On Tuesday, April 4, in Turin, at the Allianz Stadium, the first match of the semi-final of the Coppa Italia football will take place, in which Juventus Turin and Inter Milan will play. The starting whistle of the referee Davide Massa from the Empire will sound at 22:00 Kyiv time.
Despite the various financial scandals that accompany Juventus Turin during the current season, Massimiliano Allegri’s team is still trying to show results. In the context of Serie A, the Italian specialist likes to remind that his team was taken away 15 points scored as sanctions, otherwise it would have been second in the standings, immediately after the virtually unreachable Napoli. In addition, the Zebras continue to play in the UEFA Europa League, where their quarter-finals against Sporting Lisbon will be devoted to the next two weeks.
And in the near future, the Bianconeri will have to play the first semi-final match of the Coppa Italia against Inter Milan in the hope of preventing their principal rivals from picking up another cup trophy, along with the country’s Super Cup, during the current campaign. Obviously, the draw in terms of matches at home and then away played against the Turin team, but the experience of the current season suggests that Juventus may well give a fight to opponents in the Derby d’Italia both on their own arena and on someone else’s. It is not for nothing that the “zebras” won both meetings in the championship, and even with a “dry” score of 3:0. The absence of failures in the previous five matches on the domestic and international arenas will also speak in favor of the Allegri team.
At the same time, in the camp of Milan’s Inter, the club’s favorite dance of recent years began on the rake of the potential resignation of the head coach. Three matches in a row in Serie A “snakes” can not even draw. Unlike the lack of victory in the away game against Porto (0:0), these results do not help the Nerazzurri move up in the standings at all, and even lead to sad consequences. Not so long ago, the team of Simone Inzaghi was a direct pursuer of Napoli, and now, including due to the defeat from Juventus in the recent league game (0:1), it occupies only the fourth line. If the Roman “Roma” a little more agile, “Inter” would no longer be even in the Champions League zone.
That is why Milan is now actively discussing the topic of a possible replacement for Inzaghi, if not at the final stage of the season, then already during the summer break. Hopes for the return of the championship title from Inter, like all Serie A teams, were selected by the magnificent Napoli, in the Champions League, the Lisbon Benfica definitely does not look like a comfortable opponent in the quarterfinals, although it is not the worst possible option. So it remains for Inzaghi to shake the Italian Super Cup in front of the fans and the club’s management, hoping to cling to the country’s Cup as the second trophy of the season. But, for starters, it would be nice for Inter to remember how to win.
Juventus: Shchesny – Gatti, Bremer, Danilo – Kostic, Rabio, Locatelli, Miretti, De Sciglio – Di Maria – Vlahovich.
Inter: Onana – Bastogne, Acherbi, Darmian – Gosens, Mkhitaryan, Brozovich, Barella, Dumfries – Jacko, Martinez.
Out: Caio, Ihattaren, Pogba, Bonucci, Chiesa-Dalbert, Calhanoglu, Dimarco, Skriniar.
Forecast for confrontation
We believe that in the upcoming game the home team will be closer to success with ineffective football. Our bet will be the position – Juventus win by one goal or a draw with a coefficient of 1.75.
