Juventus vs Inter Milan Prediction & Match Preview

Juventus vs Inter Milan
Italy – Coppa Italia
Date: Tuesday, 9 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium.

Juventus will be looking to defend their slim lead in the Coppa Italia tie against Inter when they host the Nerazzurri at their Allianz Stadium in the return leg. 


Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals helped Juve beat Inter in Milano, and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the Portugal superstar when the two teams face each other on Tuesday evening. 

Paulo Dybala remains in the recovery room, while Aaron Ramsey is a major doubt.

Cuadrado and De Ligt are pushing for a start. The Nerazzurri, on the other hand, have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Juventus. 

Antonio Conte’s men need a big win in the return leg if they are to book their place in the Coppa Italia final, and, taking everything into account, over 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. 

Both Sanchez and Vidal are banned for the visitors.

Team News:

Juventus will assess the extent of an injury to Leonardo Bonucci incurred in the win over Fiorentina, with Andrea Pirlo hoping the veteran will be fit to start. Matthijs de Ligt is available as cover and could even be partnered in central defence by Merih Demiral, as in the first leg.

Gianluigi Buffon regains his place in goal as designated 'cup goalkeeper', while Rodrigo Bentancur should return in midfield after being suspended in the league at the weekend. Versatile forward Dejan Kulusevski replaces Alvaro Morata in support of Cristiano Ronaldo up front.

Inter pair Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal miss out this week due to one-match Coppa Italia bans for accumulation of yellow cards. However, key men Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi are now available for cup duty, having both missed the trip to Milan through suspension.

Antonio Conte is set to bring Roberto Gagliardini into the central three of his 3-5-2 in place of Vidal, after he replaced the Chilean midfielder at the break on Friday.

Expected to make further changes to his starting lineup, Conte could opt for Christian Eriksen as a deep-lying playmaker, after his success in the role against Benevento and free-kick winner in the quarter-final. Hakimi's return means that Matteo Darmian is likely to miss out, with Lukaku also coming back into the cup XI for the suspended Sanchez.

Juventus possible starting lineup:
Buffon; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Demiral, Danilo; Bernardeschi, Bentancur, Rabiot, Chiesa; Kulusevski, Ronaldo

Inter Milan possible starting lineup:
Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Eriksen, Gagliardini, Young; Martinez, Lukaku
