Juventus vs Inter Milan betting preview and match odds
Juventus has finally managed to link two consecutive victories after their recent struggle in both Serie A and Coppa Italia. Juve has recently seen just one victory in four competitive games, but they now head into this tie on the back of two consecutive wins against Brescia and SPAL. They haven’t played such an exciting football lately, but it was enough to secure six points in two matches ahead of this exciting clash with Inter Milan. Juventus currently sit at the top of the Serie A table with 60 points to their name, but they have played one game more than their league followers Lazio and Inter.
Although Vecchia Signora has been a bit inconsistent of late, they still managed to keep their superb home form intact. Maurizio Sarri’s men have won each of their last six home games across all competitions while scoring 18 goals in the process. In addition, Juve should feel confident ahead of this tie as they have already beat Inter once this season, which was a narrow 1-2 away victory in the first part of the season.
Juventus’ star Cristiano Ronaldo didn't score in that game, but he will definitely look to help his team with some goals on Sunday. Ronaldo is the league’s second top-scorer with 21 goals under his belt and has scored at least once in each of his last eleven appearances for Juventus in the Serie A. Juventus are the bookies’ favorites ahead of this clash, with the odds being set at +118 at William Hill Sportsbook.
Meanwhile, Inter’s home match against Sampdoria, which was supposed to be played this Sunday has been postponed due to the Coronavirus epidemic in the Lombardy and Veneto regions. This means that Inter will be a bit fresher than Juventus ahead of this clash, although they still need to play the second leg against Ludogorets in the Europa League. Inter did well to secure a 0-2 victory in Bulgaria this Thursday, but now their encounter with Ludogorets at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza is in doubt due to the Coronavirus scare.
With one game in hand now, Inter finds themselves in third place in the Serie A standings, two points behind Lazio who also need to play this weekend, and six behind their next Sunday’s opponents, Juventus. This is a crucial game for Antonio Conte’s men, especially after their recent defeat in the Serie A at the hands of rivals Lazio.
The good news is that Inter has been a solid team on the road over the past couple of months, having suffered just one defeat in their last eight competitive trips. A player to watch for Inter will be Romelul Lukaku, as the Belgian striker has been in red-hot form this season, helping his team with 17 goals and two assists. Inter’s price ahead of this trip to Juventus is huge, as the odds for a Nerazzurri victory is +245 at William Hill Sportsbook.

Juventus vs Inter Milan betting predictions and tips
As we mentioned above, this game could play a pivotal role in the Scudetto battle. Juventus haven’t had problems at all in winning the title over the past few years, but things look a bit different this year. Inter are playing much better football since the arrival of Antonio Conte and they have a stronger team in comparison with the previous years.
On the flip side, Juventus aren’t playing extraordinary at the moment, but they are a pragmatic team and that’s why they managed to collect that many points this season. In addition, they have been carried by Cristiano Ronaldo so far this season, but that’s because of the tactical changes Sarri did to pass most of the balls to the Portuguese star.
Another interesting duel will be the one between Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku, as both players have enjoyed an excellent campaign so far this season. These two players have scored 38 goals between them so far this season, so we expect an exciting clash. Our betting tips and predictions ahead of this game are:
