Inter Milan will visit Juventus in the Italian derby on Tuesday evening at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, as part of the semi-final second leg of the Italian Cup.
Juventus set foot in the final match after snatching a harsh victory against Nerazzurri in his stronghold in San Siro, with a score (2-1), to become the closest to winning the qualifying card for the final round and facing the winner of the Atalanta and Napoli match.
Nerazzurri is afraid to repeat the scenario of the Coppa Italia semi-final in 2016, when he also collided with Juventus in this role, in two exciting matches back and forth.
The first leg was held at the Allianz Stadium, the home of Juventus, and at that time the Old Lady’s team managed to achieve a big victory with a score (3-0), with the feet of Alvaro Morata (two goals) and Paulo Dybala (one goal), so Juventus went a long way in qualifying for the second round.
In the second leg, the match was held at the San Siro stadium, and the Nerazzurri was able to teach Juventus a hard lesson after he managed to score 3 goals through Marcelo Brozovic (two goals) and Ivan Perisic (one goal), and the match ends, and the two teams resort to extra games and then to penalties.
The penalty shoot-out smiled for Juventus after his players managed to score 5 kicks compared to only 3 for Inter after Rodrigo Palacio missed a kick for his team, and Inter deposited the competition after an excellent effort from its players in the second leg.
Inter is afraid of repeating this scenario again, especially as it will enter the match looking for victory or at least resorting to penalties by winning the same result as Juventus in the last match.
