Antonio Conte and Massimiliano Allegri are very different coaches. Both are popular with the players, have shown faith in youth and achieved success early. But while Conte's Juve is very much just that, his Juventus, Allegri's Milan is still something of an unknown quantity.
The Rossoneri have done excellently to turn their season around after a drastic start. Before November, it had looked like Allegri was not far from the chop as his side looked set to spend the season languishing mid-table.
Since then, the difference has been night and day. The coach must be given credit for that. His work paid off and his rejuvenated squad have salvaged the season and even given a club like Barcelona a run for their money.
But it still lacks personality. Allegri's been on the Milan bench for three seasons now and it's still hard to really describe what his Milan is. Under Conte, Juventus have a clear shape, work ethic and overall outlook on how the game should be played and what it means to wear the Bianconero stripes.
Milan, meanwhile, look a little more ragged. The coach still seems unsure of his best 11 and the players often look uncomfortable with his tactics. The Rossoneri have been carried by a handful of world-class players rather than guided by world-class tactics. This needs to change.
Even this season's great success, El Shaarawy, was more a stroke of luck for Allegri than it was genius. The young winger was fifth choice last season and only promoted after the club got rid of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Antonio Cassano and Pato. He might take the credit now, but had El Shaarawy been a flop he wouldn't have been taking the flack.
In Conte, Allegri is coming up against everything he needs to be if Milan are to push on next season. The Juventus boss is clear in his ideas and his actions and knows how to consistently get the best out of his players. And you can see his side being even better next year.
If Allegri can engineer a victory in Turin, Milan can use the momentum and push for second. They have the players to do it. Now all they need are the tactics.
