Inter Milan vs Juventus Prediction

Inter Milan have nine wins in their last 10 games, with their only loss coming to Real Madrid in the Champions League. They last faced a defeat against an Italian opponent in October and are unbeaten at the San Siro since September.

Juventus are also unbeaten in their last eight games across all competitions but will be without key players heading into this game. The encounter between the two sides always makes for an interesting watch and with both of them in great form, it is expected to be a closely contested affair.

We predict the Nerazzurri will overcome the Bianconeri, with Calhanoglu and Dzeko expected to play a major role here.

Prediction: Inter Milan 2-1 Juventus
