There’s no love between Inter Milan and Juventus, and these two Italian soccer squads will go face-to-face in the Coppa Italia! These archrivals will battle in the first leg of the tournament’s semifinals on Jan. 27, and HollywoodLife.com wants you to catch every moment! Click to watch.
Goooooaaaal! It’s time for some stellar soccer from two of Italy’s finest teams, as Inter Milan will take on Juventus in a stage of the Coppa Italia. The winner will get one step closer to raising the trophy in glorious victory, while the loser will have to say “ciao.”
The near-unstoppable Juventus squad will host their Italian brothers when Inter Milan travels to the Juventus Stadium in Turin, Italy on Jan. 27, according to ESPN. It’s the first leg of the semifinals, and it promises to be an incredible match. The action kicks off at 2:45 P.M. EST so be ready to see some of Italy’s finest play in this game.
It’s a two-legged series will put Inter against a team that has won the Coppa ten times. However, Internazionale isn’t a shabby squad, as they’ve taken home the Coppa Italia seven times. But sadly, Il Biscione has been suffering a roller coaster of a season, according to SB Nation, and are the underdogs for this game.
On the other hand, Le Zebre have been on fire! Juventus are on an 11-match winning streak, according to the International Business Times. But their recent success hasn’t gone to their head, as manager Massimiliano Allegri said, “We have a packed schedule ahead but we must stay level-headed. As I have always said, keeping your cool and focus is everything in football and the boys have maintained theirs brilliantly in the last few months.”
Inter Manager Robert Mancini says he’ll make some changes to the starting line-up for this vital match. “Juventus have recovered so many points in recent weeks and they’re definitely in great form. We’ll need to put the hard work in and fight,” Robert said, according to SkySports. “The match is played over 180 minutes so we need to perform well to achieve a good result in the first leg and have a chance of going through in the second.”
Inter and Juve better get used to seeing each other. After this match, they’ll play again in a Serie A game on Feb. 28. Then, they’ll meet for a third time on March 2, playing the second leg of the Coppa Italia semifinals. Seems these bitter enemies will be spending plenty of time together in the near future.
