The backdrop of this game won’t quite be the same as the Coronavirus outbreak in Italy continues to hit Italian football. The Derby d’Italia will be played behind closed doors on Sunday night, having been hastily rearranged after pressure on the league from both sides. These two teams are battling it out for the Serie A title, making this their biggest showdown in years.
It’s a clash which Inter have to win, as they’re six points behind Juve with a game in hand. A draw isn’t enough, while a defeat all but ends their hopes. Lazio’s victory last weekend complicates matters, as they now lead Serie A. These two sides are both desperate to catch them, but only one can close the gap in this three-horse race.

After a run of 3 defeats from 7 matches in all competitions, Maurizio Sarri knows that he is coming under increasing pressure at Juventus at a crucial part of the season. Despite currently staying 2nd in the Serie A, their loss 1-0 at Lyon in the Champions League should have a great impact in their confidence. As for Inter, they hope to end a run of Serie A H2H visits without a goal over their last 4 meetings.
However, Inter look to avenge their defeat to Juventus earlier this season as Conte’s men can make it just 3 points adrift of the Old Lady with a game in hand. But Inter have been far from their best recently, winning just 4 of their last 10 league outings, as they look to dethrone the long-term champions.
Head to Head
Juventus and Inter will meet for the 237th time in the famous Derby d’Italia, while it will be the 174th Serie A encounter between two of the most successful clubs in the history of the Italian top-flight. In the battle of the coaches, Maurizio Sarri and Antonio Conte are set to face each other for the 3rd time with both of them winning on one occasion.
Inter boast the highest number of goals away from home this season, while they also boast the best defensive record in the top flight, conceding just 22 goals. Thus making this clash the opportune moment for the Nerazurris to seek revenge.
The Title Showdown
The Bianconeri did well to beat SPAL 2-1 in their last league match, with Cristiano Ronaldo finding the net in his 11th consecutive Serie A game. The Portuguese striker looks unstoppable at the moment and he will be the man to keep an eye on in the home team. Juventus are eager to retain top position in the table and they are going to take advantage of the fact that Inter’s current form is anything but brilliant.
Inter failed to impress in a loss 2-1 at Lazio and seeing that Maurizio Sarri can count on key players for Sunday’s derby, they could win this game. It is a clash where Inter have to win, as they are 6 points behind Juventus with a game in hand. Considering Lazio’s victory last weekend, things are quite complicated as they lead Serie A at the moment racing past the others. Though both sides are desperate to catch them only one can close in on the gap and be crowned Italian Champions.
Here is the BettingPremier’s lineup prediction for Juventus’s next game.
Defenders: Cuadrado, Bonucci, Chiellini, Sandro
Midfielders: Bentancur, Pjanic, Matuidi, Ramsey
Attackers: Dybala, Ronaldo
Inter Milan Lineup:
Defenders: Godin, De Vrij, Skriniar
Midfielders: Candreva, Vecino, Brozovic, Barella, Young
Attackers: Martinez, Lukaku
Although Inter will be fired up to get the better of a Juventus team who are struggling for consistency, the league leaders will win this game. Especially with Ronaldo motivated to break a long-standing record in Serie A, this may be close but do not be surprised to see the Portuguese pop up with a late winner. But Inter will put in all their best men to work on Sunday to make it difficult for Sarri’s men at Turin.
