This being a Wednesday, traditionally a day of revelation and celebration that carries great significance in Italy, it is the perfect day for a match of this magnitude.

AC Milan lead the Serie A table after 15 matches with 37 points and remain the only side in the Italian top flight that have not lost a single game.

Meanwhile, Scudetto-holders Juventus have been far from their best as they currently sit in fifth place with 27 points, a staggering 10 behind Stefano Pioli’s charges.

Talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has continued his imperial form and recently surpassed Pele’s record and reached a remarkable 758 club goals and is now only one goal away from theĀ recordĀ of Josef Bican at the top of the list.
