Massimiliano Allegri is sure the Italian Derby slated for this weekend will prove to be important in the race for the scudetto.
The match on Sunday is the first between the two Italian heavyweights, with both teams having contrasting starts to the season.
Juventus are yet to lose four matches in all competitions, while Inter Milan have recorded just a single win so far.
However, Allegri has insisted the champions – who are in search of their sixth successive Scudetto – will be taking nothing for granted.
“It will be a beautiful game as we are playing the Derby d’Italia and it will be the first turning point in the title race,” Allegri said.
“It’s the first turning point for winning the championship. Someone could think we are only at the fourth game-week and therefore it won’t be decisive yet for the title but I don’t agree.
“Inter against Juventus is the first big moment in the title race.”
