Serie A Preview | Inter vs. Juventus: Derby d’Italia battle

by | Oct 22, 2021 21:05

Title holders Inter face the previous incumbents Juventus in a showdown for Scudetto contender points, after both had mixed results so far this season.

Simone Inzaghi had a strong start after replacing Antonio Conte, but is reeling after the first Serie A defeat of the season, 3-1 at Lazio. They did get some confidence back with a midweek Champions League victory over Sheriff and the treatment room is now empty, with even Stefano Sensi back in the squad and Hakan Calhanoglu probably returning from the start.

Juve had stumbled at the beginning, still readjusting to life without Cristiano Ronaldo, but have now found their rhythm under Max Allegri with four consecutive 1-0 wins in all competition. Paulo Dybala remains in doubt, while Adrien Rabiot has recovered from COVID-19, but Allegri could go for experience in defence.
