Rebic will be Milan’s secret weapon tomorrow – his impressive stats vs. Juve

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will take on Juventus in the 23rd round of Serie A tomorrow evening and they will be looking to bounce back from the recent defeat. By the looks of it, they will have a ‘secret weapon’ on the bench. 

The player in question is Ante Rebic, who is expected to start on the bench as Rafael Leao has had a fantastic start to 2022. For this game, however, the Croatian international might come out on top.

In fact, Milan’s No.12 has scored in each of his last three league games against Juventus, most recently securing a 1-1 draw at Allianz Stadium. Furthermore, the Turin clubs are the favourite victims of his career (five goals against Torino, four against Juve).

These are very impressive numbers and only one player has managed to score in more consecutive games against Juventus, namely Mauro Icardi. He scored in five consecutive games between 2013 and 2015.

With all this in mind, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Rebic come off the bench in the second half tomorrow.

  1. this is not “secret weapon time” put up or shut up time, play him in the center rather than Diaz, he is a tough son of a bitch and that is what it is going to take to beat Juve…..

  2. “coming off the bench” I have news for Pioli, the scudetta is won or lost for sure in the next two games, 6 points up for grabs. Rebic can ride the bench for the rest of the season if we do not win both of these games.

  3. Use him as a CF instead of Zlatan or Giroud. He made a killer trio with Leao and Diaz at the start of the season. And there’s also Theo.

  4. I certainly think Giroud should start this match ..
    He has great technical ability in front of goal ,and on current form would cause a threat to any team ,yes of course he has to have the correct service ..
    The best is come from him ,and this current team can challenge for honours this season .

    1. Giroud is a great spearhead. But he is almost useless when there’s no one to deliver the ball.
      Probably you’re right. With Leao’s passes Giroud could do much more.
