Italian football bragging rights and a shot at domestic cup glory are on the line tonight as Serie A leaders Juventus go head-to-head with AC Milan in the Coppa Italia semi-finals. Our guide explains all the easiest ways to watch Juventus vs AC Milan via live stream, helping you to follow all the action from anywhere in the world.
AC Milan vs Juventus live stream – where and when
The first leg of the AC Milan vs Juventus Coppa Italia semi-final takes place at the stunning San Siro stadium in Milan. Kick-off is schedule for 8.45pm local time (CET), which is 7.45pm for those tuning in from the UK, and 2.45pm ET or 11.45am PT for soccer fans in the States.
Both of the storied Italians sides will be keen to put one foot in the Coppa Italia final this Thursday, but for AC Milan, the Italian cup competition represents one last chance to salvage an otherwise lost season.
Under-fire manager Stefano Pioli and his AC team currently find themselves a disappointing 10th place in the Serie A table, and just last weekend suffered a crushing 4-2 to bitter local rivals Inter – despite having a 2-0 lead at one point in the match.
Juventus, on the other hand, are the current league leaders as the season approaches squeaky bum time. While coach Maurizio Sarri is also facing considerable scrutiny from the Old Lady faithful, the fact is Juve could still comfortably secure a domestic double and are in the Champions League last 16. With star player Cristiano Ronaldo in a rich vein of goal-scoring form, they certainly enter this match as favorites and give us every reason to watch Serie A right down to the final whistle this year.
How to live stream AC Milan vs Juventus wherever you are
Read on if you’re an Italian football fan based in the UK, US, Australia or Canada, as we’ll tell you the best ways to watch AC Milan vs Juventus tonight (spoiler alert, it’s ESPN+ in the US).
However, if you’re away from home for whatever reason, you’ll likely discover that you can’t access your usual football or soccer broadcasting service. Online football streams tend to be geo-blocked, meaning they can only be accessed in the country of origin, but there is a workaround. The only legal way we know of getting around this is to use a VPN, which certainly beats trying to find a dodgy feed online.
A VPN – or Virtual Private Network – is software that effectively let’s you change the location of the IP address on your laptop, phone, tablet or anything else really. We’ve tested loads of VPNs and can recommend ExpressVPN as the best VPN out there right now.
ExpressVPN is our #1 top rated VPN thanks to its smooth connections, robust security and sheer amount of international servers. Plus, it can be used in conjunction with a range of devices including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets, games consoles, etc. Check out Express VPN with a 30-day money back guarantee or sign up for a year for 49% off and an extra 3 months free.
ExpressVPN is super simple to operate once installed – just fire it up, select your server location and your device will think it’s somewhere completely different. And VPNs are also great for staying secure online and getting around restricted websites.
How to watch AC Milan vs Juventus: live stream tonight’s soccer in the US

AC Milan vs Juventus live stream: can I watch tonight’s match in Australia?
Sadly, tonight’s Milan vs Juventus match isn’t being aired in Australia – possibly because it has a slightly unsociable kick-off time of 6.45am AEDT on Friday morning.
