Roberto Mancini’s men can get title challenge back on track

Italy Soccer Serie A

Inter are back on home turf for the first Derby d’Italia of the term, and this duel with eternal rivals Juve looks set to be a thriller.

Following a fantastic five-game unbeaten streak in Serie A, the Nerazzurri have picked up just one point from their past two matches and need a win here, which is priced at 13/8 with Coral to occur.

With just one loss on their own stomping ground this season, the Milan men will be tough for an inconsistent Old Lady to break down, having kept three clean sheets from four fixtures at the San Siro so far.

Though, with Juve’s formidable firepower, Inter at 10/3 to win to nil again is unlikely. Instead, the Nerazzurri might prove a more prudent punt at 19/4 for victory with both teams to score.

This encounter with the Massimiliano Allegri’s men carries extra weight, as the Turin team need a triumph to propel themselves back into the top half of the table, so are 21/10 to at least nab a draw.

Special odds for Stevan Jovetic to score

Mancini will be relying on his magnificent marksmen to make the difference, and Manchester City-owned Jovetic is available at an enhanced price to prove the decisive dangerman.

Punters can back the striker, who has hit three in five appearances in black and blue, at a fabulous 5/1 to score with Inter to win (maximum stake £20), which seems superb value.

Alternatively, last season’s joint-top Serie A scorer Mauro Icardi is excellent at 11/2 to notch the opener, or at 6/4 to strike anytime, having smashed six past Juve in five career appearances.

As for current champions Juventus (also 13/8 to win), they will have to go for the jugular if they are to close the eight point gap on their bitter rivals.

In-form forwards Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala are the guests’ most likely chances of a goal, at 13/2 and 7/1 to net first and last respectively, with Spanish sharpshooter Morata a previous scorer in this fixture.
