Juventus vs Inter Milan, Coppa Italia 09.02.2021
Italian powerhouses Juventus and Inter Milan face off in the second leg of Coppa Italia semifinal on Tuesday evening in Turin, with the hosts in the driver’s seat after bagging a 2-1 first-leg victory last week.
Read on to get our betting tips for this return leg.
Juventus appear to have hit top gear in recent weeks if their performance is anything to go by. The loss to Inter Milan in the Serie A last month appears to have been their turning point. They have gone on an impressive six-game winning streak since then which includes the first leg win in Milan.
What has stood out perhaps has been their renewed focus on defence. They have kept clean sheets in all five league wins since that loss to Inter, with the latest of these being the 2-0 win over Roma, who they subsequently overtook on the league table.
Andrea Pirlo will have been pleased with his side’s performance in the first leg and their overall level of focus during this terrific run they are on. He will need them to be at their utmost best once again if they are to seal progress to the final.
Inter face an uphill task to overcome their first-leg loss. They will need to do something they have not done at this venue since 2013 – win. For what it’s worth, they were a little bit understrength in that first leg, and with their talisman Romelu Lukaku available for this game, they sure will feel they can make this a contest.
They responded to that loss by picking up an easy 2-0 win over Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Friday evening which momentarily sent them to the top of Serie A standings before their neighbours AC Milan thrashed Crotone a couple of days later to reclaim that coveted top spot.
With this tie delicately balanced, they will certainly go all out to give themselves a chance of some silverware which have been hard to come by since the glorious Jose Mourinho era.

Inter is likely to be the aggressor here as they go in search for the early goal to get back into the game. They gave a good account of themselves in that first leg and created quite a few chances. With the full complement of their squad including Lukaku who they sorely missed in that opening leg, we can expect them to go all out here from the get-go. They are likely to edge the possession battle and we fancy them to get more corners in this game @ 1.66 with Betway.

Andrea Pirlo knows all too well that a fast-paced, back and forth battle will play into Inter’s hands. We can therefore expect to see a much more measured approach with key emphasis on defence from the Bianconeri. That has been their staple diet in their recent revival and we could yet see that in play here. They will try as much as possible to stifle Inter’s wing play with Cuadrado and Federico Chiesa. We are therefore expecting a game will limited goal-scoring chances and we are backing Under 3.5 goals @ 1.40 with Betway betting app for our final tip.
