Juventus host Inter Milan in what will be the most anticipated match of this weekend. The game will be played at Allianz Stadium in Torino with kickoff at 19:00.
Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan have not shown any signs of slowing down even after being crowned champions of Serie A. They have already won all of their matches after snatching the tittle away from Juventus and will be looking to make it to 5 consecutive winnings on the weekend. Their recent win was a 3-1 win over Roma last Wednesday. Inter have not won in 9 encounters against Juventus when playing away. However, this Saturday they will be looking to sting Juventus to confirm their current supremacy and make Juve suffer as they did for the past years.
Juventus on other hand have had a shambolic and disappointing season. Juventus are now desperate for the three points and will be depending on their rivals dropping points for them to book a place in the top four race. A year ago, Juventus were number 1 with 83 points, today they are number 5 with 72 points a point behind number 4 Napoli and only five points ahead of the Lazio who have a game in hand.
Therefore, this game will have massive consequences on the home team for they must win to stay in the hunt for a return to the Champions League next season. Despite struggling for the recent weeks Juve managed to salvage all the three points last Wednesday when they won 1-3 against Sassuolo a game which saw Andrea Pirlo’s men stay within touching distance of a Champions League place. Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to cause trouble for the visitors as he came up with a vintage performance against Sassuolo a game in which he scored one goal to make it to 28 goals this season.
