Juventus vs. Inter Milan: A look back at the 7 previous Derby d'Italias

Claudio Villa

In honour of the upcoming Derby d'Italia between Inter Milan and Juventus, let's look at the seven previous contests between these two sides. Hint: Since Jose Mourinho left, it's unhappy viewing for Nerazzurri supporters, who've seen their side struggle mightily against the Old Lady in the wake of their treble in 2009/10. And no, the preseason game this summer doesn't count.


December 5th, 2009: Stadio Olimpico di Torino

Even with Jose Mourinho in charge, in a season in which Inter won the Scudetto, the Coppa Italia and a little trinket known as the 'European Cup', his side still had problems with Juventus, who ultimately finished in third place. In the first Derby d'Italia of the 2009/10 season, the Nerazzurri were downed 2-1 thanks to an own goal by Lucio and then an excellent Claudio Marchisio strike just before the hour mark:

January 28, 2010: San Siro

Mourinho's all-conquering brigade got some measure of revenge on the Old Lady, reversing their league defeat with a 2-1 triumph in the Coppa Italia quarterfinal. Diego gave the visitors an early lead thanks to an error by Franceso Toldo, however, and it took a 71st-minute goal from Lucio and a late Mario Balotelli (yeah, that guy) tap-in to see Inter though

April 16th, 2010: San Siro

Perhaps more focused on their now-legendary upcoming Champions League semifinal against Barcelona, Inter took their time in breaking down Juventus despite the visitors seeing Mohamed Sissoko sent off 37 minutes in for a foul on Javier Zanetti. It was Maicon who finally got the league leaders on the scoresheet late in the second half, juggling the ball at the edge of the area before sending a cracking volley past Gianluigi Buffon to make it 1-0. Samuel Eto'o put some gloss on the victory with an easy finish in stoppage time.


October 3rd, 2010: San Siro

After winning the treble, Jose Mourinho dashed off to Real Madrid, and Inter suffered for it. Their first post-Mourinho Derby d'Italia was a 0-0 draw in which both sides had plenty of chances but the closest either came to winning it was Vincenzo Iaquinta's offside tap-in, easily spotted as illegal by the linesman. You can tell this match was strange because it features Milas Krasic playing well.

February 13th, 2011: Stadio Olimpico di Torino

Alessandro Matri grabbed the winner for Juventus in a 1-0 match that's probably best remembered for the ludicrous miss produced by Samuel Eto'o in the 89th minute, wasting the opportunity to grab a precious point in Turin. It was probably a lost cause anyway -- AC Milan were well on their way to claiming the scudetto.


October 29th 2011: San Siro

Inter's rather epic implosion was well underway by October 2011, and Juventus made it even worse with a 2-1 win at the San Siro. Mirko Vucinic slammed home a rebound in the 12th minute after Luca Castellazzi had blocked Alessandro Matri's initial effort, and although the hosts equalised through a brilliant Maicon strike just before the half hour mark, Claudio Marchisio almost-immediately put the eventual champions back in front.

March 25th, 2012: Juventus Stadium

By this point it was clear that Juventus were the class of Serie A and that Inter Milan probably were not. A home match against the Nerazzurri was no longer something that the Old Lady particularly feared, and they dispatched their opponents 2-0 via goals from Martin Caceres and Alessandro del Piero before threatening to run riot late on.
