Inter Milan vs Juventus Prediction & Match Preview

 


Inter Milan vs Juventus
Coppa Italia
Date: Tuesday, 2 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milano.

A place in the Coppa Italia final will be at stake when Inter and Juventus face each other in a highly-anticipated double-header. 


Inter came from behind to beat their local rivals Milan in the quarter-finals, but they face an uphill task in the Italian Cup semifinal. 

Since D’Ambrosio should be the only absentee in the home team, we are positive that the Nerazzurri, who crushed Benevento 4-0 at the weekend, are going to find the net in Tuesday’s showdown.

The Bianconeri, on the other hand, faced no difficulties in a 4-0 win over SPAL even though Andrea Pirlo rested almost entire starting XI. 

The Juve boss can count on key players for the Inter game, except for Paulo Dybala, and, taking everything into account, both teams to score betting option should be considered. 

As always, a man to watch in the away team will be Cristiano Ronaldo.

Team News:

Inter striker Romelu Lukaku - like his head-to-head opponent last week, Zlatan Ibrahimovic - was handed a one-match suspension following their quarter-final clash. An integral attacking threat from wing-back, Achraf Hakimi must also serve a ban, so the pair will be replaced by Alexis Sanchez and Matteo Darmian respectively.

Danilo D'Ambrosio remains injured, but otherwise Antonio Conte has a fully fit squad, so may be inclined to bring Marcelo Brozovic back in at the expense of Christian Eriksen, while Ashley Young is in contention to replace Ivan Perisic as a more defensively sound option on the left flank - given the threat posed by Juve's Juan Cuadrado.

Paulo Dybala remains the only major absentee for Andrea Pirlo, who should give veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon another cup outing, while potentially resting Giorgio Chiellini - therefore Matthijs de Ligt would come into the centre of the Juventus defence.

Brazilian full-backs Danilo and Alex Sandro appear to be in direct competition for a spot on the left of a back four, while in midfield, Rodrigo Bentancur will serve a suspension in the league next weekend so should start alongside either Arthur or Adrien Rabiot.

Still a paragon of fitness at his relatively advancing age, Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to start again, with either Dejan Kulusevski or Alvaro Morata providing his attacking partner.


Inter Milan possible starting lineup:
Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Vidal, Young; Martinez, Sanchez

Juventus possible starting lineup:
Buffon; Cuadrado, Bonucci, De Ligt, Sandro; McKennie, Bentancur, Arthur, Chiesa; Kulusevski, Ronaldo
