Marco Materazzi insists “Juventus must not win” against Inter on Saturday, not least because it would derail their Scudetto hopes.
The Bianconeri are just one point ahead of Napoli at the top of Serie A, and face a Derby d’Italia against the Champions League-chasing Beneamata.
“Inter can’t miss this opportunity to take an important step toward a return to the Champions League, and really complicate the season for a historic rival like Juventus,” Materazzi told Corriere dello Sport.
“If they don’t win in Milan they risk being overtaken and the pleasure for Interisti would be double.
“Don’t get me wrong, I know they’ll be angry and therefore even more dangerous, but San Siro is our home and Juventus must not win in our home.
“If we don’t beat the Bianconeri it’ll be difficult to make a run at the top four.”
