Juventus v FC Internazionale Milano - Serie A

Paolo Cannavaro’s inability to impress created doubts if his entry to Sassuolo will yield result. As for Inter’s side, it is time for Hernanes to show what he got and prove why Inter is the match’s online betting favorite.

 

Match Date: 09 February 2014 (local time)
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

Team Form

Inter

Hernanes’ arrival in Inter sparks new hope for the Nerazzuris. The ambidextrous midfielder, who is also a creative playmaker was described by Marco Fassone, the club’s managing director, as an “important signal,” who brings more depth into the squad. Fassone added that his entry also manifests Inter’s high ambition. He also asked the supporters to be more patient with the results as their latest addition will need some time to adjust.

 

Inter’s current form has been a disappointing one. The newly promoted Hellas Verona has overtaken them in the ranking, which might halter their participation in the European competition next season. Adding more insult to injury is their loss in the Derby d’ Italia against Juventus, which gave them their third loss in their last six (6) matches.

 

But on the brighter side of life, Inter’s battle is not yet lost as only two (2) points separate them from entering Serie A’s elite group and hopefully Hernanes could be the talisman they are waiting for.

 

Sassuolo

Sassuolo sank to the relegation zone following a narrow defeat to Hellas Verona. It was the club’s third straight loss.
It seemed that the club’s new head honcho, Alberto Malesani shall have a hard time helping his club survive as their form continue to struggle. They have already lost seven (7) out of their last eight (8) matches and conceded an average of two (2) goals in five (5) of their recent encounters.

 

Many hoped that the entry of former Napoli skipper, Paolo Cannavaro will trigger changes in the club. But much to their disappointment, the high profiled recruit failed to feature.

 

Prediction: Inter

The huge difference between the clubs’ form and performance on the pitch automatically makes Inter as heavy favorite in the match.
