Former Inter and current Italy head coach Roberto Mancini expects that Inter’s Serie A clash with Juventus tomorrow will be a high-quality match but that it will not be decisive for either team’s season.

The Azzurri boss gave his thoughts on the upcoming head-to-head clash while attending the Premio Colaucci event, as reported by FCInterNews, and he also gave the view that Nerazzurri boss Simone Inzaghi needs more time to fully shape the team in his image.

Inter host the Bianconeri at the San Siro tomorrow in a significant Derby d’Italia, considered to be one of the biggest matches in Italian football.

This season neither team come into the match in the top two places in Serie A, with the Nerazzurri having fallen behind rivals Napoli and AC Milan further with last weekend’s loss to Lazio and the Bianconeri still recovering from a poor start which saw them lose ground to their rivals at the top end of the table.

Mancini anticipates that the match will be good but that it is too early in the season to see whether it will have major ramifications in Serie A.

“It will be a good match,” he predicted, “I don’t think it will be decisive because we are at the beginning. Juve is catching up and must try to win. Inter will play their game, they could get any result.”

On the competition of Inter midfielder Nicolo Barella and his Juventus counterpart Manuel Locatelli in the national team, Mancini stated that “They are two good and young players. They have their future in their hands, they will have the future of their teams and that of the national team in their hands for years, it is a pleasure to have them play at this level.”

On his own experiences of the Juventus clash while Inter coach he stated, “Well, Juve-Inter has always been an important match in Italy, not only when I was coaching the Nerazzurri, even before. They are two teams who have made football history.”

And on Inzaghi he stated that “He has been there for three months, I think he needs time to settle in, Inter are not such a simple club. When you have to win all your matches it is not simple to succeed, I think we have to see him settle in but I think he’s done a good job.”
