Match Preview: Inter Milan vs. Juventus

Updated: September 9, 2013

The battle for Serie A’s top spot is on! Inter’s awaited striker, El Principe is expected to make a major comeback and win the victory at home. The long recovery period has already ended and he has no plans of disappointing his supporters.


However, Carlos Tevez and the rest of the Old Lady are determined to turn the odds into their favor. Last season’s Scudetto winners are more than prepared to thrash any club who dares to steal their title.


Inter Milan

Pitted against last season champs, Juventus, Inter Milan shall face one of its most challenging battles in Serie A. What is at stake? The reward is no other than the chance to occupy the top spot in Italy’s top-flight league.


Inter is one of the 5 teams in Serie A that still, keep a clean slate in the rankings. Along with Napoli, Roma, Fiorentina and its upcoming opponent, Juventus, the club has won all of its matches in the league. Overall, it has already collected 6 points, courtesy of Genoa and Catania.
Although the club is still, on the process of having a new management, this barely affect the Nezzarris—not when the overly missed striker, Diego Milito or more fondly called as “El Principe,” is about to return to the pitch.



It is a bit difficult to imagine Juve at the relegation zone of the club’s rankings and this is what the club wants to prove when they go against Inter.
As mentioned, Juve is one of the league’s top contenders and they remain as such by securing 2 consecutive victories. Like Inter, they also maintain an untarnished record in Serie A.


Juve’s strength was evident during the match against Lazio. The Old Lady thrashed its rivals with 4 astonishing goals. They were a bit nice though since Lazio has managed to slip in a goal. Nevertheless, the club’s scoring prowess, also, the successful signing of Carlos Tevez, threaten the club that will prevent them from bagging the Scudetto once again.


Online betting tip: Juventus to score 2 goals

El Principe’s return will indeed, put up a great show. However, the bigger question is whether he is really in a 100% mode to face an equally aggressive squad like Juve. Yes of course, they have the advantage since they will be playing in their own soil. They will most likely score at least 2 goals just like what they did in their last 2 matches and there is a possibility for them to retain such momentum.


However, it must be noted that Juve has managed to keep a clean sheet in 6 of their last 7 away matches. Should El Principe show up, the club will definitely strengthen its flank to prevent a single goal.


During their last 6 encounters, Juve denied Inter to scored twice. Not only that, the club has also won 4  of those matches.


Moreover, scoring is barely a problem for the club. Juve scored a jackpot when it secured the celebrated striker, Carlos Tevez and fortunately, Tevez has already outlived the expectations.


Tevez rallied the club to its first victory against Sampdoria and he sealed Genoa’s coffin when he scored that last minute goal. Teaming up with the likes of Paul Pogba and Andrea Pirlo, Antonio Conte has tons of materials to work with in order to steal the spotlight from the hosts.
