Juventus v AC Milan Sun 19:45
Although the club are yet to lose a game this season, Antonio Conte will know that his side have to start winning more games instead of settling for draws and Sunday will provide them with bigger incentive to do so than most matches will, as they are odds on favourites with Bet365 to claim another three points in their march to another Scudetto.
Juventus will play hosts to Internazionale in the second instalment of this season’s derby d’Italia and although the clubs are further apart in regards to league position than they will be used to, this fixture still holds the same significance to either party.
Speaking to SkySport24, Giorgio Chiellini stated earlier in the week that despite the gap between the sides, this encounter will be just as important as ever, saying:
“It’s true that at the moment, from the media’s point of view, the game against Inter has maybe lost some of its lustre,”
The Italian international added: “Inter this season are going through a difficult period. They were strong but at this time we feel in better shape than them.”
Inter currently sit in eighth spot while Juve are in the substantially more dominant position of second.
I Bianconeri are just four points off AC Milan who lie at the summit of the Serie A table and will be confident of staying within touching distance when they welcome Inter to the Juventus Stadium on Sunday.
Claudio Ranieri’s side are still in a bit of a rough patch despite the fact that they are on a four-match unbeaten run.
Last week saw the Nerazzurri run out a 0-0 stalemate against mid-table Atalanta in yet another disappointing result for the Milan team.
Juventus will be hoping to heap further bad luck upon their age-old rivals by completing this season’s double over Internazionale, signalling a very real shift in power amongst Italy’s elite.
