Read a preview and watch a live stream of Milan vs Juventus.
Where: San Siro, Milan.
When: Sunday March 2, 19:45 GMT
Despite the significant gap in the table between these two, AC Milan will be confident after recent performances of upsetting defending champions Juventus when they arrive at San Siro on Sunday night.
Mario Balotelli is expected to be absent as he recovers from a shoulder injury he sustained last weekend, which will give Giampaolo Pazzini another chance in the starting line-up.
However, with confidence growing after a string of positive performances, coach Clarence Seedorf will be expecting an energetic display from his players with the Rossoneri taking the game to the visitors.
Although there is still a 31-point gap between these two giants of Italian football, Milan are undoubtedly beginning a new cycle under the Dutchman, who has paid tribute to rival Antonio Conte this week.
The Juve boss has seemingly put any off-the-pitch distractions behind him and is back focused on the tasks in hand, and after their winning trip to Turkey in mid-week they will want to take full advantage of Roma slipping up on Saturday night to widen the gap at the top of the table.
Arturo Vidal is suspended which should mean Claudio Marchisio is promoted to the starting XI, while Kwadwo Asamoah is expected to feature after recovering from a thigh injury.
Conte will likely go back to a striking pair of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente, but Giorgio Chiellini may only be fit enough for the bench.
For the hosts, Adil Rami and Adel Taarabt have undoubtedly emerged as key players over the course of the last month, and both will need to influence proceedings if Milan are to secure all three points.
This game ended 1-0 to Milan last season, and you can expect a similarly close encounter but with plenty of action and entertainment over the course of the 90 minutes.
Milan (probable): Ameila; Emanuelson, Rami, Mexes, De Sciglio; Montolivo, De Jong, Kaka, Taarabt, Honda; Pazzini
Juventus (probable): Buffon; Ogbonna, Bonucci, Barzagli; Asamoah, Marchisio, Pogba, Lichtsteiner, Pirlo; Llorente, Tevez
