Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
After an unbelievable comeback in the Derby della Madonnina, Inter will be looking to move one step closer to winning the Coppa Italia trophy when they host Napoli at their Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. The Nerazzurri set up a meeting with the Partenopei in the Italian Cup semis by beating Cagliari and FIorentina, and Antonio Conte’s troops are seen as favourites to win Wednesday’s football match as well.
Lautaro Martinez missed the Milan game through suspension, but he should be deployed up front alongside Romelu Lukaku in the Italian Cup clash against Napoli. Considering that the Neapolitans experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a shocking 3-2 loss to Lecce, we predict that the Nerazzurri are going to emerge triumphant in the first leg. Christian Eriksen, who came from the bench in the Derby della Madonnina, is likely to return to the starting XI for the host.
