Inter vs Juventus prediction

Juventus will be looking to defend their big lead in the tie against Inter when the two teams take on each other in the Coppa Italia semi-finals, first leg, on Wednesday evening. Juve outplayed the Nerrazzuri in Sunday’s Serie A clash, meaning Roberto Mancini’s men are hungry for revenge.

Uphill task for Nerazzurri

By beating the likes of Cagliari and Napoli Inter set up a meeting with Juventus in the Coppa Italia semi-finals, but, as things stand now, the Nerazzurri are unlikely to make it to the final of the competition. Roberto Mancini’s team suffered a 3-0 loss to Juve in the first leg in Turin, meaning that they face an uphill task in Wednesday’s clash at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. On the other hand, Inter were beaten by Juventus in Sunday’s Serie A clash, meaning that the hosts are desperate to get their revenge on Max Allegri’s troops. The Nerazzurri are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home in the Italian Cup, but Wednesday’s clash against Juve will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Anyhow, Roberto Mancini’s charges will leave their hearts on the field in order to beat the title holders in the Coppa Italia semi-finals, return leg.

Gary Medel and Stevan Jovetic are unlikely to be risked, but coach Roberto Mancini has no fresh injury worries ahead of the Juventus game. Adem Ljajic is pushing for a start.

Juve with one foot in the final

As expected, Juventus outplayed Inter in the Coppa Italia semi-finals, first leg. The Bianconeri are with one foot in the final, but they will have to get their job done in the second leg. The Old Lady have yet to concede in the 2015/2016 Italian Cup campaign and the fact that the Bianconeri have been impressive at the back this season is giving the fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Milano. Max Allegri’s troops defeated Inter in the Serie A clash at the weekend as well and no doubt Roberto Mancini’s team suit the title holders. Alvaro Morata scored a brace in the first leg and the Spanish attacker is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition back line in Wednesday’s showdown at Stadio San Siro. Anyhow, seeing that the Bianconeri are on the verge of making it to the Coppa Italia final, coach Max Allegri is likely to mix the squad this time out.

Martin Caceres, Claudio Marchisio, Giorgio Chiellini and Patrice Evra are all out of contention, while Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic, who are one yellow card away from suspension, are likely to start from the bench.
