Horrendous nine-game run and Theo on top: All the key stats ahead of Juventus vs. Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan make the trip to Turin to face Juventus with an awful record at the Allianz Stadium to try and overturn.

The phrase ‘six-pointer’ is often overused in football, but it could not be more fitting for tonight’s game given that the two sides are in a heated top four battle and are currently level on points as things stand, with three games left after this.

You can read our pre-match preview here, while below are the best stats ahead of the game…

➤ Juventus have won 15 Serie A meetings against Milan since 2011-12 (D1 L3) – against no other side have they won more in this period (15 wins also against Lazio and Udinese, but with one more game played).

➤ Juventus have won each of their last nine Serie A home matches against Milan; only against Foggia (11) are they enjoying a longer current winning run at home in the competition.

➤ Juventus have conceded in each of their last 10 Serie A games, their worst run without a clean sheet since April 2010 (19) – the last reigning champion to have a longer such run was Inter back in 2011 (12).

➤ Juventus have scored at least two goals in 13 Serie A home matches this season, more than any other side.

➤ Milan have gained at least 69 points in a single Serie A campaign for the first time since 2012-13 (72 – at the end of the season) – in 2012-13, they had 65 points after 35 games.

➤ Milan lost their last away league game and could fail to win in two such matches in a row for the first time since February 2020, in their last two before the lockdown.

➤ This is the first time in the three points for a win era that there is only two points separating the team in second and the side in fifth after 34 games played.

➤ No side have gained more points from trailing situations than Juventus in Serie A this season (17), on the other hand Milan have lost the fewest once taking the lead in the games (five).

➤ Cristiano Ronaldo has scored more than one goal on nine occasions in Serie A this season: the Juventus striker last registered more in a single season in 2014-15 (12), while Erling Haaland (10) is the only to have done so more often this term in the ‘top five’ European Leagues.

➤ Theo Hernández is the first Milan defender to have scored 5+ goals and delivered 5+ assists in a single Serie A campaign since 2004-05 (when started Opta collecting this data). He has been involved in 19 total goals in the competition (11 goals, 8 assists), overtaking Ignazio Abate (18) as the Milan defender with the most goal involvements in this period.
