Inter hosts Juventus at the Giuseppe Meazza on October 6, 2019 in Round 7 of the Italian Serie A.
F.C Internazionale or Inter head to this showdown as the soccer betting favorites to beat Lazio. They are coming off a loss to FC Barcelona in the Champions League but in their last Serie A assignment, they took care of business and defeated Sampdoria 3-1 to keep their winning streak intact at six matches.
Alexis Sanches made the most out of his first start for Inter. On loan after a disaster season at Manchester United, the Chile international scored in the 22nd minute by tapping a cross by Stefano Sensi. Sensi and Roberto Gagliardini also scored for Inter who kept their record perfect in the 2019 Serie A season.
Inter rank 1st in the Italian Serie A with a Goal Difference of +11. They have scored a 3rd best total of 13 goals on the current term while conceding a league-best two goals in six matches played so far. Inter is also tied for 3rd in the Italian league with nine assists on the season.
Romelu Lukaku leads Inter with three goals on the season, including the lone goal in their Milan Derby win over AC Milan. Midfielders Stefano Sensi also has three goals with two assists while Marcelo Brozovic has two goals for Inter Milan. Nicolo Barella leads the squad with a pair of assists while Diego Godin has one assist as well.

Juventus Football Club was founded in 1897 by Torinese students. Dubbed as the Old Lady, Juventus has won 35 official league titles, 13 Coppa Italia titles, and a record 8 Supercoppa Italiana titles. La Vecchia Senora has also two Intercontinental Cups, two European Cups/UEFA Champions League, one European Cup Winners Cup, 3 UEFA Cups, two UEFA Super Cups and one Intertoto Cup. This squad has held the UEFA’s top ranking during seven terms since 1979, the most by an Italian team and second most overall. Juventus is the defending Serie A champions.
Juventus ranks 3rd in Goal Difference at +6 goals on the season. They are tied for 4th in the Serie A with a total of 11 goals scored this term and Juve has conceded only five goals this season, 3rd best in the league. They are ranked 8th in passing with a total of six assists in six matches played.
Superstar forward Cristiano Ronaldo leads Juventus with three goals scored plus one assist in five matches played. Miralem Pjanic has two goals in six matches while Gonzalo Higuain has one goal scored this term. Douglas Costa leads Juve with two assists while Paulo Dybala has one assist.
Inter is on top of the Serie A standings with an unblemished 6-0-0 SU record. They have conceded just one goal in their last four Italian league matches played and are playing like the best team in the Serie A.
On the other hand, Juventus is right behind then in second spot. Juve is also unbeaten after six rounds with a record of 5-1-0 SU. They have won three matches in a row after their scoreless draw with Fiorentina. Juventus has allowed just one goal in those three matches and are also playing with terrific form as of late.
Head to head, Juventus has lost just once to Inter in their last 10 matches. Juve has five wins and four ties during that period. That draw came in their most recent meeting last April 27, 2019 when these teams ended up with a 1-1 score at Giuseppe Meazza. I think this is going to be a close match between the top two teams in the Serie A right now. Juventus is coming off a 3-0 win over Bayern Leverkusen in the UEFA Champions League and I think they can be the team that ends Inter’s unbeaten run. With a superstar like Cristiano Ronaldo who has been in too many big games, I’ll take the underdogs in this contest. Prediction: Juventus
