Inter vs. Juventus: Conte’s combined XI

by | Oct 24, 2021 12:08

Antonio Conte played a key role in the recent successes of Juventus and Inter, so we take a look at his combined XI ahead of tonight’s derby d’Italia.

The former midfielder has coached both clubs during his career.

He remained in charge of Juventus from 2011 until 2014. He won the first Serie A titles after the Calciopoli era.

The first one came with Massimiliano Allegri’s Milan as their main contenders with Juventus that managed to end the season unbeaten.

Andrea Pirlo joined the Bianconeri that same summer with Arturo Vidal, so Conte switched to a three-man defence and a five-man midfield creating the iconic BBC with Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Barzagli.

Conte left Juventus in the first game into preseason in 2014 and was appointed by Italy.

He returned to the Belpaese in 2019, taking over at Inter.

It took just two years to win the first Serie A title for the Nerazzurri in 11 seasons.

Oddly, Conte always played against Juventus behind closed doors, so he never faced Juventus fans during his two-year reign at San Siro.

In March 2020, Inter travelled to Turin just before the lockdown and stadiums were still closed when the Nerazzurri returned to the Allianz Stadium this past May.

In between, Inter picked up a 0-0 draw against Juventus in Coppa Italia with Conte and Agnelli, who insulted each other at the break and after the final whistle.

Now that Conte’s gone, we take a look at his combined XI for Juventus and Inter.

Conte Combined XI (3-5-2): Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Hakimi, Vidal, Pirlo, Barella, Perisic; Lautaro Martinez, Lukaku.
