The Serie A excitement is back, and the highlight of the ninth round is the anticipated clash between Milan and Juventus.
The Bianconeri have the opportunity to gain ground on the league leaders, the Rossoneri, in a match that promises intense competition. The Milan vs. Juventus fixture is scheduled tonight, October 22, with kickoff at 20:45.
For the San Siro showdown, Massimiliano Allegri is expected to stick with his tried-and-true 3-5-2 formation. Between the posts, Wojciech Szczęsny will take his position. With Danilo unavailable, the defensive line is likely to feature Gleison Bremer at the center, flanked by Federico Gatti and Daniele Rugani.
In the midfield, the pivotal role of orchestrator will be entrusted to Manuel Locatelli. Unfortunately, Nicolò Fagioli will be absent due to suspension related to a betting incident. Completing the midfield setup will be Adrien Rabiot and Weston McKennie.
McKennie is expected to return to the central midfield role after featuring in various games as a wide player. On the flanks, it is anticipated that Timothy Weah and Filip Kostic will assume their positions.
The attacking duo is set to feature Dusan Vlahovic and Arek Milik. Federico Chiesa, who has recovered and received a call-up from Allegri, is likely to start on the bench but could make a significant impact coming on as a substitute.
Juventus probable XI (3-5-2): Szczesny; Gatti, Bremer, Rugani; Weah, McKennie, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Milik, Kean.
