Legendary former Inter goalkeeper Walter Zenga feels that this evening’s Serie A clash between Inter and Juventus will be totally evenly balanced.
Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, Zenga suggested that neither side are favourites and also named Marcelo Brozovic as the Nerazzurri’s key man for the match.
Inter will have their toughest opposition for the rest of the season in front of them at the Allianz Stadium, at least on paper, and they will know that three points will be a very difficult result to get,
The same can be said of the Bianconeri, however, as even with the Nerazzurri’s dip in form in the weeks going into the break they are still one of Serie A’s most formidable team.
For this reason, and depending on the kinds of tactics employed by the teams, it could well be the case that the match is a very tight one in which neither side really takes control to win.
“Tonight could end in a draw,” Zenga said. “I don’t see either team as favourites. By winning, Inter would put pressure on Milan, but on the other side they face Vlahovic, someone who would make a difference in any team.”
He also named Marcelo Brozovic as the decisive player for Inter, stating that “Any Plan B without him would be tricky.”
“Usually these matches are decided by the players who score, but Inter are not Juve,” he added, “they don’t have a Vlahovic who can light up the game and score goals in all kinds of ways.”
