The apotheosis of the Italian cup will be on the competition calendar on Wednesday 9 May at 9 p.m. Superpower Juventus appears to be on its way to its 34th national title and wants to seize 13th Coppa Italia against AC Milan. In the Olimpico stadium, an unequal battle is expected.
On paper, Juventus is better than the Milanese challenger in every position, and the recent results are also not an issue. This season Juventus won 0-2 in Milan and a month ago the Red-Blacks won 3-1 at home. De Oude Dame has an experienced defense, a creative midfield and a life-threatening attack, and that makes AC Milan a tough task. The strikers Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala already have 37 league goals behind their name. In addition, trainer Massimiliano Allegri has a top player on the bench in the form of Mario Mandzukic. De Kroaat played all four cup matches so he can probably count on a base place in the final.
The strength of Juventus is not only in the high-quality player material. This year the team is mentally strong. In the Champions League, the team fought back twice without a chance. Both against Tottenham Hotspur in the eighth and against Real Madrid in the quarterfinals, the team proved that they will continue to fight until the final sob. In the cup tournament it was made less exciting; economical victories in succession to Genoa. Torino and Atalanta cleared the way to the final. The team did not score any goals in these four games. The hunt for the fourth cup win in a row can be looked forward to with confidence, because Juventus knows when it has to excel.
AC Milan narrowly qualified for the final. Lazio Roma was defeated after penalties. For the Rossoneri, the cup final is the last chance to make something of the season. The club is in a disappointing seventh place in the league and would take on European football without the final place. The club lacks top players and scoring ability. The figures from the Series A. Patrick Cutrone and Giacomo Bonaventura together with seven goals are club top scorers. With 64 goals, they have to tolerate ten clubs. AC Milan unworthy. The experienced defenders of Juventus have no compassion for the powerless Milan attack and will also count their top strikers who get the job done in the front.
