Milan await the return of the Old Lady

Milan and Juventus fans all over the world have been awaiting the return of Old Lady to the San Siro and it has finally arrived after two years, the classic match was missed last season, when Juventus where sent down to Serie B due to their involvement in the calciopoli scandal, but this season's promises to be great.

The last game between the two teams, at the San Siro, ended in a 3-1 win to the home team, but this game will be much closer. Milan are still without a win at the San Siro, and this would be the perfect game for the rossoneri to end their taboo, while Juventus are in fine fashion and they come into this game on the back of a 5-0 drubbing of Palermo.

Juventus however will be without Italy's World Cup winner Mauro Camoranesi as he had to pull out with a right thigh problem while Zdenek Grygera also didn't make the trip.

Milan too have their own injury problems as they will be once again without Brazilian Ronaldo as his calf continues to pose problems for him. This has forced Pippo Inzaghi to make an earlier comeback into the team, as he is still suffering from a fever, but he is not set to start upfront for the rossoneri.

Alberto Gilardino is said to be starting alone upfront where he will be supported by Kaka and Seedorf, the latter is still having problems with his ankle but will still start. Nevetheless, Ambrosini has returned in time for the crucial game after going off injured against Cagliari last weekend.
This game has always been a classic and with Juventus in stunning form will they be able to continue Milan's crisis at home?
