Inter Milan – Juventus
It’s time for the amazing Derby D’Italia between two great rivals – Inter Milan and Juventus. These two Italian powerhouses will face each other at the San Siro in a game from the 18th round of the Serie A. Let’s see what we can offer you as a preview.
Inter Milan approach this game from second round in the standings, keeping their hustle for the Scudetto. The fact that Inter were eliminated from the Champions League could give them an even bigger chance to win the Serie A. Right now the Nerazzurri are just three points behind the leader AC Milan, so they are in a good position to challenge for the first place.
Inter’s manager Antonio Conte has some food for thought at the moment. His team is without a win in its last two matches, so this derby against the Old Lady is a perfect opportunity for Inter to get back on the right path. The Nerazzurri will once again try to use use their potential in attack where Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez are leading the parade.
Juventus are trailing on 7 points behind the leader in the Serie A, so they are aware how important is for them to avoid making any mistakes. We can say it was a difficult start for Andrea Pirlo in his first season as a manager, but lately his team is getting some results.
According to some pundits, Juventus remain favourites to win the title despite being 7 points behind the leader. The Bianconeri are starting to show their potential lately as they are in a run of three consecutive wins in the Serie A. In their last game they hosted Sassuolo at the Allianz Stadium and rocked them with a 3-1 win. Danilo opened the score for Juve while Ramsey and Cristiano Ronaldo finished the job.
We expect a majestic fixture between Inter Milan and Juventus at the San Siro on Sunday. This could be a key game for the Serie A title race. These two clubs are in a huge fight between themselves since 2006 and Calciopoli, so there’s some bad blood here. This is promising in football.
