Milan have fallen well behind Juventus in the last few seasons, having to watch the Old Lady of Turin romp to the title time and again. If Milan are to be title contenders, under Filippo Inzaghi, this season, there is no better time and match to prove that than against the reigning Serie A champions.
"Tomorrow is a big match and I am happy for my team," said Inzaghi on Friday. "We have six points and we will play the match with nothing to lose. I have repeated this to my team.
"We'll be playing in a full San Siro and that could help us get a result and have the perfect match. I don't know if it will be enough, but we will give everything.
"It would have been better to play Juventus with a bit more self-confidence. They've won the title in the past three years and are full of confidence. I don't know how far we can go but I do know where we started from. We can't think that we're like them, but in a one-off match, let's hope that we can overcome this with our desire."
The match will have an added edge because of the fact that Juventus is now managed by the man who quite recently was in the dugout at the San Siro – Massimilliano Allegri.
If anyone will target a win more on Saturday against AC Milan, it will be Allegri. "On a personal note, the match won't be a game like any other," admitted Allegri. "If I said otherwise, I wouldn't be human.
"I spent three-and-a-half wonderful years and it goes without saying that I always had a great relationship with [Milan chief executive Adriano] Galliani, the president and everyone else associated with Milan. It'll be a special and emotionally-charged evening."
