Unbeaten stretch and a lack of draws: All the key stats ahead of Milan vs. Juventus

By Oliver Fisher -

Italian football’s two most decorated clubs face off against each other at San Siro tonight as AC Milan host Juventus, in what is a huge game for both sides.

Stefano Pioli’s men lost their game against Spezia on Monday in controversial circumstances as Marco Serra was the centre of a storm for his decision not to let a late Junior Messias goal stand, and with Inter having won last night the pressure is on to respond well. You can read our pre-match preview here, while below are the best stats…

➤ Milan are the side that Juventus have lost (51) and drawn (55) the most Serie A matches against – in the 173 total meetings between these two sides in the competition, the Bianconeri have recorded 67 wins.

➤ Milan have gone unbeaten in three of their last four Serie A meetings with Juventus (W2 D1), as many as in the previous 17 such games in the competition (W2 D1 L14).

➤ After the 1-1 draw last September, Milan and Juventus could draw both meetings in a single Serie A campaign for the first time since the 1991/92 campaign. The last time Milan avoided defeat in both league meetings with Juve in a single season was back in 2009/10.

➤ Milan and Juventus haven’t drawn any of their last nine Serie A meetings at the Meazza: six wins for the Bianconeri and three for the Rossoneri – the last such draw was back in February 2021 (1-1 with goals from Nocerino and Matri), with Allegri on the AC Milan bench and Conte with Juventus.

➤ After the 1-2 defeat against Spezia, Milan could lose consecutive Serie A home matches for the first time since September 2019, in what were Marco Giampaolo’s last two league games at the Meazza as AC Milan manager.

Ante Rebic of AC Milan

➤ Juventus are unbeaten in their last eight league matches, thanks to six wins and two draws; their longest run in the competition since December 2020 (12).

➤ Massimiliano Allegri has won 11 times and drawn his other four meetings with Stefano Pioli as a manager in Serie A: he is the coach with the most Serie A matches against another manager without losing in the three points for a win era (15).

➤ Milan’s Ante Rebic has scored in his last three Serie A meetings against Juventus: in the three points for a win era (since 94/95), only Mauro Icardi has found the net in more successive league matches against Juventus (five in a row between 2013 and 2015).

➤ Zlatan Ibrahimovic (23 goals in 70 Serie A appearances for Juventus between 2004 and 2006) has scored two league goals against the Bianconeri, both at the Meazza (July 2020 and October 2010). The Swede could become the oldest player to find the net against Juventus in the Italian top-flight (40 years and 112 days on Sunday), overtaking Silvio Piola (39 years and 174 days in 1953).

➤ Paulo Dybala has been directly involved in 12 Serie A goals against Milan (seven goals, five assists), only against Udinese does he have more combined goals and assists (17) – however, the Argentinian has never scored at the Meazza against the Rossoneri in four previous league games for Juventus.
