It's another huge night of football at the San Siro as AC Milan host Juventus in the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final clash.
The legendary stadium, which is set to be scrapped for a new modern arena in 2023, played host to Napoli’s 1-0 win over Inter Milan on Wednesday.
And fans have converged on the Giuseppe Meazza for a second straight night as Milan look to beat Serie A champions for the first time in ten games.
Milan have triumphed over Juventus just TWICE in their last TWENTY meetings.
And the odds are stacked against them yet again as a 22-point gap in the table suggests another win for the Bianconeri.
Maurizio Sarri’s men are looking far from their best, losing two of their last three games to put Inter top of Serie A on goal difference.
But Cristiano Ronaldo has scored seven goals in his last five outings, as well as in each of Juventus’ last ten league fixtures.
And the Portuguese superstar is sure to be keen on continuing his fine run against a Milan side who look to have turned a corner in their season.
After suffering a 5-0 defeat to Atlanta in their final game of 2019, Milan have lost just one of their previous eight in all competitions.
The return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic has played a huge role in reviving morale at the club.
But Milan suffered a 4-2 derby defeat to Inter at the weekend.
And it remains to be seen if Ibra can inspire his teammates to glory against Ronaldo and co.
Predicted AC Milan XI: Donnarumma; Conti, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Castillejo, Kessi, Bennacer, Rebic; Calhanoglu; Ibrahimovic
Predicted Juventus XI: Szczesny; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Bonucci, Sandro; Bentancur, Ramsey, Rabiot; Dybala; Higuain, Ronaldo
