Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia is targeting a double success over their rivals Juventus in the second Derby d’Italia of the campaign.
Andrea Stramaccioni’s men’s form in recent times has been a cause for concern, although in their last outing before the international break they recorded a morale-boosting victory over Tottenham in the Europa League.
The win for Inter in November ended Juventus’ 49-game unbeaten run in Serie A, and the centre-back is hoping to spoil the party once again on Saturday.
“We hope to repeat the trick and win again,” he told Sportmediaset.
“We can beat Juventus by working as a team, that’s the real method. We should take an example from our performance in the second leg against Tottenham, when we moved as one.”
Ranocchia said the team were fully supportive of Stramaccioni despite their recent poor results.
“These rumours do not and must not affect his work, as we are all behind him,” Ranocchia said.
“There are 10 games that we absolutely have to win. We’ll fight to the end for a place in the Champions League, though it’ll be tough because there are so many teams in this race.”
Juventus are nine points clear at the top of Serie A while Inter are seven adrift of the final Champions League spot.
