    The Bianconeri look to make it three Serie A wins in a week as they travel to the San Siro

    After a loss to Lazio a fortnight ago, the Bianconeri have roared back with three straight wins over Sporting CP, Udinese and SPAL scoring 12 goals in the process. They'll look to continue their hot form against AC Milan as Juventus makes their first trip to the San Siro this season.

    This is the 83rd match between Juventus and Milan at the San Siro with Milan leading the all-time series 28-33-21. Here's everything to know for Saturday's match which kicks off at 18.00 CEST: 

    BOMBING BIANCONERI

    With 31 goals through the first ten matches, the Bianconeri offense is rolling like they haven't seen in over 60 years. The win on Wednesday night kept Juve in third place in the Serie A table three points behind Napoli and a point behind Inter. 

    While the offense has been doing well, Massimiliano Allegri mentioned in his pre-match press conference that the Juve balance from attack to defense will have to improve especially in big games like the one ahead on Saturday night where offensive outbursts are few and far between. 

    Prior to a 1-0 win by Milan at the San Siro last year, Juve had won the previous three Serie A battles between the sides at the Giuseppe Meazza. 

    LOOKING TO RIGHT THE SHIP

    After a summer that saw a huge splash made by AC Milan in the transfer market, it's been an up-and-down start to the Serie A campaign. After four wins from the first five matches, Vincenzo Montella's side lost three straight, going four without a win in Serie A.

    They bounced back on Wednesday night winning 4-1 away to Chievo Verona with four different players finding the scoresheet for the Rossonieri, a result they'll hope to build on this weekend.

    Milan currently sit eighth in the table on 16 points with a 5-1-4 record. Suso and Nikola Kalinic have combined to score 7 of the 16 goals by Milan this season.
