Juventus' Gonzalo Higuain eyes 100th Serie A goal vs. AC Milan
Gonzalo Higuain will aim to score his 100th career Serie A goal when Juventus visit AC Milan at the San Siro on Saturday.
Higuain has scored four league goals for Juventus this season, including one in the 4-1 victory against SPAL on Wednesday. The Argentina international, who has scored 296 goals for club and country in all competitions, scored 71 goals with Napoli after a move from Real Madrid in 2013 and has scored 28 times since moving to Juve in 2016.
His teammate, Paulo Dybala, has scored 11 goals this season, leaving him joint-third among all players in Europe's top five leagues. Dybala's four goals from outside the box, including one against SPAL, are the most in Serie A.
All told, Juventus are the first team in 66 years to score at least 31 goals in their first 10 league games. They were also the last team to do it, as they scored 32 goals in their first 10 league games in the 1951-52 season and went on to win the Serie A title.
This season, Juventus have not lost a league game away from home, earning victories at Genoa, Sassuolo, Atalanta and Udinese. They have lost just one of their last 14 Serie A games away from home, a 3-1 defeat against Roma on May 14.
Milan, meanwhile, have failed to win their last three home games, losing to Roma and drawing against Genoa in Serie A as well as earning a goalless draw against AEK Athens in the Europa League.
Including a 3-2 defeat against rivals Inter Milan, the home team, on Oct. 15, AC Milan have not won their last four games at the San Siro.
Milan have also claimed a victory over Juventus only once in the teams' last 13 meetings. That was on Oct. 22, 2016 -- a Serie A game at the San Siro in which Manuel Locatelli scored the winner in the 65th minute of a 1-0 win.
Leonardo Bonucci will not play against his former team after he was suspended for two games following a red card in the goalless draw with Genoa.
The centre-back had spent seven seasons with Juventus and made 319 appearances in all competitions before leaving for Milan in July on a €42 million transfer.
