The Nerazzurri will hope to get an advantage in the first leg of the Juve vs Inter Milan Coppa Italia semi-final. The Bianconeri recently completed a double over Inter in Serie A, although their victory was tainted with some controversial decisions. But the defending champions Inter will be ready to make a comeback as Inzaghi decided to rest some of his key players against Fiorentina. This cost him the game, but he will be ready with some fresh players at Turin.
The Old Lady’s campaign had a major blow when they suffered a 15-point deduction. However, they have not looked back since then, as they have closed the gap with Inter to just six points. Coming with five successive wins in a row, Juve will be confident to beat Inter this time. They lost to them in the last year’s final. Moreover, the Nerazzurri have been struggling to get back on track lately, as they suffered a third consecutive loss in Serie A.
Juve vs Inter Milan semi-final: team news, tactics, and prediction
Despite having a poor record in the league against Juve, Inter have got the better of them where it matters. They dethroned Juve in 2021 to win the Scudetto after more than a decade. The Nerazzurri have also won Coppa Italia and Supercoppa against the Old Lady.
Allegri will miss Chiesa again, but he will bring back some important players. Rabiot, Di Maria, and Valhovic got some rest against Verona over the weekend. Meanwhile, Inzaghi will revert to Dzeko and Lautaro’s partnership at the front after a poor performance from Lukaku and Correa on the weekend. Calhanoglu is recovering sooner than expected so he could start on the bench for this game.
Inzaghi will have to use a more pragmatic approach and hope that they at least dish out a draw against the in-form Bianconeri.
Juve 1-1 Inter Milan.
