Serie A: Inter vs Juventus preview


Defending Serie A champions Juventus have a crucial match to play on Saturday as they visit Inter at Giuseppe Meazza Stadium in Milan, this match could decide if the Bianconeri win their seventh consecutive league title or if they lose it. The reverse fixture was played in December and it ended goalless at the Allianz Stadium in Turin. Last season Inter managed to beat Juventus in Milan, it ended 2-1 with goals from goals from Mauro Icardi and Ivan Perisic. Juventus have not won at Inter since 2015 and have lost the last two away matches against them.

Inter are hoping to end a good season with a placement in the Serie A top four, a position which would allow them to play in the Champions League next season. They are in fifth place at the moment after last week's 2-1 victory at Chievo, but third-placed Roma and fourth-placed Lazio are just one point ahead. With just four matches left in the season, the three-horse race for the final two places in the top four will most likely go down to the wire, but Inter do need to at least avoid defeat against Juventus. Roberto Gagliardini is still injured and will sit this one out, while Matias Vecino is a fitness doubt.

Juventus seemed to have everything sorted out for their seventh consecutive Serie A title, but things got turned on their head last weekend as Napoli defeated the Bianconeri 1-0 in Turin. That result puts Napoli just one point behind leaders Juventus, so if the Bianconeri slip up at Inter then Napoli could leapfrog them at the top of the table with a win at Fiorentina on Sunday. Juventus seem to have lost their traction after being knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid as they also got held to a 1-1 Serie A draw by relegation candidates Crotone. Giorgio Chiellini, Mattia De Sciglio, Stefano Sturaro and Claudio Marchisio are all injured and won't be available for Saturday's match.

Probable line-ups:

Inter: Handanovic - Cancelo, Miranda, Skriniar, D'Ambrosio - Valero, Brozovic - Candreva, Rafinha, Perisic - Icardi

Juventus: Buffon - Howedes, Benatia, Rugani, Sandro - Pjanic, Khedira - Costa, Dybala, Mandzukic - Higuain

My prediction: 1-1 draw.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Inter win - 3.25
Draw - 3.25
Juventus win - 2.29
