Juventus tonight travel to San Siro to play rivals Inter. Memories of last season’s away fixture at San Siro are still fresh in my mind. That night, Juventus took the lead thanks to Mauro German Camoranesi and then added a second thanks to Trezegeut ( or you might say Burdisso). Juve had numerous chances to rout Inter but failed to show the lethal finish. Inter then grabbed a consolation goal in the dying minutes of the game.
This time round, the situation is slightly different. Juventus are in a different position than last year. Just three points away from Inter and in a strong position, having won seven on the trot including two wins against Real Madrid. Del Piero’s revival is seeing Juventus looking one of the major threats in the Serie A and tonight’s match should be a very interesting and exciting one for all football fans.
Juventus and Inter share extreme rivalry between them and this took a great twist during the infamous 5 Maggio 2002. That year, Juve won the scudetto on the last day of the Serie A after Inter lost to Lazio at the same time. The Calciopoli scandal and the title revoked to Inter continued to spur on the hate between both sets of fans. No doubt that Ibrahimovic will get a message from the Juventus Curva as Mourinho heads on his first official match against Juventus. Inter are currently top of the Serie A but it has been Juventus who are currently showing some tremedous potential to lift the scudetto after exiting a ‘crisis’ which slowed their start to the serie A.
