Milan icon Paolo Maldini said it will be bizarre seeing former team-mate Andrea Pirlo in the dugout for the visitors.
“Seeing Andrea on the other touchline is still a bit strange.
"I still see him as my teammate. We’re rivals tonight, but he will always be my brother.”
Maldini added: "Juventus have more to lose than we do, because if the worst comes to the worst, we’ll still be top of the table tonight.
"We have many difficulties with COVID, injuries and everything else, but these players have already proved over the last few months that they have extraordinary spirit.”
Juve defender Danilo told Sky Sport Italia: “It’s a very important game, we all know that. We have to play to win, as we always do, and this is a game that can give us a really positive boost going forward.
“It’s difficult, but if we play with the right intensity and concentration, then we can get the result.
“We respect Milan, they are in great shape, doing remarkable things and we admire their progress, but we can have our say.”
Juve find themselves 10 points off the lead, albeit with a game in hand. They can climb above Napoli in fourth if they win tonight.
