Well at least PSV have lost some key men after last season's amazing Champions League run. Weird that the preview may seem, the writers are usually spot-on on their predictions 2-0 is probably the most likely outcome too, what do you think?

Yep, he's 9 years old and his name is Christian. Too early to say what level he will play at. I hope people leave him to develop and don't put too much pressure on him.

Wow... last year PSV was better then AC Milan in the San Siro match, but AC Milan won ... and tonight AC Milan was the better team, but PSV stood their ground, and got a point!
Great goalkeeping by our Gomez btw...

Seedorf was shite as usual

...and kudos to Hiddink to fielding a kid that's barely 17 years old, and who played pretty damn good considering he was playing against some of the world's most feared players...

Looking forward to the rematch in Eindhoven, which AC Milan will probably win IF they play like they did tonight...

Ancelotti described it as our best performance so far this season. Hope we don't regret the two dropped points at the end of the group stage.

Heard Donadoni was also candidate to follow up of Ancelotti, he's now at Livorno and doing a fine job.

Why don't you talk about the 0-0 in San Siro versus PSV Eindhoven?

We sort of were, just I have no details.

barryvs, Donadoni won't replace Ancelotti. Baresi, Tassotti or Van Basten will. Rijkaard is mentioned, but it won't happen.

Emerson And Vieira Both Have Weaknesses - Kaka

Milan playmaker Kaka believes there is plenty of room for optimism ahead of this weekend’s crunch clash with Juventus.

The bianconeri have made an unbeaten start to the season and are many people’s favourites for the game, but Kaka thinks they are far from perfect.

"Juve are a really great side especially in defence but the Champions League defeat in Munich proved they are not invincible," he told the Italian press.

"Emerson and Vieira are good players but both have some weaknesses. I will be looking to make space. The game is as balanced as the great Champions League clash, it has a special motivation."

He also had a word for Alberto Gilardino who is now scoring with regularity since his move from Parma.

"As I said about Gilardino once he broke the ice he wouldn’t stop scoring," added the Brazilian. "He’s formidable as well as very relaxed and assured."

To think he's saying that

Wonder what's his purpose.

Serie A Preview: Milan-Juventus

This may only be the tenth match-day of the campaign, but some fans and also those who are impartial see this fixture as a prelude to who will win Lo Scudetto at season’s end. The clubs themselves, however, do not see it this way at all.

BACKGROUND

Memories of the two encounters between these sides during last season immediately come to mind, with both holding a certain amount of significance. The first match, on December 18, 2004 (at Juve’s Stadio Delle Alpi), was a very entertaining scoreless draw, but Milan clearly played better, and came within inches of scoring on several occasions. Then, in the return-fixture in late May at Milan’s Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, or as it is affectionately known, the San Siro (where the current match at hand takes place), it was all still left to play for, with Milan and Juventus level on points at the top of the table. Fresh off their advancement to the Champions League final by defeating PSV Eindhoven (albeit only by the skin of their teeth), Milan carried that very same form into the match against Juve, and were beaten 1-0. The victory came by virtue of a spectacular overhead-kick from Alessandro Del Piero, which caught the Milan defense napping, and was then headed into the net by David Trezeguet in the 27th minute. Milan pushed for an equalizer, but could not get through the Bianconeri rearguard. Subsequently, Juventus went on to win the title a few weeks later, and Milan finished the season empty-handed.

Now, Milan have a new season to put past failures behind them, or so they thought. In the lead-up to this weekend’s match, many questions about the defeat of last season continue to surface. Despite denial from members of both clubs that it has any bearing on what is to occur in the future, the players and coaches have had to address it, even if only briefly. The date May 8, 2005 (when Juve defeated Milan) keeps coming up, and it must remind the Rossoneri somewhat of the feelings they experienced when they could not get away from the constant questioning about their collapse in the Champions League final against Liverpool.

Milan have won their last six Serie A matches, and their form is improving daily. The main question for the Rossoneri in this match is: can they defeat a side like Juventus without a fully-fit squad? Captain Paolo Maldini will return to the lineup, after sitting out the win over Empoli on Wednesday. Another player coming back into the fold is fellow-defender Alessandro Nesta, who sustained an injury to his left fore finger several weeks ago on international duty. Several doubts include Jaap Stam, Massimo Ambrosini, and Andriy Shevchenko. Stam has a thigh injury, and may make the substitutes bench, while Ambrosini will not be available. Shevchenko injured his heel and ankle against PSV Eindhoven ten days ago, and the decision on whether to field him will not be made until further testing.

Juventus are in terrific form, as they have started the season with nine wins on the trot in domestic competition. The lone blemish on their season was the 2-1 loss in Munich, Germany to Bayern in the Champions League. Otherwise, the Bianconeri have basically swept aside any and all challengers. A big reason for this has been the added depth to their attack. Alessandro Del Piero has seen a return to the form of old, and Adrian Mutu has filled in well when needed. Another key addition was that of Patrick Vieira who, after coming to Turin on the cheap from Arsenal, has quickly built a solid central-midfield partnership with the gritty-Brazilian Emerson. Both players are tough-tackling intimidators who have a flare for the attack.

On the other hand, not all agree with the supposed formidability of this central-midfield pairing. Milan attacking-midfielder Kakà recently spoke about these two players, saying: “Juve are a really great side especially in defence but the Champions League defeat in Munich proved they are not invincible," he opined. "Emerson and Vieira are good players but both have some weaknesses. I will be looking to make space.”

An interesting piece of news is that goalkeeper Christian Abbiati will not play in this match, and the reason is two-fold. First of all, he has tonsillitis. Second, and most importantly, he has personal motives which prevent him from playing against Milan (he is currently on-loan to Juventus from Milan).

