The Serie A reaches the perfect crescendo this weekend in an enticing scudetto in the Derby Italia. Inter Milan chase their first taste of silverware after yeas against Juventus on Sunday night at San Siro with kickoff at 10:45 pm.
Defending champions Juventus are fourth on the Serie A table with 33 points while being four points adrift of their Sunday opponents. A game in hand could motivate both sides to pick up a win to close the gap.
It was unfortunate for Inter Milan, who lost their relentless run of 8 straight Serie A wins against Sampdoria. This Sunday marks an important date in the Calcio calendar, with Inter boasting of a streak of five consecutive home league wins.
The side picked only one point from their last two league games. Therefore, picking three points this Sunday will widen their gap against their old foes, Juventus. Furthermore, the side needs to keep check of their league-leading AC Milan.
Romelu Lukaku proved Man of the Match after sealing a decisive goal in the 119th minute to book a spot for Antonio Conte into the Coppa Italia quarter-finals.
This Sunday provides a spectacle as Lukaku heads against Ronaldo, who is giving him a race for the Capocannoiere. Lukaku holds 12 goals against 15 goals netted by Ronaldo this season.
