One of these teams is not like the other...right?

So, because Juventus have completely destroyed the last three opponents, anything less than a 3-0 win is unacceptable, right? Gotta keep the train rolling! Blow out everybody! Demolition Derby!

Okay, so maybe not every game will be a complete festival of goals. But it's nice to hope for it!

Anyways.

It's the first visit to the San Siro of the season. With the way Milan have been this season, it'll be interesting to see how many people actually show up, especially considering how their team has played so far this season and all of the controversy surrounding the current coaching position, ownership stats, who Pato is or isn't dating, etc. etc.

But, in games like these, you never quite know which team will show up, regardless of what form they are. It's a rivalry game and they are always absolute battles. We don't have to look back too far in the past to see an example of that, now do we?

What do I know, though. I'm the guy who said Sebastian Giovinco should start over Fabio Quagliarella against Chelsea on Tuesday. And look what happened: Quagliarell's goal got Juventus off and running in a game that ultimately got Roberto Di Matteo fired. How about that!

Oh, Seba scored a goal, too. Nevermind!

If you find yourself a good stream, leave it in the comments section. It's a favor to everybody so we don't have this game on tv and have to rely on the interwebs.
