The first Derby d’Italia of the season gets underway on Sunday at the San Siro as Inter Milan host rivals Juventus in Serie A.

Inter are currently in third place on the table with 17 points, three more than their opponents who are in seventh place.

Juventus are looking to make it five wins from five in the Italian top flight but it will not be an easy ask against an Inter who’s 23 goals are the most by any side this season.
