Juventus Form & Balance Check
The Old Lady has fallen short of its own standards in recent years. Juventus have not finished at the top of the table in any of the last three seasons. Coach Massimiliano Allegri now wants to change that again this season. However, Juve are currently only in 2nd place in the table.
However, the Old Lady have been in absolutely outstanding form of late, winning their last five games in a row. The Turin side are also benefiting from the fact that they are not represented internationally this season. Before the international break, they beat Cagliari Calcio 2:1
Concerns in the middle
Coach Massimiliano Allegri plays almost exclusively with a 3-5-2, a system in which the three central midfielders are particularly important. However, the Old Lady are currently plagued by personnel worries in this area. Firstly, Manuel Locatelli and Fabio Miretti will be out injured at the weekend.
However, the absence of Paul Pogba and Nicolò Fagioli will keep the Old Lady busy for some time to come. The 22-year-old Fagioli will be absent until the end of May after it came to light that he had made illegal bets with his national team colleagues Tonali and Zaniolo. Meanwhile, it is unclear whether French world champion Pogba will even play soccer again after the 30-year-old tested positive for doping at the start of the season.
Juventus facts & analysis
- In second place in Serie A
- Second best defense in the league
- No home defeat yet this season
Inter Form & Balance Check
In the previous season, Inter Milan were initially not entirely convincing. Coach Simone Inzaghi’s squad spent a long time outside the Champions League places and only made it into the top four towards the end of the season. In the Premier League, however, the Nerazzurri showed all their class and only narrowly lost 1-0 to Manchester City in the final.
This season, however, Inter are back in true championship form. Their only defeat came in a 2-1 defeat against Sassuolo. However, Inter have won all of their last four games in the league. This was also the case before the international break, when they beat Frosinone 2:0. And the Milanese have also already booked their place in the last 16 of the Premier League
Defense stands firm
Inter Milan’s most serious Achilles heel last season was their fragile defense for long stretches. With a total of 42 goals conceded, Milan’s defense was ultimately only the sixth best in the league. In comparison, SSC Napoli conceded 14 fewer goals.
This season, however, the Nerazzurri have presented a completely different picture. Coach Simone Inzaghi can rely completely on his solid defense this season. Inter conceded just six goals in their first twelve games, making them the best defense in the league. One reason for this is the strong performances of keeper Yann Sommer
Inter facts & analysis
- Best defense in Serie A
- Leader of the Serie A table
- Italian Cup winner
Predicted line-up – last update on November 25, 2023
Juventus will once again line up in a 3-5-2 against Inter Milan. However, the Old Lady does not have much choice, especially in midfield. Miretti and Locatelli will be out injured. Nicolò Fagioli and Paul Pogba, on the other hand, will be suspended for quite some time.
Inter Milan will once again play a 3-5-2 formation. We expect former Bundesliga player Yann Sommer to be back in goal. In central defense, however, the Nerazzurri will be missing Alessandro Bastoni and Benjamin Pavard
