Lazio's shock 2-1 loss at lowly Lecce means Juventus will go TEN POINTS clear if they win at Milan tonight.
RONALDO WANTS NO HIG-UPS
Gonzalo Higuain comes in for suspended Paulo Dybala alongside Cristiano Ronaldo as Juventus aim to make it eight straight Serie A victories.
But their only three top-flight losses have all come away – and seventh-placed Milan are Serie A's other form team.
RONALDO VS IBRA?
Juventus are hailing the renewed battle of their legend Cristiano Ronaldo and AC Milan's Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
And it's tough to argue when you consider their combined records over the years.
- AC Milan to win – 23/10
- Draw at the San Siro – 23/10
- Juventus to win – 23/20
- Both teams to score – 8/11
- Ronaldo to net – 5/6

Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to make it 30-love in what would have been Wimbledon fortnight.
As leaders and champions Juventus aim to serve up their eighth successive Serie A win, Ronaldo is eyeing his 30th goal of the season.
And that comes as speculation mounts he could soon have a love match by getting engaged to girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez.
This evening's in-form hosts, AC Milan, beat second-placed Lazio 3-0 at the weekend, giving them ten points in four games post-lockdown.
And Ronaldo could yet have a shootout with fellow all-time great Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who seems certain to play some sort of role for Milan.
All in all, it could be the spiciest game in the Italian top-flight since Serie A resumed amid the coronavirus crisis.
Juve are still without Mattia De Sciglio, Alex Sandro, Sami Khedira, Giorgio Chiellini and Merih Demiral.
On top of thiat, centre-back Matthijs de Ligt and Ronaldo's strikepartner Paulo Dybala will be out suspended, surely meaning enhanced roles for Daniele Rugani and Gonzalo Higuain.
Meanwhile, Milan will again be missing injured trio Samu Castillejo, Mateo Musacchio and Leo Duarte.
But most of the focus will be on Ronaldo.
He netted in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Torino on Saturday night taking him to 25 goals in 26 Serie A games this season.
By anyone's standards, that's a deuce of a good record!
