Juventus return to the San Siro to take on Inter Milan once more, but this time in the Coppa Italia.
The Old Lady are three matches away from lifting the illustrious trophy, and while neither Napoli or Atalanta will be a pushover in the final, tonight’s opponents appear to be the bigger challenge.
Inter beat Juve just over two weeks ago in Serie A, with our side failing to cause our rivals much problem at all, but we have shown immense fight to get back on track since.
Antonio Conte will take on his former club having triumphed in a nerve-jangling Derby della Madonnina last week, overcoming rivals AC Milan in the quarter-finals courtesy of a 97th-minute Christian Eriksen winner. Juve, meanwhile, had a slightly less-dramatic encounter, comfortably seeing off second-tier SPAL 4-0.
We were unfathomed in our bid to win the Supercoppa Italiana against Napoli, where we put in a dogged performance to win 2-0, and have been picking up stride since.
Juventus are very-much the form team in Italy at present, and you would also think that the latest team news would also be in our favour.
The Bianoneri have eight wins from their last nine matches in all competitions, and have an aggregate score of 10-0 for their four fixtures since that loss to Inter, and will be the more confident of the two sides this evening.
Pertemuan pertama antara kedua tim terjadi pada tahun 1936. Namun, Inter baru mencatatkan kemenangan pertama mereka pada tahun 1972, saat Mazzola dan Boninsegna mencetak gol dalam kemenangan 3-1. Sementara pertemuan terakhir mereka terjadi di babak semifinal musim 2015/16. Bianconeri mendominasi di Turin, unggul 3-0 berkat dua gol Morata dan gol Dybala.

And as much as you rank the Coppa Italia third out of the three competitions Juventus can still possibly win, it is still a trophy, one that Juventus hasn’t won in a couple of years, too.
Since the loss to Inter on Jan. 17, Juventus has responded just how you would want them to respond. There’s been more good moments than bad. They have posted clean sheets in four straight games despite there being plenty of rotation and injuries to deal with. The midfield that we were all pretty critical of after the Inter loss has found its footing and looks about as solid as it has all season.
