Juventus is the perch in Italian football every team wants to reach. But the dreams are there to be seen and of course to be achieved. But in this case only a select few have the audacity and the means to pull off this imagination into the reality.
Inter Milan being one of those teams.
There is a clear gulf between the Old Lady and their direct rivals. That gap was widened by Juve's capture of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. And with a supremely talented Aaron Ramsey heading to the Juventus Stadium next season as well, the reigning Serie A champions will become even more formidable in the domestic competitions.
That said, Inter are improving as well. They are showing the signs that they are heading into the right direction.
The squad is talented no doubt, but Luciano Spalletti needs a few world class signing to truly challenge the might of Juventus.
In terms of the current scenario, Inter are 3rd in the table and are aiming to finish the season on their current position.
As for Juve, they secured their 8th successive Serie A Championship after beating Fiorentina last weekend.

JUV vs INT Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Mario Mandzukic scored the only goal as Juventus beat Inter Milan 1-0 in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
The Old Lady has a very strong recent record against the 2010 Serie Champions, losing just once in the last 12 league games.
However, that win for Inter came in 2016, a 2-1 win at San Siro.
Inter are in good form heading into this match and a win for them shouldn't come as a surprise. More so because Juve have nothing to play for except pride, while the Nerazzurri are still looking to secure a 3rd place finish.
We back the hosts to avoid a defeat here.
