Derby d'Italia Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Inter Milan

New, comments

DOWN WITH THE MERDA. DOWN WITH THE MERDA.

Marco Luzzani

There are only so many games that are played against teams you truly hate. People can try and convince you otherwise, but when it comes to true rivals, true hatred, there is only a select few.

In less than 90 minutes, that game will happen.

It's the Derby d'Italia. At the Juventus Stadium. With the chance to push the Serie A unbeaten run to a crisp 50 games.

Man, that sounds fantastic.

So, here we are. Still atop the standings with the most hated team Juventus currently play coming to town. We wait for Inter to get whistled by the Juve tifosi at the stadio. We wait for them to heckled. We wait for Inter to do typical merda nonsense because that's just what they do.

And every single thing will be analyzed for the simple fact of it being Inter Milan vs. Juventus.

It's the Derby that we all circle on the calendar. It's one of the biggest games of the year no matter where and when the fixture takes place. That's just how it is. There's nothing you can do about it!
