Coppa Italia action from the Sani Siro tonight as Inter Milan play host to Sampdoria. Sampdoria sold top scorer Gabbiadini to Napoli at the start of this transfer window. Selling your best player to a league rival seems silly to me but that is what Sampdoria have done. They are now heavily reliant on the brilliant defence built by Mihajlovich and Okaka and Eder up front. Given the problems Sampdoria have had this season was putting the ball in the net the move seems insane but hey I am just a writer not a business manager of an Italian soccer team.
On the other side are Inter Milan who themselves have been busy in the transfer market bringing in Podolski and Shaqiri respectively, both should provide some creativity around the midfield and with Icardi up front Roberto Mancini may have given his side a realsictic chance of the top four with those two moves. This is a talented but under performing Inter Milan side and they may look at the cup as their best chance of silverware.
I am sure both teams will be looking at this game as a winnable one but with both defences looking to have the edge on the oppositions offences I think we could see another low scoring affair here. The recent league meeting finished 1-0 to Inter and I think we could see a similar outcome tonight. Although If I was taking sides I might just go with the away team as their counter attack has been looking very good in recent weeks.
