Juventus is playing catch-up in the Serie A standings, sitting 10 points out of first place, but Wednesday’s showdown with league leaders AC Milan will give Juve a big chance to cut into that lead.
AC Milan has yet to suffer defeat in its opening 15 matches so far, something Weston McKennie and his Juventus teammates will try to change on Wednesday. McKennie continues to rack up minutes in Andrea Pirlo’s squad this season and is coming off a 65-minute outing over the weekend in Sunday’s 4-1 win against Udinese. The Schalke loanee will need to be at his best on Wednesday against AC Milan if he wants to help Juventus pull closer to the top spot in Italy’s top flight.
