      The main stats for tomorrow night's adversaries

      Tomorrow night at Allianz Stadium, the 168th Serie A match between Juventus and Milan will take place. The Bianconeri lead the overall head-to-head with 64 wins to the Rossoneri's 49, with 54 draws a-piece.

      Milan are the Serie A side that have won the most times against Juve, as well as score the most goals against (214). Il Diavolo's last win in Turin was back in March 201, a 0-1 win thanks to their current coach, Gennaro Gattuso, with Massimiliano Allegri on the Milan bench.

      ROSSONERI NUMBERS

      14 wins, 10 draws and six defeats is the story of Milan's season so far. The Rossoneri are currently in 4th place in Serie A, having scored 44 goals and conceded 28.

      Milan lost their last away match, falling 1-0 to Sampdoria after Gregorie Defrel's goal after one minute. Il Diavolo haven't suffered two consecutive away defeats in Serie A since October 2017 (three), whilst only once in the league have suffered more than one goal away from home this season, against Napoli in a 3-2 defeat.

      Interesting stats

      The Rossoneri have benefitted most from own-goals in the league, with four going their way, just ahead of Juventus, with three.

      Milan (48.2%) and Juventus (45.3%) are two of the top four teams Serie A with the highest percentage of shots on goal.

      Focus on Milan

      Moise Kean has scored three of the last five goals at home for Juventus in Serie A, whilst Krzysztof Piatek has scored four of Milan's last six.

      Excluding Diego Milito in 2008/09, the last player before Krzysztof Piatek to score at least 20 goals in his first Serie A season was Andriy Shevchenko in 1999/2000.

      Piatek is still currently both Milan's top league goalscorer (seven) and Genoa's (13) - only one player in the history of Serie A has ended the season as the top scorer at two different teams: Alessandro Matri in 2010/11 (11 with Cagliari and nine with Juventus).

      In the last round in the championship, against Udinese, Piatek scored his ninth goal in the shirt of Milan on his 12th apperance in all competitions. It's already one more than the goals scored by Gonzalo Higuaín in 22 matches with the Rossoneri.

      After taking an active part in 12 goals in his first 11 appearances this campaign (four goals, eight assists), Suso only had a hand in a single Milan goal in his next 16 (vs Genoa).

      The last seven goals by Patrick Cutrone in Serie A have all come at the San Siro, with the young striker's last away goal coming against Roma at the Olimpico in February 2018.

      In the top five European leagues, only Virgil van Dijk (32) has played more games than Alessio Romagnoli (25) this season without ever having been overtaken with a dribble.
