Juventus vs Inter Milan
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 15 May 2021
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium.
Juventus have never been under this kind of pressure in possibly a decade. They need this win to ensure their CL ticket, and they are pitted against the newly-crowned champions, Inter. The in-form title-holders will smartly take advantage of Juve’s desperation.
As of now, Andrea Pirlo’s men are placed fifth in the table, and have just two games remaining to break into the top-four, and thus secure a CL spot.
However, the fourth-placed Napoli have two easy matches remaining, and the second-placed Atalanta, as well as the third-placed AC Milan need just one win from their last two games to finish in the top-four, as they have a better h2h record against the Old Lady.
Thus Pirlo’s men are in spot of bother, as they are depending on the results of other teams in these final days of the season, to take part in the Champions League. And note – for Cristiano Ronaldo, there would be no bigger failure than this.
Surely the Old Lady are going after a win. But Antonio Conte’s men are in spectacular form, and they would love nothing more than piling on the misery of Pirlo’s men.
Inter have the luxury of playing without pressure, and this will in all probability work in their favor.
Expect a heartbreak for Cristiano, and a win for Inter.

Juventus vs Inter Milan Prediction
Juve recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Sassuolo. In the meantime, Inter registered a 3-1 win at home against Roma.
Going on, Pirlo’s men were winless in five of their last ten overall games, and they had lost their latest appearance at home 0-3 against AC Milan.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a four-fixture winning streak, and were unbeaten in 32 of their past 34 overall matches. Note that they had also won 13 of their last 15 fixtures as well.
Considering this form, the struggles as well as the desperation of Juve, expect Inter to have the upper hand this weekend.
Still, this is a do-or-die game for the Old Lady, and we can count on them to find the back of the net at least once at their home.
