Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Inter Milan

Paolo Bruno

Inter Milan's lone trip to Juventus Stadium is a match that a good number of Juventini circle on their calendars no matter what time of year it is. There's the rivalry, and then there's just the pure hatred towards the club that is black and blue and evil all over.

Or that's what I like to assume that.

Juventus hosting Inter will be a battle. It's a derby in every sense of the word. Things could be more jumbled at the top of the Serie A standings by the time both teams take the field at Juventus Stadium. Roma could be three points closer to Juve, they could be one point closer, or they could just be stuck at six points. We'll see. And we'll know by the time this post goes up. (Advanced post is scheduled in advance.)

The most important thing in all of this? It's a #JuveDay — and hopefully a happy one.

I could go on about how important this game really is, but I won't. You're here, you know it. You'll watch, hopefully cheering as much as humanly possible. Nobody wants a sad thread, right? On with the show.

Amen to that, Claudio.

Here are the predicted lineups for tonight's showdown in Turin. What say you?

We'll see if these predicted lineups are the truth. Something tells me that Juventus one is pretty much right on the money. So if you want to put money on it being different, I'm not sure that's such a good idea. That's just me, though.


Juventus XI (3-5-2): Storari; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Lichtsteiner, Vidal, Pirlo, Pogba, Asamoah; Tevez, Llorente

Juventus bench: Rubinho, Vannucchi, Ogbonna, Caceres, Peluso, Padoin, Marchisio, Pepe, Isla, Vucinic, Giovinco
