The day of the classic arrived. Inter Milan vs Juventus faces TODAY in another edition of the ‘Derby d’Italia’, closing the 27th day of Serie A TIM, from 14:45 hours in Peru and 20:45 Italian time at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium. Learn here how both teams arrive and the relevant data to be able to tune in LIVE.
The Nerazzurri have struggled to catch championship leaders Napoli after losing in two of their last three appearances. If they win, those led by Simone Inzaghi could reduce the points difference with the Neapolitans to 15 points.
The other side of the coin is the ‘bianconeri’ who, after a regular start to the league and the reduction of 15 points due to capital gains, are climbing positions and continue to approach Conference League positions, a product of winning four of the last five games played. Even so, a victory brings it four points short of the last place in European competitions.

It will be a close affair in Milan on Sunday night, and it could go either way, especially with Inter being so inconsistent. It’s fair to say the Nerazzurri were on the knife-edge in their Champions League tie against Porto in the midweek, which may have sapped every ounce of their energy given it was an intense, fiery game and they had to basically defend throughout the game.
It would certainly not be a surprise to see Juventus collect all three points against a legged Inter this weekend, but it is difficult to back against Inter due to their fine home form since the start of the year.
While Juve is looking to be in better shape heading into the game, Inter has only allowed two goals in six home league games this year, and has suffered just one defeat on home turf in 2023. Therefore, The Hard Tackle fancy a 1-1 draw, which both teams would probably take.
Though he missed a penalty in La Spezia last week and failed to find the net against Porto, in 2023, no Serie A player has scored more goals on home soil than Inter’s Lautaro Martinez.
The World Cup winner’s tally of four puts him level with Capocannoniere leader Victor Osimhen and Adrien Rabiot of Juventus; however, he has only scored once before in nine top-flight games against Juve. ‘El Toro’ starts up front at San Siro, joined by either Edin Dzeko or Romelu Lukaku at the apex of Simone Inzaghi’s 3-5-2 formation.
Inzaghi may have to reshuffle his personnel at the back again, as Milan Skriniar suffered a recurrence of an ongoing back problem on Tuesday, while Alessandro Bastoni is now struggling with a muscular injury; Stefan de Vrij or Danilo D’Ambrosio may be called upon to deputize.
Only Lazio have scored more goals via midfielders than Juventus (18) this season, including both in November’s reverse fixture, when Rabiot was on target again. The Frenchman will start once more, but Max Allegri is expected to make a change further forward, as Angel Di Maria should come in for the enigmatic Moise Kean.
With Arkadiusz Milik only just returning from injury, the Argentina star would support Dusan Vlahovic up front, though the latter has played five times at San Siro since moving to Italy without scoring a single goal.
Federico Chiesa should also make an appearance from the bench following his recent comeback, but Paul Pogba and Alex Sandro are both ruled out by thigh injuries.
Inter Milan possible starting lineup:
Onana; Darmian, De Vrij, Acerbi; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Martinez, Lukaku
Juventus possible starting lineup:
Szczesny; Danilo, Bremer, Gatti; De Sciglio, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Di Maria; Vlahovic
