Inter Milan vs Juventus
Italian Serie A.
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (Milan).
Juventus will face another tough test as they face Inter in the latest edition of the Derby d’Italia on Saturday. The Bianconeri come into this game having picked up just one point from their last two games. That includes a shock 1-1 draw with Crotone followed by a 1-0 defeat to Napoli at the Allianz Stadium – which means that the Partenopei have now closed the gap to just one.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side truly have a difficult end to the season as they will take on Inter, and then Roma in the last stages. Both of these two teams are involved in a battle for a Champions League spot so obviously will present tough opposition for the reigning Scudetto champions.
Inter will be equally determined to seal a win here. They are behind Lazio and Roma in the battle for a top four berth, and unless if they can make up the ground they will again miss out on the Champions League. They come into this match having won back to back fixtures, but higher scoring affairs for them are few and far between.
The five goal haul they scored against Sampdoria was a blip rather than something fans have become accustomed to for Luciano Spalletti’s side. The Nerazzurri tend to be more practical, having drawn AC Milan 0-0 and the same goes for Napoli, Roma, and Lazio. More significant, they traveled to Napoli and Juventus and ended up leaving with a vital two points after two scoreless draws.
The hosts may look to Napoli for inspiration if they want to beat Juventus outright, as the Partenopei put on a strong defensive performance before striking at the final moment. Juventus will definitely be feeling the pressure coming into this game as anything less than a win could see Napoli again leapfrog them into top spot.

Inter Milan vs Juventus: Prediction
Both sides are on unbeaten runs. Juventus haven’t lost their last 11 away and Inter are undefeated in their last eight a home.
