Inter Milan have thrown down the gauntlet to Juventus in Serie A this season but the Bianconeri have a happy knack of rising to the challenge in matches like this.
The visitors will also be buoyed by a smooth Champions League success in midweek, whereas their hosts must recover from a heart-breaking late loss in Barcelona.
We’re sticking with Maurizio Sarri’s side to go top of the table with an away win at 7/4 for our opening Inter Milan vs Juventus prediction.
A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds
Antonio Conte’s arrival has admittedly sparked an upturn in fortunes for Inter, who have started their domestic campaign with six straight victories.
Last month’s 2-0 Milan derby triumph and a 1-0 win over Lazio stand out as the pick of their performances, which have seen 13 goals scored and only two conceded.
Romelu Lukaku has justified the money spent on him, loan star Stefano Sensi has been another fine addition and bringing in the experience of Diego Godin has helped to shore things up at the back.
However, Slavia Prague picked up a point at the San Siro in the Champions League and Inter couldn’t capitalise on Lautaro Martinez’s early opener when beaten 2-1 by Barca at the Nou Camp, so they still have a bit to prove at elite level.
Lukaku missed that trip to Spain with a muscle injury, having only started on the bench for last weekend’s 3-1 win at Sampdoria, so he may still not be fully fit.
Alexis Sanchez is suspended after scoring and then being sent off at Sampdoria, so some cracks may already be beginning to appear in Inter’s overdue title aspirations ahead of this acid test.
Looking at the Inter Milan vs Juventus odds, we reckon 9/10 for the visitors to prevail in the ‘draw no bet’ market is another tempting option.
A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds
Several of Juve’s early efforts under Sarri have been merely workmanlike but they have only dropped two Serie A points, via a goalless stalemate at Fiorentina.
The Old Lady needed help from a stoppage-time own goal to claim a thrilling 4-3 success over Napoli, but that result was yet another example of how this team always seems to come out on top when it matters most.
A run of eight straight title triumphs has created an aura of invincibility around the Turin club and they will go into this clash in great heart.
Late strikes from Cristiano Ronaldo helped to wrap up last weekend’s 2-0 defeat of Spal and Tuesday’s 3-0 demolition of Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League.
Juve also impressed in a 2-2 draw at Atletico Madrid in Europe’s elite club competition, so the pedigree is still there to get fired up for the important fixtures.
Ronaldo always warrants respect in the first goalscorer market, but Miralem Pjanic has taken on a more prominent role under Sarri and is catching the eye from midfield.
The Bosnian has netted in his last two Serie A appearances and is a value pick at 14/1 to break the deadlock in our Inter Milan vs Juventus betting tips.
