Get set for a European spectacle this Sunday evening as Juventus welcome AC Milan to the Juventus Stadium in a desperate need of a win in Serie A, while we are also treated to Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain as they take on French rivals Lyon.
We preview both matches below.
Can Juve find their form again against Milan?
Juventus welcome AC Milan to Turin on Sunday but still seem to be struggling to live without their former talismanic forward Cristiano Ronaldo, who left for a Manchester United reunion.
The return of one of their own, manager Massimiliano Allegri, has not quite gone to the plan for the Bianconeri so far, and after three league games they find themselves 16th, suffering two defeats and a draw in the process.
However, Paulo Dybala has been a bright spark for Juve this campaign with a goal and an assist in two league games so far. The Argentinian is expected to take a leading role in the side this season and is 17/10 to score anytime on Sunday night.
AC Milan are one of the three teams alongside Roma and Napoli who have won all three of their matches so far in Serie A and are 12/5 to repeat their recent form with a victory.
Milan boss Stefano Pioli will be delighted to have summer signing Olivier Giroud in his line-up as the Frenchman already has two goals in two league games for the Rossoneri. You can expect him to find his way onto scoresheet either as the first scorer at 11/2, or anytime at 15/8.
PSG aiming to cement top spot with win
Paris Saint-Germain are looking to cement top position in the table when they take on Lyon this Sunday evening.
The Parisian club have shown early impressive form in the league, with the hosts sitting top of Ligue 1 with a 100% winning record, holding a four-point lead over second-placed Angers ahead of the weekend.
PSG’s attacking exploits have been further boosted by the arrival of Lionel Messi, but it has been Kylian Mbappe (four goals) and midfielder Ander Herrera (three goals) that have produced the bulk of PSG’s goals in the league to date this season. You can find the former at 5/2 to continue his recent scoring feat anytime on the night.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have also won their last five home games on the trot, so it may be difficult to see anything other than a home win for the hosts here at 7/20.
Lyon currently occupy seventh place and the visitors have made a reasonable start to their campaign, having picked up wins against Nantes and Strasbourg either side of the international break.
Results overall have been a bit of a mixed bag for Lyon recently, but goals have usually been a regular feature in their matches. Considering that, they are 7/1 to win, with total match goals over 3.5 priced at EVS.
