The Derby d’Italia is one of the fiercest rivalries in Serie A, with the last three editions producing 21 yellow cards and three red cards. Another edition is upon us this weekend, with Juventus hosting their bitter rivals Inter Milan in Turin on the 4th of April, with kickoff time scheduled for 00:15 IST.

A lot is at stake as these heavyweights rekindle their bitter rivalry. Inter Milan have fallen off the pace somewhat in the title race, although they have a game in hand on their rivals. They sit third, one point ahead of Juventus, and this fixture is a battle for the third spot, a title shot, and a potential continental qualification decider.

Teams Status

Take a look at the latest form and squad news from Juventus and Inter Milan:

Juventus FC Form and Team News

Max Allegri’s men have been the most solid performers in the league since the turn of the year and are unbeaten in 16 straight matches, with 11 wins and 5 draws. Their last loss came in November, and their excellent form has put them within touching distance of AC Milan at the top of the table, with a 7-point difference between them.

In 30 matches this season, Juventus have won 17, drawn 8, and lost 5, managing 59 points while scoring 47 goals and conceding 26. The Old Lady are tied with Sassuolo as the most in-form team in the league over the last 5 matches, with 4 wins and 1 draw. January signing Dusan Vlahovic is the league’s top scorer with 21 goals and 3 assists.

For news on injuries and suspensions, Juventus are still without Weston McKennie and Federico Chiesa. They are out with long-term injuries and may not play a part in this season anymore.

Inter Milan Form and Team News

The Nerazzurri travel to Turin on the back of four straight draws away from home, and recently, they have lacked the clinical edge that saw them clinch the title last season. With 1 loss, 3 draws, and 1 win in their last 5 Serie A matches, they have lost ground to Milan and Napoli in the title race (6 points behind Milan, 3 points behind Napoli), although they have a game in hand.

Although they have not been clinical in front of goal lately, they have 17 wins, 9 draws, and 3 losses in 29 games this season, scoring a league-high 62 goals and conceding 24, making them the second-best defense in the league. Lautaro Martinez remains their top scorer with 14 goals and 2 assists.

Inter Milan will be without Stefan de Vrij, who picked up a calf injury recently and will not be on the trip to Turin.

Tipster’s Angle

From the head-to-head record between Juventus and Inter Milan, Juve have 7 wins in the last 13 encounters, with 4 ending in draws and Inter winning twice. The Nerazzurri have struggled to win games recently and will hope to avoid another draw or loss in Turin against a Juventus side that have not lost in the league since November. 

Champions League qualification, the title, and 3rd spot are at stake going into this fixture, and we expect a tight contest between two teams of the highest Serie A quality. Here are our thoughts on the most likely outcomes in this fixture:

Tip: Both Teams To Score @ 1.81

Seven of the last 10 Derby d’Italia matches have ended with both teams finding the back of the net. Inter will be desperate to break their duck, having earned just 1 win in their last 6 matches, while Juventus will hope to preserve their unbeaten run and charge towards the top of the table. Both teams to score is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.81 odds.

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.29

Only once in the last 10 encounters between Juventus and Inter did both teams fail to score at least 2 goals. Inter are the league’s highest-scoring team, and with Vlahovic and Dybala leading the line for Juventus, we expect at least two goals in this encounter. Over 1.5 goals is available on the Sportsbet.io sportsbook at 1.29 odds.


The Italian derby is one of the most anticipated in Serie A, and this edition is no different, with a lot at stake for both teams. We expect a thrilling encounter as both teams are eager to prove their points.
