Welcome to the Forza Italian Football live blog, as Juventus continue to seek their first Serie A win when they welcome AC Milan to the Allianz Stadium.
The Bianconeri have endured a difficult start to the campaign, after throwing a lead to draw against Udinese before falling to defeats to Empoli and Napoli respectively.
Milan, on the other hand, have secured wins from all their league games so far and would relish a victory against their rivals to maintain their perfect start.
Serie A LIVE – Juventus v Milan: Final Score
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri to DAZN: “Tonight I’m quite angry about what happened. Despite the team having a good first half, in which we conceded few chances, in the second we risked losing it. Until 1-1 the game was under control.
“We have lost that attention, that determination, just look at the way in which we conceded the goal. There are moments in which there is no way that others can score and we have to improve on this.”
It has been a historic start to the season for Juventus, but for all the wrong reasons as they fail to win any of their first four league games since 1961.

Milan coach Stefano Pioli to DAZN: “We came here to win, but in the first 20 minutes Juve were better. But we resisted and we tried to win it until the end, the performance is certainly positive.
“I give [Rebic] praise every day and every match. He is a player who plays in different roles, he is giving us a hand in a position where we do not have Ibrahimovic or Giroud. He can help us break up the games, he must continue like this.”
Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli to DAZN: “We didn’t start well but we were good at reacting, now we are going to focus on Venezia. We know we could have done better at Anfield (in the Champions League against Liverpool in midweek), today we were good at making up for it and we played a great game.”

Full-time – Juventus 1-1 Milan
It ends all square at the Allianz Stadium and Juventus’ search for a victory continues. The Bianconeri were in complete control in the first half but Rebic’s late equaliser sees Milan join Inter at the top of the table.
Minute 90 – Three added on
Stoppage time in Turin and Juventus have three minutes to find a goal and earn a first win of the league campaign. Ex-Milan midfielder Locatelli steps up to swing in a freekick, but it’s a dreadful effort.
Minute 87 – Incredible Szczesny save
Szczesny may have just rescued the point for Juventus, as he produces a stunning save. Rebic releases Kalulu in space on the right and he cuts into the box to fire in from close range, but a point-blank stop tips the ball over the bar.
Minute 82 – Into the last 10 minutes
We’re edging closer to the end of this thrilling encounter and the momentum has swung Milan’s way, with Rebic going close again. At the other end, Juventus almost race clear as Kean robs Tomori, but the Italian international handles as he forces his way through.

Minute 76 – GOAL MILAN!
It’s there! Tonali whips in a corner and Rebic ghosts in between Locatelli and Rabiot to rise highest and head in off the post. Just as Juventus were looking set for a first win, Milan come up with a huge goal. Juventus 1-1 Milan.
Minute 70 – Leao fires over
Leao hasn’t seen much in this match but he finds possession wide on the left and after a couple of step overs, unleashes a vicious effort. It flies just over the crossbar but it’s the closest Milan have come so far.
Minute 65 – A scuffle breaks out
Morata goes to the ground after chasing a long pass, but Milan play on without kicking the ball out. Dybala lets his frustrations boil over and leaves a foot in on Tonali, before the pair shove each other and are separated by teammates. Morata limps off and is replaced by Kean.
Minute 62 – Big chance for Diaz
Diaz plays a nice one-two with Saelemaekers and works his way into the box, but the Spaniard is smothered by Chiellini and Danilo before he can apply the finish. He goes down but the referee waves play on.
Minute 55 – Milan putting pressure on
Milan are trying to push Juventus back and work the ball into the box, with Kalulu sending a dangerous cross in. The Rossoneri are looking more composed in midfield but Juventus continue to pose a threat on the counter.
Minute 50 – Rabiot close
Bonucci picks out Rabiot with a magnificent pass over the top to catch the defence out, but the Frenchman can’t quite bring the ball under control and it flies just beyond the post.
Second half begins
We’re back underway at the Allianz Stadium, with no changes for either side.
Half-time – Juventus 1-0 Milan
The teams head back down the tunnel for the interval. After racing ahead early on, Juventus have been good value for their lead and have handled Milan well. Can the Rossoneri find a way back into this?
Minute 43 – Milan come close
With half-time approaching, Milan see their best chances as Rebic finds space in the box to turn and shoot. His effort is bravely blocked by Chiellini though, and the rebound is dragged wide by Tonali.
Minute 37 – Kjaer forced off
Bad news for Milan, as Kjaer pulls up with an injury and can’t continue. The Dane is replaced by Kalulu, but with Tomori already forced to cover at right-back due to mounting defensive injuries, it’s an issue coach Pioli could do without.
Minute 32 – Huge Tomori challenge
Juventus are almost in again on the counter as Rabiot is released over the top, but Tomori shows great pace to catch up with the Frenchman before forcing the Juventus man off the ball in the box.
Minute 27 – Bonucci drags header over
The dangerous Dybala is brought down on the turn and delivers a wonderful freekick from a central position. It’s met by Bonucci in the box, but the centre-back nods over against his former club. Juventus look up for this.
Minute 23 – Milan struggling to break through
Milan are finally seeing some of the ball but are faced with a solid Juventus block in front of them, and can’t fashion a way through the defence. Hernandez and Diaz are trying to force something from out wide but Rebic is being crowded out in the box.
Minute 17 – Morata forces good save
Juventus are well on top now and Morata is almost in again, as he meets a clever through ball and forces Maignan down low at his near post with a first-time effort.
Minute 12 – Juventus looking dangerous
The early goal has settled any Juventus nerves and the Bianconeri look composed on the ball, whilst Morata is proving a handful for Kjaer on the counter. Chiellini meets a Dybala corner but the goalbound effort is cleared.
4 – Álvaro #Morata has scored the fastest goal for Juventus against AC Milan in Serie A, after 4 minutes, since February 1996 scored by Antonio Conte (3′). Flash.#JuventusMilan #JuveMilan

Minute 4 – GOAL JUVENTUS
From the resulting corner, Juventus clear and launch the ball over the top for Morata to race beyond Hernandez and coolly lift the ball over Maignan. A devastating counterattack and the Bianconeri are ahead! Juventus 1-0 Milan.
Minute 3 – Milan come flying out
Rabiot and Bentancur bump heads in midfield and Milan try to take advantage, with Leao releasing Diaz to allow the Spaniard to dance through the defence, before seeing a deflected shot whistle over the bar.
After a touching tribute to ex-Bianconeri defender Francesco Morini, Juventus get us underway here at the Allianz Stadium.
The teams are out warming up ahead of this huge early season clash.

Juventus, meanwhile, need a win to drag themselves out of the relegation zone. Did anyone see that coming?
Roma’s shock defeat to Hellas Verona earlier today gives Milan the chance to go clear at the top of the Serie A table with victory, at least until Napoli play tomorrow. Can the Rossoneri take advantage of the slip-up by Jose Mourinho’s side?
