Serie A is back in action with a massive fixture this weekend as Juventus take on Inter Milan on Sunday. The two Italian giants have been inconsistent in recent weeks and will need to prove a point this weekend.
Juventus are in fourth place in the Serie A standings and have managed to improve under Massimiliano Allegri. The Bianconeri eased past Salernitana by a 2-0 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.
Inter Milan, on the other hand, are in third place in the league table at the moment and have fallen off the pace in the title race. The Nerazzurri were held to a 1-1 draw by Fiorentina last month and will need to take it up a notch in this match.
Juventus vs Inter Milan Head-to-Head
Juventus have an impressive record in the Derby d'Italia and have won 110 out of 243 matches played between the two teams. Inter Milan have managed 73 victories against Juventus and will need to cut the deficit on Sunday.
The previous meeting between the two Serie A behemoths took place in January this year and ended in a 2-1 victory for Inter Milan. Juventus were outplayed on the day and have a point to prove this weekend.
