Inter Milan vs Juventus
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 6 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza – San Siro (Milano).
The league leaders will host the reigning Italian champions in the Derby d’Italia on Sunday. Despite Champions League setbacks, the Nerazzurri are still listed as slight favourites ahead of this tie, and rightfully so. They’ve shown more than Juventus this season and Conte got them to play some quality football.

Inter Milan vs Juventus: Prediction
Inter made it six out of six with a 3-1 win over struggling Sampdoria in the previous round. Antonio Conte’s men played decent football against Barcelona as well, but Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi made all the difference in the second half.
Despite Champions League setbacks, the Nerazzurri are still listed as slight favourites ahead of this tie, and rightfully so. They’ve shown more than Juventus this season and Conte got them to play some quality football. Alexis Sanchez is suspended.
Juventus are 2nd in the standings with five wins and a draw, two points behind their arch rivals. The Bianconeri have beaten Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 on Tuesday to record fourth win on the trot across competitions.
With Douglas Costa on the sidelines, they have officially moved to 4-3-1-2 formation that suits Aaron Ramsey and we should see the same setup at Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday. Chiellini, Danilo, De Sciglio, Pjaca and Costa are on the treatment table.
Inter Milan are scoring 2.17 goals per game and conceding 0.33. Their defence works like a charm and they are dangerous going forward. Lukaku has bagged three so far and central midfielders chipped in with six goals. Stefano Sensi seems to be another Beppe Marotta’s master stroke.
Despite some solid wins, Juventus are still unconvincing, especially away from home where they have an average of one goal scored per game, whilst conceding Inter’s numbers. They’ve beaten Parma (1-0), Brescia (2-1) and drew with Fiorentina (0-0) on the road.
All things considered, I have to give Inter Milan an edge and back them in DNB market. They’re hot with fantastic home record, whilst Juventus struggled big time against Fiorentina and looked shaky against Brescia. I will also take 2 or 3 goals to be scored here.
