Inter Milan vs Juventus Match Analysis & Prediction
19/03/2023 10:45 pm
After an eventful few months since they last met in November, Inter Milan and Juventus contest the 180th Serie A Derby d’Italia on Sunday night.
Both sides progressed in Europe this week, but Inter lead the Old Lady by a big margin in the standings following Juve’s points penalty and have held the upper hand in recent meetings.
Any Scudetto hopes for Inter are long gone, as Serie A leaders Napoli hold an 18-point lead at the top following an eighth league defeat of the season for Simone Inzaghi’s side last time out – away to struggling Spezia.
Fifth-placed Roma are within three points, as Inter’s chronic inconsistency has bitten hard following the winter break. Therefore, victory in the Derby d’Italia would not only provide an immediate uplift but also put them back on the road towards Champions League qualification.
The Nerazzurri reached the quarter-finals of this year’s competition by holding out for a goalless draw against Porto on Tuesday, to secure a 1-0 aggregate win in their last-16 tie. They will now meet Benfica in the last eight.
Eliminated from the Champions League after failing in a group featuring the Lisbon giants – having lost twice to Benfica during the autumn – Juventus were demoted to the Europa League.
That competition has provided some of Juve’s brightest moments in 2023, and Dusan Vlahovic’s penalty set them on the road to success against Bundesliga side Freiburg in midweek, when a 2-0 win in Germany sent them through to the quarter-finals.
In addition to the Coppa Italia, Juventus’ best route to glory in a crisis-hit season surely lies in the Europa League, but following last week’s 4-2 victory over Sampdoria, Max Allegri’s side sit seventh in Serie A and have not given up on gatecrashing the top four.

Rabiot will start once again for Juventus, but Max Allegri is expected to make a change further forward, as Angel Di Maria comes in for Moise Kean.
With Arkadiusz Milik only just returning from injury, Di Maria supports Dusan Vlahovic up front, while Federico Chiesa should also make an appearance from the bench following his recent comeback.
