Match Preview Inter vs Juventus Serie A Oct 24, 2021

The Derby d'Italia between the Scudetto champions, Inter Milan, and Juventus, kicks off at 19:45 (GMT+1) on Sunday, October 24 at the San Siro Stadium.

Preview Inter Serie A, Oct 24, 2021

Preview Inter Milan will return to Serie A action following their 3-1 win over Sheriff Tiraspol in the UEFA Champions League Group D fixture on Tuesday, UCL Matchday 3. It was the first win for the 19-time Italian Serie A winners in this edition of the UEFA Champions League. Back on the home front, Inter Milan lost 3-1 to Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico last weekend. Ivan Perišić (12 P.) had Inter Milan in the lead early in the game. But the champions were never really convincing, caught flat-footed at the back on several occasions before the goals eventually began pouring in. Ciro Immobile (64’ P.) restored parity from the spot before Felipe Anderson (81') tucked in a rebound for a Lazio lead. Sergej Milinković-Savić (90’+1) handed Lazio the third to see Inter pick up their first defeat in five Serie A games: WWDWL. However, Inter remained in 3rd place at the end of Matchday 8 despite the defeat, having 17 points after 5W, 2D, & 1L. Simone Inzaghi will fancy a win, but picking up three points from a resurgent Juventus could prove too much to ask. The Italian champions won their last home game against the Old Lady but haven’t picked up consecutive home victories against the Bianconeri in Serie A since 2010. Furthermore, Inter boss Simone Inzaghi has lost more Italian top-flight division matches against Juventus (eight) than any other side as a manager. In addition, Inzaghi has lost each of his three home league games against Massimiliano Allegri. The familiar 3—5—2 formation may be seen again with Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martínez in attack against Juventus on Sunday.

Preview Juventus Serie A, Oct 24, 2021

Preview The Old Lady will make her way back to Serie A action following the narrow 1-0 victory over FC Zenit in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday at the Krestovsky Stadium. Back in Serie A, Juventus remained seventh on the table after a 1-0 win over Roma on Matchday 8. A single strike from Moise Kean (16’) bagged the win for the Killer Lady. With 14 points from 4W, 2D, & 2L, the club remains unbeaten in five Serie A games: DWWWW. Massimiliano Allegri’s side has since found its feet in the murky waters after a slow start to the season. Juventus has picked up five points more than Inter in the last four games and could win five consecutive Serie A matches for the first time since July 2020, when the Old Lady bagged seven in a row under the tutelage of Maurizio Sarri. A dynamic Allegri has switched formations on several occasions to suit the opposition’s style of play. However, a 4—3—3 against Inter may be expected. Paulo Dybala remains sidelined with a thigh injury while Alvaro Morata made his return to the starting lineup against Zenit in the UEFA Champions League.
