The Serie A round of 27 match between Inter and Juventus will take place on March 19 at the San Siro stadium in Milan.
The Milanese last round unexpectedly lost to a modest La Spezia 1:2, suffering their second defeat in their last three matches in Serie A (1 win). “Inter remain in second place in the Italian league table, but the gap to Napoli has already increased to 18 points. In addition, the competitors are getting closer to the Milanese. “Lazio” occupies third place and is only one point behind. “Inter” has lost eight meetings in the current championship (16 wins, two draws), and over the entire last season in Serie A lost only four times. But on the home field the club still performs well: 11 of 13 matches won in the current season in the top division (2 defeats).
The Turin side, after losing to Roma in the league (0-1), won their previous encounter against Sampdoria 4-2. Thus, the team won five of their last six matches in Serie A. “Juventus are getting closer and closer to the European Cup zone in the top division table. They are already in the seventh place and the gap from the sixth position has narrowed to four points. The Turin club has suffered fewer defeats than its upcoming opponent in the current Serie A season – 5 (16 wins, 5 draws). And Juventus defense is much more reliable than that of Milan, conceding 22 goals against 30. It should be noted that the team does not play a draw during 10 meetings in the Italian championship (6 wins, 4 losses).
Juventus have nothing to lose. The team plays free and is not pressured by the result, because the Turin club does not qualify for high places because of the 15-point penalty. That factor could be decisive in the upcoming meeting. Besides, Juventus confidently outplayed Inter 2-0 in the first round.
We think the visitors may well not concede in this match, our forecast is “Juventus win or draw”.
