Derby d’Italia! The league match between Inter Milan and Juventus ended in a 1-1 draw. The Old Lady got a penalty in the 89th minute after a VAR check on the foul by Dumfries on Alex Sandro. It was a flat match in most of the minutes as both teams performed at a below-par level. The fans were expecting a fierce game at San Siro. But there was no drama in the game as we witnessed in the past when the two teams met. It was a slow, dull Derby d’Italia. But the goal from Dybala was crucial for Juventus betting.

After the draw, Inter Milan will be more disappointed because they had the slight upper hand in the game for almost 70%. Keeping that advantage and throwing it away in the 89th minute is equal to a loss. They dropped two precious points.

Juventus will be delighted that they are still on their unbeaten strike under Allegri. After a disappointing start in Serie A, the team is under reconstruction. Before the game, Juventus were on an eight-game unbeaten streak in all competitions. Against Inter, they had the main challenge to keep this streak alive. But Edin Dzeko’s goal in the 17th minute, they started to worry about the streak. The goal ended Juve’s 384 minutes of a clean sheet streak. But, luckily the VAR check on a possible penalty saved them. Dybala took the penalty and gave an essential point to the Old Lady. Dybala returning to the squad and scoring a goal will boost the confidence massively.

Juventus will have more positives from the game than Inter Milan. They had more possession, and the total shots and total shots on target were also more for the away side. They were also able to keep their unbeaten streak. The return of Dybala will be a massive relief for Allegri as he can help the team score more goals. Juve started the game without their star player Federico Chiesa in the starting line-up. It was a shock for the fans to see Dejan Kulusevski in the first XI. But when Chiesa was introduced as a sub in the 65th minute, Juventus became more active with the ball. Allegri also decided to give a chance to Dybala along with Chiesa. This decision helped the team to sharpen the attacking.

Inter Milan are currently sitting third in the Serie A table with 18 points, and Juve climbed to 6th. But there is only a difference of three points between them, and all the matches will be decisive to keep the lead and the race for the title race wide open.
