Italy: Coppa Italia - semifinals (1st match)
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
The first match of semifinals of Coppa Italia will be held between Juventus and Napoli. The battle will consist of two meetings and the first one will take place in Turin where hosts practically never lose. It should be mentioned that during the last 5 meeting of these teams in Turin the hosts were able to win only once by the penalty shootout. The bookmakers consider that the first meeting of these clubs will end in winning of the hosts.
“la Vecchia signora” at this tournament has played already two matches and both were home matches. At first the team has managed to win over Atalanta with the score 3:2 and then Milan with the score 2:1. Also remember that in frames of Serie A “black and whites” haven’t lost any match. And that is obvious that during the semifinal battle the team will highlight the home match.
The football club also has played two matches at the tournament and those also were home matches. At first the team was stronger than Spezia (3:1) and Fiorentina with the minimal outcome 1:0. “Blues” are now at their best but during the away match they will play at defense.
Two strong teams that can show great football are going to play with each other. But still we think that the match won’t be rich in goals. This is due to the importance of winning for both teams and secondly, by the fact that the guests will play at defense.
