The Bianconeri’s build-up to the eagerly-awaited clash with Inter at Juventus Stadium on Sunday has gathered pace this afternoon in Vinovo.
Spared the snow that began falling straight after the group had returned to the dressing room, Antonio Conte’s men divided their session between the gym and the training pitch, where they worked on technical drills and team moves.
Sunday’s fixture against the Nerazzurri will be the follow-up to a tense 1-1 draw the two sides recorded on 14 September 2013 at the San Siro, but much has changed since then.
While the rivals were neck and neck after their opening two games at that time, Walter Mazzarri’s charges are now 23 points behind Juve and are enduring a dry patch in front of goal with just one strike in their last five matches in all competitions.
Conte will be well aware that Inter remain tricky opposition, though, and his preparations will continue tomorrow when he calls his men together for another afternoon session.
