Juventus Vs AC Milan: Watch Live Streaming Of Italian Serie A [PREVIEW]

By Tarun Singh, Posted: 04/20/13 04:13AM EDT

Juventus take on AC Milan in Turin Sunday in a game that pits the two most successful Italian teams against each other. Kick-off is at 2:45 pm and can be watched live on beIN SPORT or streamed online (at user's risk).

Between them, Juventus and Milan have won 46 League titles, 14 Italian Cups and nine European Cups in a rivalry as old as Italian football itself. This season Juventus has been comfortably on top, leading Serie A by nine points with six games to go. The Old Lady will hope a win against their rivals will aid their quest to confirm a 29 league title.

Milan have more riding on this game. They are embroiled in a battle for Champions League football next season. They currently occupy third spot (last qualification place) but face pressure from Fiorentina who are only four points behind. If Milan are defeated Sunday and Fiorentina beat Torino, the gap will be reduced to one solitary point.

The Rossoneri will be without striker Mario Balotelli for the game despite a partly successful appeal against his three-game suspension. The former Manchester City striker was given a two game ban for abusing a match official added to a one game ban for yellow card accumulation. It was later revealed that Balotelli's complaints were in response to racist abuse from opposing supporters.

A Milan appeal resulted in the ban being reduced by one game. Unfortunately for Milan manager Massimo Allegri, he will still be without the player for this weekend's fixture. Giampaolo Pazzini is likely to take his place, partnering Stephan El Shaarawy and either M'Baye Niang or Kevin-Prince Boateng in attack. Allegri controversially left El Shaarawy out of Milan's last game against Napoli, sparking rumors of a rift between player and manager. The player was quick to dismiss such allegations.

"I have an excellent rapport with Allegri," he said during a Google Hangout fan interview. "Right from last year, he was like a father to me. He is a great person, as he gives me advice on my football and helped form me as a man. I am grateful to him."

Juventus, who are unbeaten in their last seven games, are missing Anelka, Chiellini, Giovinco and Pepe due to injury. The Old Lady certainly have the squad depth to cope with the injuries. Alessandro Matri and Mirko Vucinic should start up front with Marchisio, Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal behind them in midfield.

Bragging rights are up for grabs in a game that should be a fascinating contest between Italy's two most successful teams.
