On Sunday, the Bianconeri will make a trip to San Siro to play against Nerazzurri in Italian.

After securing a 1-0 aggregate victory against Porto with a draw in the second leg of the round of 16, Inter has successfully qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League. However, their attention must now shift to Serie A, where they currently sit in second place, one point above Lazio and two points above fourth-placed Milan. It is crucial for them to obtain a favourable outcome in their upcoming match against Juventus, as a draw or loss could potentially cause them to slide down the league table.

Juventus, on the other hand, emerged victorious in the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 ties against Freiburg, winning 2-0 and securing their place in the quarter-finals with a 3-0 aggregate score. In Serie A, they currently sit in seventh place with 38 points, but despite the 15-point deduction, they are still in the running for a spot in European competition. This makes the upcoming match against Inter crucial for Juventus.

Players to watch

Inter Milan: Lautaro Martinez

With 17 goals and 7 assists in all competitions, Martinez has been the most productive scorer for Inter in the current season. As the team gears up for their upcoming match, his performance will be crucial to their success on the field. Inter will heavily rely on his goals and assists to secure a favourable outcome against Juventus and maintain their second position in the league standings. Martinez’s individual contribution will play a vital role in determining the team’s overall performance, and it is highly probable that the team will entrust him with leading their attack and creating opportunities to score.

Juventus: Dusan Vlahovic

This season in Serie A, the forward has netted 8 goals. Additionally, he also found the back of the net during the second leg of the Europa League round of 16 against Freiburg. Looking ahead, he is eager to continue adding to his goal tally when he faces off against Inter Milan in the upcoming match.
