    JUVE STATS

    Juventus are fourth in the Serie A table, with a game in hand, and are just seven points away from the top.

    Juve have won nine out of a total of 16 matches in the league this season and only lost once to Fiorentina last month.

    The Bianconeri have only managed to score 35 goals throughout the campaign, which is the worst return out of the entire top five.

    However, the defending Italian champions have the joint best defence in the Serie A as they have only conceded 16 goals – a record they share with Napoli

    INTER STATS

    Inter Milan are second in the Serie A table with only three points separating them from rivals AC Milan at the top.

    Inter have won 11 out of a total of 17 matches in the league and only lost twice to Sampdoria and Milan.

    The Nerazzurri have the best attack in all of Italy as they have scored a whopping 43 goals throughout the season but possess the second worst defence out of the top six having conceded 23 goals – six less than Roma.

    Nevertheless, Antonio Conte's men have been rather consistent throughout the campaign as they enjoyed an eight-match-long winning streak in the Serie A before last week's loss to Sampdoria

    HEAD TO HEAD

    Juventus and Inter Milan's first ever meeting took place in 1923, a year after the fascist coup d'etat in Italy placed dictator Benito Mussolini in charge – Juve won 2-0 that day in Turin.

    Since then, the two Italian giants have faced off a total of 224 times with the Vecchia Signora counting 105 victories compared to Inter's 64.

    The defending Italian champions haven't lost to the Milan giants since 2016 when tonight's hosts won 2-1 at the San Siro thanks to goals by Mauro Icardi and Ivan Perisic, who cancelled out Stefan Lichtsteiner's opener.

    After that night, Juventus won five out of their total seven matches in the Serie A – the two sides haven't met in Europe or the Coppa Italia throughout that period

    GOOD EVENING FROM MILAN

    Welcome to our live coverage of the crunch Serie A clash between Inter Milan and Juventus at the San Siro.

    The first Derby d'Italia of the season promises immense intensity and excitement as Juve are only four points away from second-placed Inter in the table and seven away from high-flying AC Milan with a game in hand.

    But the defending Italian champions' work won't be easy as Nerazzurri manager Antonio Conte's squad is nearly at full strength.

    Conte will only be missing the injured Danilo D'Ambrosio (knee), Andrea Pinamonti (ankle) and Matias Vecino (knee).

    The former Juventus boss is likely to field the hosts in his trusted 3-5-2 formation with ex-Manchester United ace Ashley Young starting on the left wing-back position ahead of Ivan Perisic and Marcelo Brozovic replacing former Tottenham star Christian Eriksen, who has been linked with a return to Spurs this month.

    Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo is dealing with a defensive crisis as he will be missing Alex Sandro, Juan Cuadrado and Matthijs de Ligt as they all tested positive for COVID-19.

    Pirlo will also be without Paulo Dybala, who is nursing a knee injury and is not expected to be back before the end of the month.

    Even though Juve are missing key players in defence they are still spoilt for choice in midfield as Arthur, Adrien Rabiot, Rodrigo Bentancur, Weston McKennie, Federico Chiesa and Dejan Kulusevski are all available for selection.
