Former Inter and Juventus player Cristiano Zanetti spoke to Tuttomercatoweb ahead of the highly anticipated Derbuyd’Italia match: “I think Saturday Juventus are favourites because they play at home, but Inter are going really well and can count on a great coach. I was not expecting the Nerazzurri to be at this level, basically they have the same team as last year, so Spalletti deserves all the merit for how he worked. Saturday night, the home stadium factor could tip the balance of the Italian derby in favour of Juventus.”
Speaking of the Beneamata’s title possibilities, Zanetti has no doubts: “They are a contender because they know how to win even when they don’t play well”.
Zanetti’s closing remarks were in regards to the new Vecino-Borja Valero partnership: “Fiorentina’s success in recent years has been linked to a very strong midfield which was made up of these two players. We are talking about two great players”.
