Crespo: ‘Juventus are favourites’

Former Inter striker Hernan Crespo looks ahead to the Derby d’Italia - “like it or not, Juventus start as favourites”.

The Nerazzurri are currently 11 points behind the league leaders, so must avoid defeat in Turin to keep their Scudetto hopes alive.

“Like it or not, Juventus start as favourites,” Crespo told Inter TV.

“Inter are crazy though, anything could happen, they’ve shown that in several matches this year, winning them at the end.

“In a one-off game, the Nerazzurri can hurt the Bianconeri.”

Following Friday’s match, Luciano Spalletti’s side face a crucial Champions League clash with PSV.

“It’s crucial for 1,000 reasons, not just for qualification. With a very complicated group, and many years of absence, it would mean so much for Inter.”
