This article reveals all as our football writers preview the action, highlighting the form, head-to-head stats, and how the traders see this one going. We even offer our predictions on the match, explaining which side we’re backing and how they are expected to earn the three points. There’s plenty to get through as we prepare for one of the season’s most important games. Let’s get started.

Milan returns home

Inter Milan and Juventus are no strangers to meeting in crucial league and cup games, but it has been a while since Inter has enjoyed the home advantage. In their last four against the Old Lady, Milan has been playing away from home in Turin or at a neutral venue in the cup. The players and fans will enjoy an overdue return to home comforts, and if they can make it count, it will have a positive impact on their season. Milan is currently second in the league behind runaway leaders Napoli.

Milan last hosted Juventus in October 2021 when the pair played out a tense 1-1 draw at the Giuseppe Meazza. An early Edin Dzeko goal gave Milan the lead that day, but they were pulled back by a dogged and determined Juve, who netted an equaliser with 89 minutes on the clock. That was tough for fans, and they’ll be hoping their team shows a higher concentration level on Sunday. Will they get their wish?

Milan arrives for this game on the back of an unconvincing run of form. They have won only two of their last five, losing two and drawing the spare. That slip allowed Napoli to pull further clear with four wins and a loss in the same period. The highflyers from Naples are 18 points cleat and counting down the days until they get their hands on the title. Victory for Inter Milan on Sunday will delay the party a while longer.

Don’t call it a comeback

Juventus fans watched in horror as their side slumped down the table, surrendering their Serie A title and failing to challenge in the seasons since. They suffered another slow start to this campaign and ended 2022 with more questions than answers. It’s now evident that Juventus won’t win the league title this season due to their poor form and the incredible run of Napoli. The best they can hope for is a top-four finish and a return to Champions League football next season. Even that will take work.

Approaching Sunday’s trip to Milan, Juventus is stuck in seventh place with 38 points on the board. That’s a poor return when we remember league leaders Napoli have amassed 68 points already and will push hard to get as close to 100 points as possible. It’s a shock to see them so low in the table, but the Old Lady does appear to be fighting back. Don’t call it a comeback. Juve and their fans are desperate to climb into the prize places. A win away from home over the second-best team in the land would help.


Juventus board the team bus for the trip to Milan with their recent from showing four wins and a loss in their last five. They also collected maximum points last time, beating Sampdoria 4-2 at home. That was a reminder of what this team can achieve on their day. But their days are few and far between at present. A strong finish to the season is essential if Juventus finishes in the top four and gets fans back onside ahead of the next season.

Inter Milan v Juventus prediction

Inter Milan holds the home advantage and is higher in the league table than their opponents. But Juventus have been in better form of the two, collecting 12 of the last 15 points available, while Milan has raked in only seven points in that five-game period.

The most recent game involving Inter and Juve was played in early November, with Juventus winning 2-0 at home thanks to goals from Rabiot and Fagioli. That was the second game in three where one team failed to find the net.
