Ranocchia aims for Juventus double

Inter thwarted the Bianconeri's attempts to go 50 games unbeaten in November, and the center back is hoping his side can slow down their title charge on Saturday
Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia is targeting a double success over rival Juventus in the second Derby d’Italia of the campaign this weekend.

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 center 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.”

Juventus is nine points clear at the top of Serie A while Inter is seven adrift of the final Champions League spot.
