Juventus seeks win against
Inter

Juventus travels to bitter rival Inter Milan on Saturday, hoping Andrea Stramaccioni's team doesn't spoil its Serie A title chances as it did its unbeaten record in November.

Inter won 3-1 to end Juventus' 49-match unbeaten run, just as it seemed Antonio Conte's side was closing in on Milan's record of 58 matches without defeat.

That match remains one of Stramaccioni's top three memories of his year in charge at Inter. The two sides have had differing fortunes since then.

Inter has won only five of its league games since to slip to sixth, while Juventus is now on a seemingly inexorable march toward a 29th title. It is nine points ahead of second-place Napoli, which plays Torino and can't afford to lose touch with the leader.

Elsewhere, Mario Balotelli looks to continue his scoring run when AC Milan travels to Chievo Verona. The Italy striker scored three times in two matches during the international break to take his tally to 10 goals in nine games for club and country in 2013.
