Juventus vs Inter Milan Serie A

Friday December 7th, 19:30

The weekend of Serie A football starts with the game of the matchday with Italian champions and league leaders Juventus playing host to Inter in a crucial match at the top end of the table. The hosts are favourites to win but this promises to be one of their toughest tests of the campaign.

Predictions

This looks set to be a mouth-watering fixture between the table toppers and third-placed side in Serie A on Friday night.

The form of Juventus – who are aiming for an eighth straight title this season – has been imperious this season. The Bianconeri have dropped just two points from their opening 14 league fixtures.

Inter are 11 points and two places further back in the standings despite winning eight of their most recent 10 Serie A games – which a loss at Atalanta and a draw at Roma last time out the only setbacks.

Juve are overwhelming favourites for the title while Inter will be hoping to be their closest challenger this campaign, with only Napoli currently separating the two.

The hosts will be favourites to make it 14 wins from 15 league games due to possessing home advantage, superior form and quality over the Nerazzurri.

The home side are favourites to win this game although the visitors are a tough side to beat and the hosts may be content with a draw – a 1-1 stalemate would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

These two sides are well-matched – Juve are the stronger side but Inter are in good form and often thrive in these high-pressure matches. Only a last-minute winner in April prevented a 2-2 draw while the two were locked at 0-0 in Turin in this fixture twelve months ago. Inter played out a 2-2 draw with Roma on Sunday night and this fixture is likely to have a similar outcome.

Inter have lost just two of their last five meetings against Juve and on each occasion that was only by a single goal. Luciano Spalletti had a strong record whilst in charge of Roma against the Bianconeri and he will once again be attempting to devise a master-plan for derailing the hosts. The Milanese giants have lost just once in their last 10 league games and are good value to pick up a positive result here on the best online betting sites.
