It’s Coppa Italia time! Tonight Milan hosts Juventus at San Siro in an epic episode of the eternal derby of Italy. The game is 1st leg of the Coppa Italia semi-finals and it is set to start at 19:45 GMT 0.
We expect a good match from AC Milan
The team of Milan was so misfortunate to lose their last game against Inter as they had a comfortable lead of two goals at half-time. Anyway, the boys of Stefano Pioli should quickly forget the unpleasant defeat by Inter and head to their next challenge – the current champions of Seria A Juventus. One can be said about the team of Milan – they are just unpredictable. It is obvious that the team owns a massive amount of talent but perhaps this season will not be intended for achieving something great. The weak start of the season could not be compensated, unfortunately. Lifting the trophy in Coppa Italia could be at least a small consolation.
What can we see from Juventus after the loss against Verona
Juventus surprisingly lost against Verona last round and now the battle for the title in Seria A looks more interesting than ever as all Juventus, Lazio and Inter have chances for lifting the trophy at the end. Unluckily, Juventus should fight at 3 fronts – Seria A, Champions League and Coppa Italia. That could squeeze the powers of the champions and could let them making some wrong steps. We are sure that Juventus are not going to underestimate the upcoming match against Milan but let’s say that we won’t be surprised that the Rossoneri get into the final.
Betting tip for the game
Predicting a final outcome in the first leg would be an impossible task. Predicting goals on both nets seems easy as Milan will look for the win passionately till the end while Juve will find it hard to fix their problems in defence for one day.
