Stadium: Allianz Stadium
Juve’s weekend fixture was also a 2-0 victory, though they were up against AS Roma rather than Fiorentina. A Roger Ibanez own goal coupled with Cristiano Ronaldo’s strike were enough to see the Old Lady stay within five points of Inter and stretch its winning run to six, with only one loss in its last eleven. That’s also three straight league shutouts thanks to a newfound defensive solidity. Roma for example outshot Juve 14-3 but found clear-cut opportunities very hard to come by. With Romelu Lukaku scoring just twice in his last six, a big performance is past due for the Belgian and it couldn’t come at a better time than now. Lukaku, along with Achraf Hakimi, will be available for selection after serving out yellow card suspensions in the first leg.
Juventus have an excellent advantage heading into this game, having taken a 2-1 lead away from home in the first-leg. Cristiano Ronaldo was the star of the show, netting a first-half brace that cancelled out Lautaro Martinez’s early strike, inflicting a damaging result on Inter Milan, who now have an uphill task in Turin.
The Nerazzurri will have to win this game by a two-goal margin or at least score three goals in order to cancel out Juventus’ away-goal advantage. It is a near-impossible task, especially at the Allianz Stadium and even though the Bianconeri have been far from impressive under Andrea Pirlo, they have shown promising signs in recent matches.
As a matter of fact, Juventus are heading into this game on the back of a six-game winning streak in all competitions, with their latest triumph coming against AS Roma on Saturday. Their last defeat did, however, come against Inter and Antonio Conte’s men will be hoping to replicate that 2-0 performance last month in their bid to reach the final of the Coppa Italia.
Expected to make further changes to his starting lineup, Conte could opt for Christian Eriksen as a deep-lying playmaker, after his success in the role against Benevento and free-kick winner in the quarter-final. Hakimi’s return means that Matteo Darmian is likely to miss out, with Lukaku also coming back into the cup XI for the suspended Sanchez.
Juventus possible starting lineup:
Buffon; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Demiral, Danilo; Bernardeschi, Bentancur, Rabiot, Chiesa; Kulusevski, Ronaldo
Inter Milan possible starting lineup:
Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Eriksen, Gagliardini, Young; Martinez, Lukaku
