    On Sunday night we have a clash between the two most decorated clubs in Italian football as Juventus host AC Milan at the Allianz Stadium.

    Juventus have a total of 67 trophies to their name and top the list of clubs in Serie A, while AC Milan are second in the list with 48 trophies both in Italy and European football.

    This is always a massive game and Juventus will be hoping to extend their lead at the top of the table with a win. AC Milan start the weekend down in 12th place and they need a victory just to move into the top half of Serie A.

    Juventus defeated Lokomotiv Moscow away from home on Wednesday night to secure their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League. That win was their third in a row in all competitions and Juventus remain undefeated this season. Juventus have won 9 and drawn 2 of their 11 Serie A matches this season and both draws have come away from home.

    Trends show Juventus are unbeaten in their last 24 home Serie A games and have won each of their last 5 on home soil. the wins have come against Napoli, Hellas Verona, SPAL, Bologna and Genoa. However, 4 of those 5 wins have been by just a single goal and Juventus have kept just one clean sheet at home in the league this season.

    In fact, both teams have scored in 8 of their last 9 home Serie A games.

    AC Milan come into this match having tasted defeat at home against Lazio last weekend. Despite having scored an equalizer in the 28th minute, AC Milan failed to go on and win the game and conceded the decisive goal to Lazio with just 7 minutes remaining. That defeat means AC Milan have won only one of their last 4 matches, all of which have been in Serie A.

    Trends show AC Milan have won 2 and lost 3 of their five away matches this season. The wins have come against Hellas Verona and Genoa while they have tasted defeat at Udinese, Torino and Roma. Both teams have scored in 6 of AC Milan's 7 most recent Serie A games and they have kept just two clean sheets in their last 14 away league games.

    Team news and Juventus are still without defender Giorgio Chiellini who is not expected back until February. Marko Pjaca, Matia Perin and Matthijs de Ligt are all doubts.

    AC Milan have doubts over the fitness of Suso and Samuel Castillejo but every other player should be available for this match.

    Juventus are the clear favourites to win this game, especially as they are playing at home. Juventus have won each of the last 5 meetings between the teams, three of which have seen both teams score. AC Milan may get on the score sheet again in this game but expect to see Juventus take maximum points.
