Inter Milan vs Juventus 2016 Preview And Prediction

Inter Milan vs Juventus 2016 Preview And Prediction
What can be said about Juventus. In Serie A they are an unstoppable dynasty and are looking to make it 5 consecutive Scudettos. After making significant improvements to their squad, Inter Milan has their eye set on the champions league spots this year.

Looks like more of the same this year. Juventus appear to have a lock on the Serie A for the 5th straight season and quite frankly they are a bettors best friend in Italy. They are a rock. You can throw them in almost any parlay to bring down your odds or bet them straight up and count your winnings.

Lets look at the odds for this weekend’s clash with Inter Milan, a former heavyweight looking to knock out the reigning, defending, undisputed Champions.

Juventus and Inter have both made significant additions to their squad.

Most notably, the Old lady made huge profits from the sale of Paul Pogba and spent those earnings on Gonzalo Higuain, Miralem Pjanic, Mehdi Benetia and also reacquired Juan Cuadrado on loan. Now do you want to hear the crazy part: Those 4 players I just listed would start for every other Serie A team on a regular basis. Juventus is so deep that even without these 4 players, their squad would still be good enough to win Serie A.

Inter Milan got the deal of summer, when Ever Benega signed for them on a free transfer. Add to that Euro winner Joao Mario, another high quality 2 way midfielder and this team has some pieces and can become a respectable outfit

Inter Milan vs Juventus betting prediction

At even money to win, if you were to take Juventus to win outright no one could blame you. Juventus have earned the right to be bought at even money whenever you are so fortunate to get that line. I however see this game in a slighty different vain.


Both teams had games in Europe mid week. Juventus lacked the killer touch and wound up drawing nil-nil with Sevilla, while Inter Milan played their B squad against Israeli minnows, Hapoel Be’er Sheva, in anticipation of Sunday’s tilt, and promptly lost 2-0. Neither team could score at home as heavy favorites.

So far in 3 games this season Inter Milan have had the lead for a grand total of less than 5 minutes. This is their toughest opponent of the season and it comes at a time when they have yet to find their scoring form. It is not far fetched to envision them playing with a solid back line, crowd the midfield and leave Icardi isolated up top. Basically play for a draw and get a well deserved point. Last season this fixture was also scheduled early in the slate and ended 0-0.

So far Juventus has played 1 game away from Turin and Inter have played once at the San Siro and both games went under 2.5, albeit it’s a small sample size and too early to get a read off of that alone. So lets examine their recent history.

My Team's Next MatchInter Milan

How did they match up last season?

In 4 meetings last season, in all competitions, every game had a clean sheet. Each team won 3-0 once, Juventus won another 2-0 and as mentioned above their first encounter was a goalless draw. 

With that in mind there are many smart places to invest some capital this Sunday. The under 2.5 and Juventus to win are both very respectable. You can also look into both teams to score NO. Basically if you think this game will follow the trend of their recent history you should feel good with any or all of these plays.
