We take a deep dive into the state of both teams, their current form, and injury news ahead of the Coppa Italia final:
Juventus Form and Team News
The Old Lady would have hoped for a win to build momentum ahead of the Coppa Italia final, but they crumbled to a 2-1 loss at Genoa, marking the end of a three-match winning run in all competitions. They have six wins in their last ten in all competitions, earning one draw and losing thrice.
Juventus blazed past Fiorentina to earn a ticket to the final, where they hope to exorcise the ghosts of their last meeting with Inter in a final. They lost the Supercoppa Italia by two goals to one in January and will look to avenge that defeat on May 12. Interestingly, Juventus have only won once in their last five meetings with Inter, losing and drawing two apiece.
Jorge Kaio, Luca Pellegrini, Weston McKennie, and Danilo may miss the Coppa Italia as they remain sidelined with varying injuries.
Inter Milan Form and Team News
The Nerazzurri seemed certain to suffer a humiliating loss after going 2-0 down at Empoli, but they rallied swiftly to put four goals past their opponents in a devastating attacking display. That win saw them top the Serie A table on goal difference, and they will now turn to the Coppa Italia final, where they have a chance to add to their Supercoppa Italia trophy.
A comprehensive 3-0 win over rivals AC Milan confirmed their place in the final, where they face a Juventus side they have not lost to since May 2021. They will draw inspiration from their last outing against Juventus, where a one-nil win was enough to give them all three points in Turin. Lautaro Martinez will be key for the men in blue and black, as he has been in exceptional form in recent matches.
Alessandro Bastoni is Inter’s only absentee and will not feature as he remains injured.
