Serie A champions Inter are looking to put the proverbial nail in Juventus’ coffin as they try to end their ambitions of a top-four finish in the Derby d’Italia.
Serie A 2020/2021 campaign
Venue: Allianz Stadium
Juventus are potentially 90 minutes away from confirming a place outside of Serie A’s top-four for the first time in a decade.
With just a point keeping Juventus out of the Champions League places with two games to go, I Bianconeri know their fate is completely out of their hands so much that they’d need help from other teams if they’re to salvage anything out of what has been a rather disappointing league campaign.
Andrea Pirlo’s men have not looked convincing in their last few games and whilst they got completely battered at home against fierce rivals and another side chasing a place in the top-four AC Milan, they were able to see off Sassuolo three days later in what was a far tougher match than the 3-1 score line might suggest.
That said, there isn’t much riding on this game for Inter Milan as they’ve already secured the league title and there’s seemingly no records for them to break. Yet, Inter fans would love to celebrate an away league victory over Juventus, something they haven’t done since 2012.
Inter Milan are unbeaten in their last 17 games in the league but their last defeat in any competition came at the hands of Juventus in the 1st leg of this season’s Coppa Italia semifinal.
Andrea Pirlo has zero injuries to worry about and so set to have his full squad at his disposal.
Inter Milan have one new injury concern in Aleksandar Kolarov who is struggling with a muscle injury. Arturo Vidal is also set to miss the match as he’s yet to recover from his knee injury.
Juventus’ last five Serie A games: WDWLD
Inter Milan’s last five Serie A games: DWWWW
Juventus are unbeaten in their last 10 league games at home against Inter Milan.
Inter Milan have not done the league double over Juventus since the 2003/04 season.
There is very little riding on this match other than personal pride for Inter Milan. Meanwhile this yet another game that could make or break Juventus’ season.
They desperately need not lose in order to have any chance at their top-four aim. A win would do them a whole world of good but a draw wouldn’t be the worst result in the world. Also with Inter having won their first encounter and having not done the league double over Juventus since 2004, it might be worth taking the risk of going all in on Juventus at 23/20 or playing it safer with Juventus draw no bet at 3/5.
