Both Inter Milan and Juventus have plenty to learn from their last five meetings in Serie A ahead of tomorrow’s Derby d’Italia.

Today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInter1908, looks back at the recent history between the Nerazzurri and the Bianconeri.

Inter and Juventus have gotten to know each other very well under coaches Simone Inzaghi and Max Allegri.

In the Coppa Italia last season, it was the Nerazzurri who emerged victorious from a two-legged semifinal tie.

But matches in Serie A always have a different tenor to them.

And they could give some hints to how tomorrow’s massive clash might go.

The first time that Inzaghi and Allegri met in the Derby d’Italia ended 1-1. That match saw Inter get the better of the first half through a Hakan Calhanoglu penalty.

The Turk had been one of the outstanding players on the pitch.

So Calhanoglu’s exit for Roberto Gagliardini proved a pivotal moment, as it allowed Juventus to gain a big foothold in the second half.

The Bianconeri’s pressure paid off in the form of a late penalty to take a point.

It was then Inter who won the next meeting.

The Nerazzurri prevailed by a 1-0 scoreline at the Allianz Stadium. But that match saw Inzaghi’s team have to dig in and suffer. In truth, it had been Juventus who looked far and away the more convincing side.

However, a big defensive performance by Milan Skriniar in particular was enough to see the match go Inter’s way.

What Inter & Juventus Can Learn From Recent Serie A Meetings

If Inter got the better of Juventus in the Coppa Italia last season, it was the Bianconeri who owned the league fixtures.

Allegri guided his team to 2-0 and 1-0 victories in the two Serie A Derby d’Italia matches.

Inter were not able to score across more than three hours of league play against Juventus.

In the first meeting, there weren’t even many chances for the Nerazzurri. In the second, on the other hand, Inter fashioned a few but were profligate in front of goal.

And at the other hand, Juventus used their lethal counterattack to good effect.

Finally, in the most recent meeting between Inter and Juventus, the Derby rivals relied on moments of real quality from their strikers, Lautaro Martinez and Dusan Vlahovic respectively.

Vlahovic opened the scoring during the first half. Then Martinez responded just minutes later.

Other than those two goals, there was little to split the two teams.

Particularly in the second half, as both the Nerazzurri and the Bianconeri were clearly determined above all to avoid losing the match, which became a tense, cagey contest.
