Juventus

Juventus will try to get the ticket for the Final of Coppa Italia, as the team host AC Milan at the Juventus Stadium tonight. In the first leg, La Vecchia Signora got an important 1-1 draw at San Siro, as Cristiano Ronaldo scored a penalty kick in the injury time.

Juventus have been dominant in Italy, not only by winning consecutive Serie A titles but also the Coppa Italia. The team won 4 of the last 5 Coppa Italia editions.

The matches between both rivals rivals are usually very tight, with 4 of the last 5 meetings having less than 2.5 goals.

The last meeting was in November, with Juventus getting the edge over AC Milan at home, thanks to a decisive goal from the Argentinian forward Paulo Dybala.

AC Milan

After 3 months with no competition, AC Milan restarts with a great challenge ahead. The Rossoneri will need to come back from a 1-1 draw at San Siro if they want to be in the Final of Coppa Italia.

AC Milan has an impressive negative record against Juventus, with 9 defeats in the last 10 meetings with the Bianconeri.

In another tough season for the Rossoneri, the team from Stefano Pioli currently sits 7th in Serie A, still with a shot of getting a spot that guarantees a place in next season’s Europa League.

Before the break, AC Milan won just one game in the last 5. With just 28 goals scored, AC Milan is the 4th worst scoring record in Serie A.

For the game at Juventus Stadium, Pioli will not have Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Leo Duarte, and Mateo Musacchio available.

Betting Tip

We expect a very tight match, following the same that has been verified in the last 10 matches between Juventus and AC Milan. Despite that, it would be very surprising if Juventus doesn´t get the win. Check Juventus to win!

Napoli v Inter Milan – June 13

After a great away victory in the first leg, Napoli has a great opportunity to seal their place in the Final of Coppa Italia. The Gli Azzurri will host Inter at Stadio San Paolo on Saturday, June 13.

Napoli

Napoli are very close to seal a place in the Final of Coppa Italia after getting a precious 1-0 win at Gouseppe Meazza on the first leg.

Before the break, the time from Gennaro Gattuso was performing one of their best moments of the season, with 4 wins in the last 5 matches. Actually, the team was able to defeat Juventus, Lazio, and Inter during the last 9 matches before the break.

After 3 months with no competitions, Napoli is back on track, and Kalidou Koulibaly is also fit to take his place beside Kostas Manolas in the team.

Inter Milan

Conte’s team has been one of the best squads in Italy this season, However, recent games before the break were not good for Inter. The Nerazzurri lost 3 of the last 5 matches, against some very important opponents like Lazio and Juventus.

Last January, Inter was able to get a convincing 3-1 win at Stadio San Paolo and that’s what Conte and the team will try to repeat this weekend.

Played behind close doors, Inter will have the advantage of not having the tough environment of the San Paolo to deal with.

Betting Tip

With a great result in the first leg, we expect Napoli to get another win and seal their place in the Final of Coppa Italia. Check the market for Napoli to win!
