Juventus Vs Inter Milan (Derby D’italia): Can Pragmatist Allegri Tame The League Leaders?

  Administrator November 26, 2023

The Derby d’Italia consistently stands out as a pivotal event in the Italian football calendar, particularly when the competition for the Scudetto intensifies between Inter and Juventus. Presently, Inter holds a slender two-point lead, heightening the anticipation of a closely contested title race destined to extend until the final moments. Both teams have displayed impeccable form in their last four league matches, while their pursuers have faltered.

Given the dominant performances of Inter and Juventus this season, it's evident that clashes between these two giants, even at this early stage, could significantly influence the outcome of the championship in May. Aware of the crucial match at the San Siro in the season's closing weeks, Juventus aims to capitalize on the advantage of hosting the game at the Allianz Stadium.

Under the strategic guidance of Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus has managed to keep pace with Inter so far. However, the extent to which they can maintain this proximity remains uncertain. Inter's impressive goal difference of +23, compared to Juventus' +12, and the stellar performance of their new goalkeeper, Yann Sommer, with eight clean sheets in 12 games, suggest that Inter might be a stronger side than their modest two-point lead implies.

While Inter's rhythm could be disrupted by a Juventus victory, the Turin side, with their capability, could introduce an element of unpredictability into the competition. Even in a scenario where there's seemingly nothing at stake, the fierce passion between players on both teams in this monumental derby promises an electrifying clash on Sunday evening.

Can pragmatist Allegri control the pace against the league leaders?

Juventus has maintained a disciplined approach this season, characteristic of an Allegri-coached team. In just four of their 12 Serie A fixtures, three or more goals were scored. Moreover, Juventus scored more than one goal in only a single instance within their last four league matches – a 2-1 victory over Cagliari before the international break.

While they faced a setback against Atalanta in Bergamo, where they were held scoreless with a meager 0.2 xG, concerns about their attacking prowess were addressed after Allegri's tactical shift to a 3-5-2 formation. Since then, Juventus has found the net in five consecutive games, conceding only once.

Inter's defensive prowess is equally notable, securing eight clean sheets in 12 matches. However, their proficiency in scoring has outshone their Turin counterparts. Notably, they have convincingly defeated Fiorentina and Milan at home this season, with scores of 4-0 and 5-1, showcasing resilience against formidable opponents.

Inter has yet to be held scoreless in any game across all competitions this season and has scored at least twice in nine of their 12 Serie A outings. Despite Juventus' defensive strength, it would be surprising if Inter failed to score, especially with the formidable Lautaro Martinez, who has already bagged 12 goals in the league alone.

Given the defensive capabilities of both teams, both teams' score market presents significant value. While each side is capable of shutting out their opponent, we anticipate Juventus finding the net at least once at home, and Inter, with their offensive prowess, capable of making a substantial impact. This might not result in the highest-scoring match, but the likelihood of goals from both sides is substantial.
