Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Juventus will be looking to keep their Champions League hopes alive when they take face Inter in the Serie A derby. The Bianconeri picked up vital three points from the Sassuolo game, but they face yet another must-win situation against Inter. Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored his 28th goal of the season in the midweek triumph, will be the man to watch in the home team, and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
The Nerazzurri, on the other hand, aim to put icing on the cake on a very successful season. Inter will give 100% to spoil Juve’s party at Allianz Stadium, but seeing that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Andrea Pirlo’s troops. There are no absentees in the home team, while Aleksandar Kolarov and Arturo Vidal remain in Inter’s recovery room.

Cristiano Ronaldo is considered one of the world’s best football players.

Highlighted Team (Inter):
Internazionale Milano, known as Internazionale, Inter or Inter named Milan, is a football club from Italy, founded on March 9, 1908 by a number of "rebels" who did not like in the regulations of the Milan Cricket and Football Club, now known as AC Milan. The main objection was that no foreign players were allowed. In 1928 the club merged with US Milanese and strongly entered a time when Ambrosiana-Inter survived.
The club, nicknamed the Nerazzurri or the blue / blacks has had many successes. This is how Inter Milan won 18 national titles, seven times the Italian Cup, the UEFA Cup 3x, and 3x times the Champions League, formerly known as the European Cup I.
