After reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League, Inter will now focus on the Derby d’Italia on Sunday night. The Nerazzurri are sitting in the second position at the table, but have to keep winning to stay in the top four, as Lazio, Milan, and Roma are close. Inter will have to be more consistent, as they lost their last league game against Spezia. Juve have been playing some good football off late and will pose a threat at the Meazza.
The Bianconeri are coming with a brilliant performance against Freiburg. Vlahovic and Chiesa helped the Old Lady to a 2-0 victory as Juve proceeded to the quarter-finals of the Europa League. It was their third consecutive victory, and they have been in great shape over the last month. Despite the 15-point hit, Juve are playing brilliantly on the pitch. Allegri faced criticism over his style of play, but his methods are showing results now.
Derby d’Italia: team news, tactics, and prediction
Inzaghi will miss the services of Robin Gosens and Bastoni on the left. So Dimarco will retain his position, and Acerbi will shift to the left side of the back three. The former Lazio defender prefers his left foot, so he will be comfortable playing on the left while De Vrij and Srkiniar will accompany him. Brozovic should return to the lineup, as the Croatian midfielder started on the bench against Porto.
The visitors have several injury issues in their camp but will be confident coming into this game. Milik, Alex Sandro, Bonucci, Kean, and Pogba are out due to respective injury issues. However, the Bianconeri still have quality options to choose from and the return of Chiesa has uplifted the team. Inter will have to be wary of Vlahovic, as he can exploit their high line.
Both the teams will be slightly tired for this game, and it will be an even contest as Juve are in good form.
Inter Milan 2-1 Juventus.
