Juventus and AC Milan played out a 1-1 draw with each other in Serie A this past weekend.

Alvaro Morata put Juventus in the lead after just four minutes, but Milan restored parity at Juventus Stadium oon 76 minutes through Ante Rebic.

The result on Sunday evening means that Juventus are third from bottom in the Serie A table at the moment with just two points from four matches and are now rated at 9/2 by Betfair to win the title this season.

Milan currently find themselves second in the league table with 10 points from four games, level on points with leaders and city rivals Inter Milan, who won the Scudetto last season.

This is what we learned from the match on Sunday evening:

Juventus are in crisis

Okay, it has been just four games, but Juventus are in crisis. This is the first time that the Bianconeri have not won any of their opening four league fixtures since 1961-62. Massimiliano Allegri is a very good manager, and the fans will hope that the Italian tactician gets it sorted soon. With Inter Milan and AC Milan having started the season strongly, there is a chance that the two Milan clubs could be out of sight soon.

Missing Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus are not crumbling down because Cristiano Ronaldo has left, but they are certainly missing that ‘X-factor’. Ronaldo remains one of the best players on the planet, and that is proven by the fact that the Portugal international forward has scored in all three of his appearances for Manchester United so far this season.

AC Milan are title contenders

The Serie A title this season promises to be very competitive, and one of the teams who are genuine contenders are Milan. The Rossoneri finished in the top four of the Serie A table last season and have started the season strongly. They will certainly be in the race and could even go on to win the Scudetto.
