Coppa Italia Semi Final Preview
Last Thursday, Italy’s Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora formally announced that the Coppa Italia semi-final second legs will be played on June 12 and June 13, ahead of the Final being played on June 17 in Rome.
This means, after a three-month stoppage due to COVID-19, Italian football will finally return to our screens this weekend before Serie A gets back underway on June 20. Not only do we get to enjoy the return of Italian football, but we get to see four European heavyweights in action – Juventus, AC Milan, Napoli and Inter Milan!
The resumption of play in Italy follows the steps taken by both German and Spanish soccer associations in previous weeks to get back to action. La Liga soccer action returns on Thursday with the Seville derby between Sevilla and Real Betis, while the German Bundesliga prepares for its sixth weekend of competitive soccer since the restart.
Coppa Italia Semi Final Betting Odds
Let’s take a look at the odds for the weekend’s Coppa Italia semi-finals at bet365.
Juventus v AC Milan Preview
Friday’s 2nd Leg match between Juventus and AC Milan is set up perfectly after the first meeting in February ended 1-1 in Milan. Cristiano Ronaldo did what he does best and netted a 91st-minute equaliser from the penalty spot to earn Juve the draw.
The sportsbook odds suggest Friday’s encounter will be a routine victory for Juventus, who are -200 on the moneyline. Juventus are in search of a league and cup double this season, as they are in pole position to win Serie A for an unprecedented ninth season in a row. One point ahead of Lazio in second and nine ahead of Inter in third, Juve will hope to continue their dominance of Italian soccer. A win on Friday will certainly help.
Napoli v Inter Milan Preview
In the other semi-final, Napoli head into Saturday with a 1-0 advantage over Inter Milan from the 1st Leg. While nobody knows how either team is going to react after an extensive break from play, many media outlets have suggested that Antonio Conte’s Inter will come into this game with a completely new system. The system sees Inter’s familiar 3-5-2 formation replaced with a 3-4-1-2 formation in an attempt to get the best out of new recruit Christian Eriksen.
In the same way as nobody knows how the players will react to a return to play, nobody really knows how this new system will affect Inter’s chances on Saturday. What we do know is that Inter have accumulated 15 points more than Napoli in Serie A. But, cup competitions always have that element of surprise and Napoli do have the one-goal advantage going into Saturday. It’s clear that the sportsbooks can’t separate the two sides either, with Napoli moneyline at +162, draw at +250 and Inter moneyline at +160.
