Inter vs Juventus Serie A Predictions

Serie A Inter Milan vs Juventus
Inter vs Juventus Serie A

The match is over.
Score: 1-2.

The most famous fixture in Italy gives us another act as the top two sides in Serie A do battle, with Antonio Conte hosting his former employers as he looks to extend his excellent start as Inter boss against Maurzio Sarri and the Old Lady.

Predictions

This one might be the best fixture of the entire football calendar as it may simply be too close to call, with two differing styles try to outdo one another with the added fuel of the biggest derby in Italy.

Inter come into this game off the back of an incredible start to the season, winning six of their opening six games and conceding just two goals in the process.

Juve have won five of their opening six games but stumbled away at Fiorentina earlier in the season and that is, so far, proving to be the only difference between these two sides in the table.

Inter’s run has seen them beat Sampdoria, Milan, Lazio, Udinese, Cagliari and Lecce with the big wins against Milan and Sampdoria both coming away from home.

Juventus’ otherwise perfect record is thanks to their wins against SPAL, Brescia, Verona, Napoli and Parma, with the Napoli being the only really strong opponent they’ve faced so far.

This game seriously might be too close to call so for safety reasons, it might be wise to back the score draw and to back a draw being the result at both half time and at full time, if you want to make the most out of some good odds in this fixture. A full time 2-2 draw wouldn’t be out of the question.

Betting Tips

Neither side will be classed as outright favourites for this game, which is why a draw makes sense to back, especially a 2-2 draw. That may be the most lilkely result given how Juventus and Inter both have great attacking talent – and it is among the best online betting odds for this round of Serie A action. 888sport have it as 13/1.

It’s highly likely that these two go into the break level while it’s just as likely that they’ll end the game level pegging as well, so it looks safer to back this bet than to pick an outright winner with the added bonus of not relying on a straight score line to deliver your winnings, with this particular bet rated at 18/5 by 888sport.
