Scoring three (3) goals to one (1), Juventus performed a superb demolition job against Internazionale Milan. The latter was literally kept at bay as the Bianconeri sealed their fate early in the said match.

Prediction: Juventus

Juventus, the incumbent champ definitely, takes the upper hand in this particular match. Conte shall and the rest of his men shall not allow an upset after enjoying a defining win.
