Inter Milan can provide Juventus with a bigger test than either Barcelona or Real Madrid, according to Juve keeper Gianluigi Buffon.

The Nrazzurri visit the Juventus Stadium on Sunday and Buffon feels his side will need to be on top form to get a result.

Inter won the reverse fixture 2-1 in September and also claimed a 3-1 win over Juve in the Coppa Italia last season, although they lost the tie 4-3 on aggregate.

The Bianconeri have struggled against both Milan sides this season as they have also been beaten by AC Milan in Serie A and in the Super Coppa Italiana final, and Buffon says his side cannot afford to underestimate their opponents.

"Now we wait for Inter, who are better than Real and Barca," Buffon told Sky Sport Italia.

He added: "It will be difficult to meet this challenge, we respect them [Inter].

"They're a strong team, and they showed in the first fixture this season."

Juve are 8/13 to secure all three points on Sunday or 25/1 to win 4-1.

A win for Inter is 5/1 and a draw can be backed at 14/5.

Juve are the current Serie A leaders with 51 points, four ahead of nearest rivals Roma.

If Inter do manage to come out on top on Sunday they will move to within six points of Juve.
