Inter look to break Juve hoodoo

Inter are looking to overcome a real hoodoo against Juventus in Turin, where they’ve won just once in the last 11 Serie A meetings.

Luciano Spalletti’s side are top of the table, but the Bianconeri will leapfrog them if they take all three points on home turf.

While this match represents the Derby d’Italia, the Nerazzurri actually have a relatively poor record in Turin.

Of the 100 previous meetings between the two sides, the Old Lady has emerged victorious on 66 occasions, with 18 draws and 16 wins for Inter.

The last time the Beneamata won at Juventus Stadium was the 3-1 win in 2012 which ended Juve’s unbeaten run under Antonio Conte at 49 games.

That was their only win in the last 11 meetings in Turin, with seven wins for the Bianconeri and three draws in that time.

Juventus tend to score in this fixture too, having found the back of the net in the last 13 games home and away against Inter for a total of 22 goals.

The last time the Bianconeri failed to score against Inter at home was the 2005 Supercoppa Italiana, in which a 96th-minute Juan Veron goal saw them lose 1-0 in extra-time at the Stadio delle Alpi.

On the reverse side, the Nerazzurri haven’t scored against Juve in Turin in 296 minutes, going back to January 6, 2015.

That match finished in a 1-1 draw, with Carlos Tevez opening the scoring after five minutes and Mauro Icardi equalising after 64.
