Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Giuseppe Meazza will be the centre of attention when Inter and Juventus square off against each other in the Serie A derby on Sunday evening. The Nerazzurri are on a five-game winning run in all competitions, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for Simone Inzaghi and Co. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Lautaro Martinez, who sealed the victory against Fiorentina, while Juan Cuadrado remains on the sidelines with an Achilles tendon injury.
The Bianconeri, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Empoli, but it has to be noted that Arkadiusz Milik was sent off after just 15 minutes. The Poland forward misses Sunday’s derby through suspension, while both Adrien Rabiot and Federico Chiesa are facing the race against clock to be fit for the match. Anyhow, a low-scoring encounter is on the cards as both sides are likely to adopt a cautious approach in the Derby d’Italia.
