Inter Milan have a tough mission to continue their journey in the Coppa Italia, where the Nerazzurri will face arch rivals Juventus. Regarding this, coach Antonio Conte requires his team to appear perfect if they want to win.
As is known, Inter Milan managed to secure a ticket to this season’s Coppa Italia semifinals after defeating city rivals AC Milan in the last eight.
Meanwhile, Juventus itself secured tickets to the semifinals after successfully eliminating SPAL.
Well, the two teams who are known to have eternal rivalries will meet each other in the semifinals. The Duel itself is planned to take place at the Giuseppe Meazza Wednesday (3/2/2021) in the morning WIB.
Obviously this is not an easy match for the two teams, especially since Juventus previously defeated Inter Milan at a meeting in the Italian Serie A with a score of 0-2.
However, recently the performance of Andrea Pirlo’s team seems to have improved and been more consistent. Most recently, they successfully won the duel against Sampdoria with a score of 2-0.
In their last five matches in all competitions, the Bianconneri’s total has only swallowed one defeat and successfully won four.
The Inter Milan coach who is a former Juventus tactician also admits that the Bianconneri are currently in good momentum.
For this reason, the former Chelsea coach requires his team to perform perfectly in the two semifinal meetings against Juventus if they really want to advance to the final round.
“You always have to pay respect to very strong teams, and we certainly have to put on a perfect performance. The next 180 minutes will determine who will qualify, and the first match will be important. “Confirmed Conte on the club’s official website.
Furthermore, Conte admitted that he did not want last year’s events to happen again, where at that time they were eliminated by Napoli despite their best efforts.
“Last year, we lost 0-1 to Napoli at home and were unable to turn things around at San Paolo despite playing very well. We need to do well and try to do our best.” He said.
