After a controversial and eventful first leg against the Bianconeri, Inter vs Juve semi-final 2nd leg is expected to be nothing short of a blockbuster. The Italian giants will lock horns for the fourth and final Derby d’Italia this season for a spot in the Coppa Italia final. Inzaghi will be keen to defend the title, as a bid to keep his job for the next season.
Juventus got their 15 points back for the time being, hence inter are down to the sixth place. But the Nerazzurri are in the semi-finals of the Champions League and have a real chance to reach the finals as they face their eternal rivals AC Milan. While the Bianconeri are going to face the Europa League heavyweights Sevilla in the semi-finals. Juventus will be keen to take revenge as they lost to Inter Milan last season in the final.
Inter vs Juve semi-final: team news, tactics, and prediction
The Nerazzurri received a big boost before the clash as the Italian FA president decided to lift Lukaku’s one-game ban. The Belgian striker is getting back in form as he is coming after scoring a brace on the weekend against Empoli. The ‘Lu-La’ duo combined for the final goal, and Inzaghi could start the duo against a struggling Juventus side. The Old Lady have just one win in their last six games and three defeats in a row in Serie A.
Allegri has a couple of injury issues for this game, as he would miss Vlahovic and Kean. Milik is the only striker available, and Cuadrado is out serving his suspension. But Kostic can cause trouble to Inter’s back line, along with Di Maria. While Inzaghi will revert to his best lineup after resting his key players against Empoli.
The Nerazzurri are a different side in the knockout stages under Simone Inzaghi. They should get the better of the Old Lady at the Meazza.
Inter Milan 2-1 Juventus.
