Mourinho struggles to settle In-ter new job
Jose Mourinho is the self-proclaimed 'Special One' yet his magical powers look to be on the slide as he struggles to settle into life with Inter Milan.
The Portuguese tactician replaced Roberto Mancini as Inter's manager in the summer, a move that was unpopular amongst a large number of San Siro fans, and he has still failed to win many of them over.
Jose has also come to blows with the intrusive Italian sporting press after he refused to answer questions about the manner of Mancini's departure.
However, despite a strained relationship with the fans and media, Mourinho has taken Inter to the top of the Serie A with his brand of conservative, yet highly effective football and they will start Saturday's match against Juventus as favourites.
Inter v Juventus kicks off at 19:30 will be shown live, from the San Siro, on William Hill's betlive tv service alongside four other top Serie A matches this weekend (details below).
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been in good goalscoring form of late for Inter, including a double against Palermo last weekend, while the defence is rock-solid, as is typical of all Mourinho sides.
Juventus, themselves, are in great form, as the talismanic Alessandro Del Piero continues driving 'the old lady' of Italian football forward.
As I tipped last week, Juventus easily dismissed the challenge of a rejuvented Genoa, 4-1, as they keep pace with the early leaders.
This one looks destined to be a close, low scoring contest, but as we saw, numerous times, when Mourinho was with Chelsea, his teams know how to win the big ones.
In the other Serie A betlive tv games, Lazio, Roma & AC Milan are available in an enhanced odds multiple at 6/1.
