Match Preview

One of the biggest matches in the Italian football calendar comes with raised stakes this edition as both sides are locked in a battle for Serie A dominance. Match tomorrow Sunday at 20:45 CET.
After a week of botched planning and comical administrative bungling, both sides finally enter into the Derby D’Italia in less than stellar form. Despite being neck and neck with Juve at the top of the table for most of the season, Inter now face the possibility of finding themselves nine points off the pace. The hosts have underwhelmed for most of 2020 and go into the match having just lost midweek in Lyon after having put in a drab and lifeless shift. And now the Bianconeri are forced to face their most bitter rivals at home but behind closed doors.It is difficult to read how Antonio Conte will approach the match. Will the prospect of being nine points behind the leaders force him to approach the match with a defense first mentality, or will the fact that the match will be played behind closed doors and that the hosts seem to be going through a difficult moment make Conte smell blood and go for the kill?Christian Eriksen’s role in the match will reveal much of Conte’s intentions; should the Dane start the match on the pitch, then Conte will have probably opted for an attacking approach, however, if Matial Vecino starts in his stead, expect Inter to be more prudent.As for the hosts, it seems that their ails are due to just a general malaise and difficulty in evolving both as a squad and as a club in general after over half a decade with Massimo Allergi in charge to Maurizio Sarri’s interpretation of football. The Bianconeri have had problems across the length of the pitch, starting with Giorgio Chiellini’s long term injury which threw a spanner in the defence’s works to an imbalanced and drab midfield.What had always seemed as the sides’ strength through the season, the attack, seems to now be misfiring as well and without Cristiano Ronaldo on the squad, it would have been extremely unlikely for the reigning champions to have been leading the league table at this stage.This match has the feeling of carrying more than just its worth in three points. For the hosts, it could be light at the end of the tunnel that has the team finally playing well and uniting under the Sarri banner. Should the visitors pull off the unlikely upset, it will throw the scudetto race wide open and may even lead to a cataclysmic implosion in the Juve project. It has been a while since we’ve had a Derby D’Italia with so much at stake..

Team News And Statistics

Juventus supporters were happy to see their captain and leader Giorgio Chiellini back on the pitch and starting for the first time since August after recovering from a cruciate knee injury in their 2-1 win over Spal in their previous fixture.Youngster Merih Demiral is a long-term absentee after he sustained a similar cruciate ligament injury in the victory over Roma and after a successful operation is set to miss the rest of the season.Winger Douglas Costa picked up a hamstring injury in their 2-1 Serie A defeat at Hellas Verona last month, can return to the squad, as he was given a timeline of 15-20 days of recovery.

Predicted XI : Wojciech Szczesny; Alex Sandro, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Danilo; Miralem Pjanic, Aaron Ramsey, Blaise Matuidi; Cristiano Ronaldo, Juan Cuadrado, Paulo Dybala.

  There is some good news and some bad news for Antonio Conte heading into this blockbuster fixture. Inter captain and goalkeeper Samir Handanovic is to make his long-awaited return to action in Inter’s upcoming Serie A clash against Juventus, after missing out on the previous six fixtures due to a hand injury.

The bad news is that he will be without the service of speedy wing-back Victor Moses, who sustained a muscle strain in his left thigh during training last week. Influential midfielder Stefano Sensi is also expected to sit out the fixture due to a persistent foot injury, though he may be back in training in the coming days.Ghanian full-back Kwadwo Asamoah might be available for selection after recovering from a knee injury but Conte might not want to rush him into the squad just yet.

Predicted XI Samir Handanovic; Diego Godin, Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij; Cristiano Biraghi, Christian Eriksen, Nico Barella, Marcelo Brozovic, Ashley Young; Romelu Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez
