LONDON. AC Milan will miss suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the clash of the season so far in Italy when the Rosseneri faces Juventus at San Siro on Saturday evening.

- Milan will miss Zlatan and the odds on them to win, 2.20, reflect that, says Dan Vikman, PR Manager at online bookmaker

Serie A teams are marching on in the Champions League with both AC Milan and Napoli on the verge of knocking-out English giants Arsenal and Chelsea respectively.

In the domestic league, all eyes will be on the top of the table clash this weekend when Juventus travel to Milan, with Juve trailing Milan by a point but with a game in hand.

This is a potential title decider between two of the biggest rivals in Italy. The temperature has risen even more with the handling of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s suspension.

The towering Swede, who orchestrated the 4-0 thrashing of Arsenal at San Siro a fortnight ago, is suspended for three matches after slapping Napoli’s Salvatore Aronica in a match on February 5. Milan appealed against the ban hoping to have one match taken off, but the Italian Football Federation didn’t lift the ban, meaning Ibrahimovic will miss the titanic clash.

- Ibrahimovic has been in great form in recent weeks and of course him being out increases Juventus chances to do something at San Siro, continues Dan Vikman at

Juventus pays 3.25 while the draw is offered at 3.20 at Milan will most likely use Robinho and Pato as strikers and are still missing Kevin-Prince Boateng and Clarence Seedorf due to injuries.

Juve, with the best defensive record in Serie A, will aim to close down Milan’s attacks where Pato pays 5.50 in odds if he scores first in the match.

Vucinic is priced at 7.50 if he would score first in the game for Juventus.
