Juventus vs Inter MilanSerie A, KO: 17:00 May 15, 2021, Allianz Stadium
Juventus continue their push for a top four finish as they host champions Inter Milan in an Italian Serie A fixture at the Allianz Stadium. Both teams boast two of the leading scorers in the Italian topflight and should serve up goals in this one.
Juventus bounced back from their 3-0 defeat to AC Milan in fine style as they triumphed 3-1 at high-flying Sassuolo last time out in Serie A. First half goals from Adrien Rabiot and Cristiano Ronaldo put them in control of the match while Paulo Dybala added the third after the break.
With all the talk swirling around manager Andrea Pirlo’s future at the club, Juventus must rally themselves in the final games of the season to secure Champions League football. They are currently fifth on the table, just three points behind second place Atalanta.
While star man Cristiano Ronaldo has done his bit in attack with 28 Serie A goals this season, the problem for Juventus has been at the other end of the pitch. They are without a clean sheet in 12 Serie A matches and have conceded five goals in the last three.
Inter Milan continued their victory lap with a 3-1 home win over Roma in their previous Serie A fixture. Marcelo Brozovic and Matias Vecino were on target in the first half while Romelu Lukaku added the third on the stroke of 90 minutes after the capital club had pulled one back.
The champions are showing no signs of letting their foot off the gas since clinching their 19th Scudetto with four matches to spare. They travel to Turin unbeaten in 10 away matches in Serie A, although two of the last three have ended in draws.
Antonio Conte’s men have played with plenty of freedom in recent weeks, scoring eight goals in their last two matches. That freedom means they have not been solid at the back lately having conceded in both fixtures.
