arturo Vidal and Dani Osvaldo scored the goals in the first-half for Antonio Conte's side to complete a 4-0 aggregate win in the second round.

In their last league fixture, the Bianconeri secured a narrow victory in the Turin Derby as Carlos Tevez's solitary goal in the 30<sup>th minute helped them win 1-0 against Torino at the Juventus Stadium.

The Italian champions sit comfortably on top of the league table having amassed 66 points from 25 matches, eight points clear of second-placed AS Roma.

Seedorf will be hoping that his side can send a strong message with a win against Juventus at home as the 37-year-old attempts to guide his side further up the Serie A table.

What They Say

Clarence Seedorf (AC Milan manager): "Credit to Juventus who have grown well since winning the first title. Victories help with morale and self-esteem and from my part I can only say all credit to them. I think Conte has given Italian football something new and in my opinion very positive. This is the first Milan-Juventus match that I'll be on the bench for and that's a real honour. My experience tells me that even when the best players in the world are unavailable, the teams can still do well."

Fernando Llorente (Juventus striker): "We do not fear anybody and are going to San Siro in order to win, even if Milan are improving under Clarence Seedorf. We know how important this game is, as it's a key moment for the Scudetto. It's true Milan are a good team, but we have no concerns. The objective is to win the title and for that winning at San Siro is fundamental. We are the team to beat and it won't be easy for anyone."
