Juventus vs Inter MilanCoppa Italia, KO: 20:00 May 11, 2022, Stadio Olimpico
Juventus and Inter Milan have the chance to get their hands on silverware as they face each other in the Coppa Italia final on Wednesday. A closely fought encounter is expected here but the Nerazzurri have gotten the better of their rivals in recent meetings and should have the edge.
The Coppa Italia has been a good competition for Juventus this season as they have maintained a 100% record all the way to the final. Massimiliano Allegri's men did the double over Fiorentina to book their place in Wednesday’s clash with the tie ending 3-0 on aggregate.
Holding a seven-point gap in fourth, Juventus have now secured Champions League qualification for next season.
Juventus have generally been in good form lately with just one defeat in their last six matches across all competitions. However, that defeat came last Saturday as they were down 2-1 at Genoa in Serie A.
Inter Milan have not maintained a 100% record in the Coppa Italia like Juventus, but they are still unbeaten in the competition. They overcame Serie A leaders AC Milan in the semi-final, playing out a 0-0 draw in the first leg before claiming a 3-0 victory in the return leg.
The Coppa Italia could represent Inter Milan’s only claim to silverware this season with AC Milan refusing to buldge at the top of Serie A. In their quest to reel in the Rossoneri, Simone Inzaghi’s men have been near perfect lately with seven wins from their last eight matches across all competitions.
Inter Milan warmed up for Wednesday’s final with a 4-2 victory over Empoli in Serie A last Friday. They showed good character to fight back from two goals down with Lautaro Martinez netting a brace while Alexis Sanchez was also on target.
