Milan surprised everyone this evening as they scored three goals at Allianz Stadium, whilst also keeping a clean sheet to secure the win against Juventus. And the scoreline means more than just three points.
In fact, Milan turned things around H2H-wise against the Bianconeri after the 1-3 loss in the reverse fixture, now ahead thanks to the three goals this evening. The Rossoneri also have H2H advantage over Napoli, thanks to the big win at Maradona Stadium.
On the other hand, as MilanLive point out, things could change if Milan – along with at least two other teams – finish on the same amount of points. Then it would be decided by a ‘mini-league’, based on the points collected between those teams.
Even if tonight’s result is a huge boost, this means that Juventus could still finish ahead of Milan on the same amount of points, but then another team has to be involved. Down below is how the clubs involved in the UCL race stand.
Juventus (ahead): 1-3 defeat in the first leg at San Siro. 3-0 in Turin.
