Inter Milan – Juventus | 12/01/2022

A high-stakes Derby d’Italia will decide the destiny of the Supercoppa Italiana this year, as Inter Milan and Juventus clash at San Siro on Wednesday. The 34th edition of the match-up between Serie A champions and Coppa Italia winners not only sees the first silverware of the season up for grabs, but also brings together the two most successful clubs in Calcio.

Winners of the Serie A (SA) title in 2020/21, Inter Milan, take on Coppa Italia winners from the same season, Juventus, in a true clash of Italian heavyweights in the Supercoppa Italiana. Inter look like the team to beat after ascending to the summit of SA with a stunning eight league wins in a row, and are now undefeated in their last 12 domestic matches (W10, D2).

‘I Nerazzurri’ haven’t featured in the Supercoppa Italiana since managing seven consecutive appearances between 2005-2011, where they were victorious on four of those occasions. To fulfill their role as betting favorites here, and be crowned champions for the sixth time in their history, they’ll have to get past a Juventus team they’ve only managed to beat once across the last 12 competitive H2Hs (D4, L7), but with this match being played at the San Siro, home advantage could tip the balance.

Juventus’ record-extending 14th Coppa Italia triumph last season secured their record-extending 17th appearance in this showpiece final, and they now chase a record-extending tenth Supercoppa crown! See a pattern? Italy’s cup competition kings have participated in this final for the last nine seasons, taking the cup home five times during that run.

Despite sitting 11 points off the pace in SA, the ‘Old Lady’ will be on a high after coming out on top in a game of the season contender, beating Roma 4-3 last time out. Their shaky start to the season seems to be well and truly behind them, as a current eight-game undefeated streak (W6, D2) that saw them lead 1-0 at half-time on six occasions, indicates confidence in the Juve camp is high.
