Inter Milan vs JuventusSerie A, KO: 19:45 Oct 24, 2021, San Siro
The big clash in Serie A this weekend sees Inter Milan host Juventus at the San Siro. The Turin club are a team on the rise in recent weeks and should provide a stern challenge to the champions, who have looked slightly off colour lately.
Inter Milan will head into Sunday’s clash with plenty of confidence after claiming their first UEFA Champions League win of the season. Goals from Edin Dzeko, Arturo Vidal and Stefan de Vrij earned them a 3-1 victory over Sheriff Tiraspol.
The Nerazzurri are no longer unbeaten in Serie A after suffering a 3-1 defeat to Lazio last time out despite taking the lead through Ivan Perisic. Although that was only their first league defeat of the season, it highlights some inconsistency in recent weeks as they have claimed just one win from their last three Serie A matches.
Despite their recent struggles, Inter Milan have remained solid at home where they are still unbeaten this season. However, Simone Inzaghi’s men were held to a 2-2 draw by Atalanta in their previous home fixture with Edin Dzeko netting a second half equaliser.
Juventus claimed a 1-0 victory over Roma in their previous Serie A fixture with Moise Kean getting the only goal. They followed that up with a 1-0 victory over Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The Turin club are one of the form teams in Serie A this season and have won their last seven matches across all competitions. Their good form has seen them steadily climb the table and they are now seventh, three points behind Inter Milan in third.
Juventus have also impressed on their travels this season and are unbeaten in four of their last five away matches. They have also struggled defensively and have kept just one clean sheet in their last five away matches.
