Coppa Italia semi final on Wednesday night will see Inter Milan travel to Juventus in what should be a clash of the Serie A giants. Juventus have now won eleven in a row in the league and are in superb form, Juve have climbed the league from fourteenth to second since the middle of September and now look likely to push on and win the league with Napoli and Inter Milan as their only real contenders. So it is apt that Inter Milan will face Juve over two legs for the right to play in the Coppa Italia final. Juventus front three of Dybala, Mandzukic and Zaza is probably the best in the league and will take stopping. With a solid midfield led by Paul Pogba this is a team that has finally settled into a rythm and looks likely to compete both domestically and in Europe this season. Juve have Bayern Munich in the next round of the Champions League though and that could be a stumbling block so I am certain they will be fully concentrated on both the league and the cup domestically.
Roberto Mancini's side have stumbled a little lately with Inter taking just two wins in their last six games in all competitions. Inter have a really good defence but goals have been a problem all season. Icardi is the main man up front and has eight for the season but Jovetic( on loan from Man City) Ljacic and Palacio have just seven goals between them. Mancini knows his side needs more offensive production but it's hard to see where he will go for reinforcements. This is a solid team but against Juventus I think they are going to come up short offensively. Over two legs though anything is possible and I am certain that Inter Milan are going to go to Juventus and look for a draw.
Taking the unders here. While Juventus probably nick another 1-0 win we have two of the best defensive teams in the league and it's tough to see Inter Milan scoring against this Juventus backline. Likewise it's tough to see Juve scoring more than two against Inter's back four.
