Juventus vs Inter Milan: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
The Derby D’Italia was dubbed to be a neck-and-neck race this season, whilst it hasn’t worked out that way, this one is always an inspiring game.
After their summer business, Luciano Spalletti’s Inter Milan were tipped to potentially challenge Massimiliano’s Allegri for Serie A superiority.
Of course hindsight is 20/20, as after 14 games the Bianconeri are 11 points ahead of the Nerazzurri, with the former not having lost a game yet, maintaining their position as kings of Italian football.
Despite there likely being no Scudetto repercussions from this match, the Derby D’Italia is of course always a fiery affair due to the history and hatred that often boils over between these sides.
It’s no surprise that Juventus top the table, considering they’ve scored the most goals and conceded the least in Serie A this season. Inter are no chumps either however, scoring the joint second most goals whilst conceding the second least.
The home side have the best home form in the entire league, winning six, drawing one and losing none, whilst the visitors have the second best away from in the league, winning four, drawing one and losing two. Two teams in such strong form make a tough task for betting sites.
This one is being dubbed as star forward against star forward, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Mauro Icardi facing off against each other for the first time. However, considering how impenetrable Allegri’s side have been defensively this season, it could still be a tight affair – Juventus to win 2-1.
- Over 2.5 goals
The Derby D’Italia is always a heated affair, in both emotions and often goals. There have also been at least two goals scored in 14 of Juventus’ last 15 Serie A matches. Whilst the visitors’ games have featured over 2.5 goals in their last four games.
- Cristiano Ronaldo to score any time
This bet makes it two relatively safe bets for this match but that doesn’t mean there’s not great value in them. The Portuguese forward is of course in fantastic form and has always relished the big occasions, as per the match against Inter’s city rivals earlier in the season.
