Inter Milan will be hosting Juventus this weekend in the first derby of this Serie A campaign. The match is expected to be tightly contested with the visiting side being slightly more favored to win.

Inter is a team that is strong in every position, but they are susceptible mostly in their own third. This is a team that likes to play attacking soccer against all opponents. If they decide to play like this, they will score, but they will also face some struggles against the likes of the powerhouse of Juventus.

Juve just won the last two Serie A titles and did so deservedly. Signing Andrea Pirlo made their job easier as the legendary veteran central midfielder has contributed greatly and precisely to this team with his goals, assists, ball control and knowledge of the game and the league as well.

New strikers Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez will face their toughest test yet as players for the club based out of Turin. If they have good games, their futures will be bright for the Italian side.

Inter will be heavily relying on Rodrigo Palacio and Ricky Alvarez to lead the attack. Both guys realize that the pressure is on their shoulders to lead this team to wins. If they somehow connect against Juve to success, they can earn a huge victory over the reigning champs to send out a message to the rest of the contenders.

This is going to be a great game to watch. It will live on BeinSport USA this Saturday at 12:00 p.m. EDT.
