Juan Sebastian Veron always doubts that Inter will win a match and assumes that they need to be more clinical, like Juventus, who he never thinks will lose.
If they beat Juve for the first time since September 2016 in a league match, Inter will leapfrog local rivals Milan and go top of Serie A on Sunday, having drawn two and lost five of their past seven matches.
The side of Andrea Pirlo sits four points behind the Nerazzurri but has a game in hand, so it will place them squarely back in the title race following their victory over Milan in their previous away league game.
However, since 1930-31, they have not defeated both Inter and Milan away from home in the first half of a Serie A season.
Former Inter midfielder Veron admitted that Juve did not play at the same level that saw them win nine straight Scudetti, but he insists that they still have a killer edge missing from the team of Antonio Conte.
“I follow Juve a little bit. I follow Inter more. Juventus must find again what they got in the past years. They felt unbeatable.”
It’s really hard to sustain the same amount for several years. Juve did it. Maybe things have not gone as they expected this year.
Inter have commitments on the other hand. They’re searching for the best way to be a great team again. It’s not easy. In their results and their football, they need to find consistency. They need to play in the right way.
You know when you watch Juve, they’re going to win. You know it’s 50-50 when you watch Inter. To achieve results, they need to be decisive.
“He added: “The first thing about this match for me is the morale boost that it might entail. For sure, that is. After that, you play for points that are also important.
“But [for Inter] being able to win after a long time would be, for a team who needs victories, important for the title race. For me, it’s the most important thing for them.”
