Milan not to lose (European Handicap)
Cup match from Italy, where Milan seems a good bet. Juventus started 2013 quite bad by losing 1-2 against 10-men Sampdoria, where especially their defence looked quite bad. Coach Antonio Conte will rest Andrea Pirlo, Giorgio Chiellini, Kwadwo Asamoah and Claudio Marchisio, because they are more focused on the championship and Champions League.
After a bad start to the season the championship are out of reach for Milan, and with Barcelona as opponnent in the Champions League, Coppa Italia is their best opportunity to raise a trophy, and they are expected to get into this match with their strongest squad.
Milan has played quite impressive football since november, and it have given them 7 wins in 9 matches, one of them against Juventus.
