Juventus vs Inter Milan Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Bookmakers have Juventus at 1.54 to win when they face Inter Milan in a top of the table Serie A clash at the Allianz Stadium on Friday. We are backing this outcome but given the quality in attack for both teams, an added stake on over 2.5 goals should be of value.

Juventus FC Form & Team News


The Old Lady are still the team to beat in Serie A this season as they are eight points clear at the top. They are yet to lose a match after 14 fixtures and are poised to finish top of their group in the UEFA Champions League.

Massimiliano Allegri's men claimed their 13th win of the season thanks to a 3-0 victory away at Fiorentina on Saturday. Top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo was once again on the score sheet as he netted a penalty in the 79th minute after Rodrigo Bentancur and Giorgio Chiellini had given the Turin club a two-goal lead.

Ronaldo appears to have struck up an understanding with the likes of Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala. All three men are expected to continue in attack on Friday while Douglas Costa could come in for Juan Cuadrado after making a second half appearance in Florence.

Internazionale Form & Team News 


Inter Milan appear to be in the middle of a rough patch at the moment having claimed just one win in their last five matches in all competitions. They are still among the frontrunners in the league but sit 11 points behind the hosts.

Luciano Spalletti's men played out a 2-2 draw with Roma in their previous Serie A outing last Sunday. Despite going in front twice through Keita Balde and Mauro Icardi, they failed to see out the win and were pegged back by the capital club.

Icardi’s strike at the Stadio Olimpico took his tally to eight in the Serie A and the Argentine striker is expected to continue in attack on Friday. Keita Balde could also retain his place in the team following his impressive showing in Rome.

Juventus vs Inter Milan Head-to-Head 


Juventus lead the head to head against Inter Milan by 25 wins to 12 from 55 previous fixtures. The Turin club have come out on top in recent matches with three wins and two defeats in the last five meetings.

The Old Lady were unbeaten against Inter Milan last season as they were held goalless in Turin before claiming a 3-2 win at the San Siro.

Juventus vs Inter Milan Match Up


Mandzukic has been one of the standout players for Juventus this season with six goals in 11 matches. The striker combines well with Ronaldo and will be confident of improving his tally against an Inter Milan defence that has conceded six goals in their last three fixtures.

Icardi has scored eight goals in 10 matches against Juventus and the 25-year-old will be the one to watch for Inter Milan on Friday. The Argentine should be a handful for the Juventus defence but could ultimately find it hard against the likes of Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.
