Italy: Coppa Italia
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
The quarterfinal of the current championship of Coppa Italia consists of six out of seven clubs of the Calcio’s Group Seven. And in the previous round only Roma which have lost to Torino (1:2) surprised the fans.
Juventus, Napoli, Lazio, Inter, Milan, Fiorentina and also Torino and Atalanta will participate in the forthcoming ¼ matches. And the attractive pair is the Milan derby of the Rossoneri and Nerazzurri.
Inter (the head coach Luciano Spalletti)
We start to present the participants of the forthcoming quarterfinal with nominal guests of San Siro as now Nerazzurri are considered to be favorites of Milan derby. The team of Luciano Spalletti has reached the equator of this season being on the third position: Napoli and Juventus are taking now the first and the second places now.
We will remind you that Inter had lost two last matches to Udinese (1:3) and Sassuolo (0:1). And therefore now the three-time champion of Europe is waiting for revenge.
Milan (the head coach Gennaro Gattuso)
The tournament situation of Milan is much worse. Alas, recent swap of coaches (Vincenzo Montella on Gennaro Gattuso) wasn't successful. More than that now Rossoneri began to lose to everyone.
And as the Italian media informs, and first of all, "Football Italia", in case Milan will lose the Coppa Italia quarterfinal Gennaro Gattuso will be dismissed, and Vincenzo Montella will return to Rossoneri.
Here it is necessary to make some explanations. According to modern regulations, the head coach who was dismissed during the season course is still in direct dependence on his last employer and he can't negotiate with other clubs of Series A enter before the end of the championship and if necessary has to return to his former team.
That is how Montella is feeling himself now. And judging by the last statements of football players from Milan they want to return the dismissed coach and therefore will hardly fight against Nerazzurri...
Milan – 3.30, draw – 3.40, Inter – 2.20;