And so, we can now bask in the glow which radiates from the quality these two squads possess.


TEAM NEWS

Milan will have the returned-services of Paolo Maldini and Alessandro Nesta, but will definitely be without Jaap Stam and Massimo Ambrosini. Andriy Shevchenko is also very doubtful.

Juventus will get Patrick Vieira back in the lineup, after he had some time out because of an abdominal-injury. There are no other serious injury concerns, besides the long-term exceptions of Gianluigi Buffon and Jonathan Zebina.


PLAYERS TO WATCH

Kakà (Milan)
After he made the claims of weakness in the Juventus midfield, he had better back it up with his play. He should expect to see (and feel) a lot of late tackles, courtesy of Emerson and Vieira.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Juventus)
This Swede is not your typical center-forward. While he does have the desired height, his dribbling skills make him a terror for any defense. Against Milan, he may be able to get behind the aging and not completely-healthy backline.


POSSIBLE STARTING XI’s

Milan (4-3-1-2):
Dida; Cafù, Nesta, Maldini, Kaladze; Gattuso, Pirlo, Seedorf; Kakà; Gilardino, Inzaghi

Juventus (4-4-2):
Chimenti; Pessotto, Thuram, Cannavaro, Zambrotta; Camoranesi, Emerson, Vieira, Nedved; Ibrahimovic, Trezeguet


PREDICTION
The players will use the comments of the press and the other side as serious motivation to prove how good they are, worthy of the consideration they receive from many. With the midfield battle likely to be a dogfight, the play on the wings will be instrumental in determining the outcome, specifically the service provided for the strikers. A tight match is on the cards, and one mistake or moment of brilliance shall decide the result.

Milan 1-0 Juventus

Should be a brilliant game, but it is a must-win for Milan, even though the season is relatively new. Trailing a powerhouse like Juventus at this stage by five or even as many as eight points is a huge blow. They're not the kind of team that collapse. They tend to get better as the season goes on.

Merged Post:

I'm worried. We're leading Juventus 3-0 at half-time.....if and when we concede, we're going to collapse like we did against Liverpool.

EDIT: It has finished, AC Milan 3 (Seedorf 13, Kaka 26, Pirlo 45) Juventus 1 (Trezeguet 76)

The gap is down to two points (until we mess up in our next league match)

Great win for AC, although I prefer Juve

Puts them in touching distance now 2 points behind.

Nice free kick from Pirlo
Quote:
AC Milan 3-1 Juventus

AC Milan opened up the Serie A championship race with a deserved victory over Juventus, ending their rival's 100% start to the season and reducing the gap between the two sides at the top of the table to two points.

Clarence Seedorf opened the scoring for the home side after 14 minutes and with almost 80,000 fans baying for more, Kaka duly obliged with an acrobatic strike in the 26th minute.

The game was effectively over on the stroke of half-time when another set-piece allowed Andrea Pirlo to put the home side three ahead.

David Trezeguet gave the visitors some hope in the 76th minute but it was to be nothing more than a consolation as the home side held on to claim their seventh success of the campaign.

Filippo Inzaghi was preferred to Christian Vieri in the Milan attack while captain Paolo Maldini was back after injury to oust Alessandro Costacurta in the centre of defence.

Meanwhile, Patrick Vieira and Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned for Juve while Christian Abbiati, on loan with the Bianconeri this season, was out injured, his place in goal being taken by Antonio Chimenti.

The early exchanges were more in keeping with a basketball match than a football game, with both sides charging upfield but losing possession with alarming regularity.

And it was the home team who were first to make one of their bursts of possession count, with Seedorf's shot deflecting wickedly off Vieira and looping almost in slow motion over Chimenti into the back of the net.

The game was always likely to be decided in midfield and, with the Milan engine room of Gennaro Gattuso, Kaka and Pirlo working overtime, there could be no complaints when Kaka grabbed the second in the 26th minute.

Lilian Thuram picked up a yellow card for his foul on the Brazilian out on the Milan right - but Juve's collective punishment was to be more severe.

Pirlo's free-kick bobbled around dangerously inside the Juve penalty area, with Alberto Gilardino almost benefiting, but the ball finally sat up for Kaka, who acrobatically fired a 10-yard shot beyond Chimenti's reach.

Emerson was the next to be punished for a foul on Kaka, but although he was spared a yellow card for blocking the Brazilian, he was not spared the blame for providing Pirlo with the opportunity to fire a 25-yard free-kick home to make it 3-0.

Chimenti's failure to save the low effort will have been a topic for discussion as the half-time whistle blew shortly afterwards.

Whatever words were exchanged in the Juve dressing room during the break, Chimenti had failed to take note as he almost made another crucial error just 10 minutes into the second half.

Pirlo again asked the question with another low free-kick and it almost yielded the same result, with the Juve goalkeeper scrambling across and fumbling the ball just wide of the post.

Jaap Stam and Ibrahimovic were involved in an altercation that ended with a yellow card each but the clash inside the Milan box was the first sign of fraying tempers as the pressure rose inside the San Siro.

Juventus grabbed a lifeline when Vieira delicately lobbed the ball over the Milan back four to fellow Frenchman Trezeguet, who fired his effort past Dida.

With memories of Milan's Champions League final surrender to Liverpool springing to mind - Carlo Ancelotti's side famously threw away a 3-0 half-time lead to draw 3-3 and eventually lose on penalties - the pressure immediately switched to the home side.

But on this occasion, Milan held on as they prevented Juve from getting another sniff of goal.

Poor defending for the Juventus goal. They were holding a perfectly good line, but Stam got sucked backwards by Ibrahimovic's run allowing Trezeguet to get behind Maldini and Nesta who believed it was going to be offside as the two of them had set the trap perfectly.
