MN: Milan now unlikely to play Juventus in preseason – alternative fixture being lined up

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking at the possibility of setting up another preseason friendly for this Saturday as the one they had planned seems difficult.

Milan kicked off their 2021 summer preseason campaign with a 6-0 win over Pro Sesto on Saturday, with Ismael Bennacer, Rafael Leao, Samu Castillejo, an own-goal and a Milos Kerkez brace proving too much for the Serie C side.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, in all likelihood the friendly match on July 24 between Milan and Juventus will no longer be played as there are some difficulties in organising the match.

The Rossoneri are instead trying to plan another friendly against Modena for that day, to ensure that they get another competitive test in their legs after Saturday’s triumph at Milanello. Also on the agenda are games against OGC Nice in France, Valencia in Spain and a game against Real Madrid in Austria.
