Juventus vs Inter Milan Preview

Juventus vs Inter Milan

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Allianz Stadium

Date: 9th December 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

For the second time in as many games, Juventus will lock horns with the league’s leaders.

They were victorious over Napoli last time out – a victory that saw Inter overtake Napoli to become Serie A leaders; however will they be able to find success where Napoli couldn’t?

Last weekend’s win over Napoli was a classic Juventus win.

The champions returned to their famed defensive shape and stifled a Napoli attack that is considered one of the best in Europe.

They went on to win their next game against Olympiacos which confirmed their place in the Champions League’s last 16.

They have had a troubled season until this point but things seem to have turned around for good and another victory here would make their self-believe skyrocket.

Inter Milan remain unbeaten this season and they are obviously benefiting from not playing in Europe.

However, what should be a major concern for the Nerazurri is that only Mauro Icardi seems to be scoring their goals.

This game could be a tight one and if the Old Ladies can stop Icardi.

Inter could end up leave the Juventus Stadium frustrated and off the top of the league table.

Losing at the Juventus stadia is not new to Inter – they have lost their last three games there without scoring a single goal and they have lost seven of their last nine visits there overall.

Inter Milan are not as experienced as Juventus when it comes to winning the Serie A, and that could play against them here given how Juventus have dominated the league for such a long time.

Bookmakers make Juventus odds-on favourites to come out on top in this tie.
