Inter Milan vs Juventus
Date: Tuesday, 2 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milano.
Inter will host Juventus in the first episode of Derby d’Italia in this season’s Coppa Italia semi-final. Both sides enter the tie on a high, hoping to back up their superb attacking form and gain advantage ahead of the reverse fixture in Turin.
The Nerazzurri have not won this competition in more than a decade. They had an extremely tough route to the semi-final, but somehow managed to find two separate 2-1 wins over the likes of Fiorentina and Milan in the process.
I Bianconeri, who lost to Napoli in the last season’s Coppa Italia final, had a much easier job to reach the last-four stage. They bagged seven goals in wins over Genoa and SPAL. This will be their first serious test in the competition, though.
Andrea Pirlo’s men seem to have tightened things up defensively as they kept four consecutive clean sheets in all competitions ahead of this tie at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Inter Milan vs Juventus Head-to-head
The two teams met each other just two weeks ago in the league. Inter will be looking to repeat the magnificent performance from a 2-0 victory at this venue.
Nerazzurri have thus ended a two-loss streak in clashes against bitter rivals from Turin.
Interestingly, just one of the last six head to head contests has produced three or more goals.
Inter Milan vs Juventus Prediction
Looking at the head to head tradition and both sides’ recent defensive showings, we can hardly expect a goal fest on Tuesday evening at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Inter kept three consecutive clean sheets in Serie A. They allowed just one goal in the Coppa Italia quarter-final against Serie A leaders Milan. They will be playing the rivals who have kept four subsequent clean sheets in all competitions here.
Moving forward, it is interesting to mention that both Inter and Juventus featured the semi-final of this competition last season.
None of the four matches they have played combined at this stage has produced three or more goals.
The Under 2.5 goals FT is thus a must-take pick at the odds of 1.80, while we will alternatively back the draw at tempting 3.50 odds.
