Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
All eyes will be on Stadio Giuseppe Meazza when Inter and Milan take on each other in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals. The two main favourites for Scudetto are enjoying a very successful season, and, no doubt, an interesting encounter is on the horizon in Milano. The Nerazzurri booked their place in the quarter-finals by beating Fiorentina on the road, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the clash against their bitter local rivals.
Both Ivan Perisic and Alexis Sanchez are pushing for a start, while D’Ambrosio and Vecino remain in the recovery room. The Rossoneri, on the other hand, suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Atalanta in their last league match. Since key midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu remains quarantined following his positive test for coronavirus, we are tempted to put our money on Antonio Conte’s troops this time out. Both Bennacer and Gabbia are sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Alexis Sanchez):
Alexis Sanchez is a Chilean football player born on 19th of December 1988. Sanchez started playing football for Cobreloa and played for Colo Colo, River Plate, Udinese and FC Barcelona before he started playing for Arsenal in 2014. The Chilean player is active for the national team as well.

Alexis Sanchez’ nickname was give by the Colo Colo fans and is El Nino Maravila which literally means The Wonder Kid. In 2014-2015 Alexis Sanchez was placed in the PFA team of the year and got nominated as Player of the year.
Highlighted Team (Milan):
AC Milan are regarded as one of the biggest club in Italy. The Rossoneri compete in the Italian Serie A and they have won 18 domestic trophies. Speaking of the club’s European success, Milan have clinched seven Champions League (European Cup) trophies.
Milan were on the verge of beating Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final, but the Premier League outfit came from three goals behind and eventually won the prestigious trophy on penalties. The Rossoneri play their home games at Stadio San Siro (80,018), the stadium that was opened in 1926. It is well known that Milan’s bitterest rivals are Inter and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Madonnina.
Milan were founded in 1899 by a lace-maker from England named Herbert Kilpin and a businessman Alfred Edwards. Milan’s home kits are red and black and that is why the team’s nickname is Rossoneri (The Red and Blacks).
The likes of Alessandro Costacurta, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Roberto Donadoni, Dejan Savicevic, Frank Rijkaard, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit and Andrea Pirlo are the most famous footballers who have represented the San Siro outfit.
