A significant top-of-the-table Sunday clash from the Serie A

Juventus have held themselves quite well even if they may not be one of the best-scoring sides this Serie A season. Their defensive record is only second to the opposition they are up against this Sunday. In the last 7 games, the Bianconeri have kept a massive 6 clean sheets. No doubt they will need this form going up against the best-scoring side in the Italian top tier.

No other team have been so good in front of the net than Inter Milan this term. The Nerazzurri have scored 29 goals so far having played 12 league games. And having the best defensive record should be a boon as they field themselves at the Allianz Stadium this Sunday for the Derby d’Italia against Juventus.

Match Prediction for Juventus vs Inter

This Sunday’s Derby d’Italia clash will provide Juventus an opportunity to displace Inter from the peak. All they need is a win. But given the tenacity of the Inter Milan squad and their desire, it is gonna be a very tough prospect. Both teams have been tough to score against so far after 12 league games. But against each other Inter seemingly should have a better grip in front of the net.

Prediction: Juventus 1-2 Inter
