Inter-Juventus, the Italian derby, closes the 27th day
Inter-Juventus is the Serie A game, it is the most played game in the history of the highest Italian championship, it is no coincidence that it is called the Italian derby par excellence. For Inter it is a pride to be the only Italian never to be relegated once, unlike Juventus who paid the one in Serie B for the 2006/07 season and after a year together with Rejas Napoli and Genoa returned from Gasperini. All three into Serie A without going through the specter of the playoffs. Now the scenario is very different, with Inter having to recover from what has been a near-disastrous away streak so far, while Juventus travel to Milan to defend second in the table, which they practically hold.
Inter-Juventus, a certain statistic favors the guests
In the last thirty years, when Juventus beat Inter in the first leg and then lost to Milan in Milan – as they did this season – Juventus have beaten Inter four times seven times at the Meazza, always winning 2-1. This season the first leg ended 2-0 (Rabiot and Fagioli) and against Milan at San Siro (2-0 with Tomori and Diaz). It all started in the 1995/96 season with Milan 2-1 at home against Juventus (Simone, Weah and Del Piero), then Juventus 1-0 at home against Inter (Vialli) and Juventus 2-1 in San Siro against the Nerazzurri (Lombardo, Conte and Ganz). 1999/00 Juventus 1-0 Inter (F.Inzaghi) and Milan 2-0 Juventus (with Shevchenko brace).
Inter-Juventus, two Nerazzurri wins and a draw in thirty years
This season Inter-Juventus finished 1-2 (with braces from Kovacevic and Seedorf). 2002/03 Inter-Juventus 1-1 (Del Piero on penalties and Vieri), Juventus 3-0 (own goal by Guly, Nedved and Camoranesi) and Milan 2-1 against Juventus at home (Shevchenko, Nedved and F.Inzaghi ). 2005/06: Juventus 2-0 Inter (Trezeguet and Nedved), Milan 3-1 Juventus (Seedorf, Kakà, Pirlo and Trezeguet) and 1-2 Inter-Juventus (Ibrahimovic, Samuel and Del Piero). 2009/10: Juventus 2-1 Inter (Chiellini, Eto’o and Marchisio), 2-0 Inter-Juventus (Maicon and Eto’o) and Milan 3-0 Juventus (Antonini and two goals from Ronaldinho). 2016/17: Inter-Juventus 2-1 (Lichsteiner, Icardi and Perisic) and Milan-Juventus 1-0 (Locatelli).
Inter Juventus, who will try to win?
In 2016/17, Juventus-Inter ended 1-0 with a goal from Cuadrado. The penultimate time that Juventus won against Inter at home and lost to AC Milan in Milan – before this season – happened in 2019/20: Inter 1-2 Juventus (Dybala, Martinez penalties and Higuain) , Juventus-Inter 2-0 ( Ramsey and Dybala) and Milan-Juventus 4-2 (Rabiot, Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic from the penalty spot, Kessié, Leao and Rebic). So if you sum up the three decades, it ended with two Nerazzurri wins, one draw and four Bianconeri wins. Neither team seems better than the other at the moment, but Inter have built the league at home so far and Juventus will always be a tough nut to crack.
