Inter will host Juventus at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan on Serie A Matchday 23 in one of the most highly anticipated Derby d’Italia clashes in recent memory.
The Nerazzurri currently sit on top of the table with 54 points, they have a match in hand due to their involvement and eventual triumph in the Supercoppa Italiana, and they won 1-0 against Fiorentina in their latest Serie A match.
Meanwhile, the Bianconeri have featured in all 22 rounds so far, and they are one point behind the Biscione in second place. La Vecchia Signora had briefly gone up to first place, but they dropped back down to second after a 1-1 draw against Empoli in the previous round of Serie A action.
With both sides fighting for the scudetto, this fixture might prove decisive in the grander scheme of things. However, both Simone Inzaghi of Inter and Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus are coaches that implement the 3-5-2 formation, and they could cancel each other out.
If this becomes a tight clash, it might take a moment of individual brilliance or a calamitous error for one of these teams to secure victory.
