Inter Form & Balance Check
Inter Milan’s season has been like a rollercoaster ride. Coach Simone Inzaghi’s men remain in second place, but last weekend in particular again revealed many question marks among Inter fans. They were beaten 1:2 by Spezia. In the last four games, victory and defeat always alternated. If Inter stays true to this series, there should be a win against Juventus on Sunday. Milan has long since written off the championship, which means no title for the second year in a row. The top goal now should be to secure the ticket for the Champions League.
Opponent in the quarter-finals is set
While there is unlikely to be a title in the domestic Serie A this season, Milan still have every chance of claiming their second CL title since 2010. On Friday, the quarter-finals of the Champions League were drawn and with Benfica, the Milanese have got a difficult, but quite feasible task. No matter how this season turns out, there will be upheaval at Inter one way or another. Lukaku has not been much help so far and new blood is needed, especially in attack. Besides Lautaro Martinez, another goal scorer is urgently needed.

The Old Lady from Turin just won’t let it get them down.

There have been a convincing four victories in the last five games. Among them was last weekend, when Juventus beat Sampdoria Genoa 4-2.

Juve dances on two weddings
Alongside strong recent weeks in Serie A, Juventus can continue to have legitimate hopes of the Europa League title. There, the round of 16 against SC Freiburg was on the agenda in the last few days. They won 1-0 against Freiburg in front of their own fans and in the return match last Thursday Juve won 2-0 with goals from Vlahovic and Chiesa.
