Our prediction for this Italy Super Cup match:
There will be fireworks when Inter and Juventus face each other at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in the Italian Super Cup. The Nerazzurri are determined to defend their Serie A trophy, and they head into the match following a 2-1 win over Lazio. Fit-again attacker Edin Dzeko is pushing for a start, while important midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu is back from the domestic ban. Arturo Vidal could sneak into the starting XI as well.
The Bianconeri, on the other hand, came from behind to record a thrilling 4-3 win over Roma at the weekend. Considering that Max Allegri's men are likely to adopt yet another attack-minded approach, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Federico Chiesa suffered a serious injury in the Stadio Olimpico triumph, while both Juan Cuadrado and Matthijs de Ligt miss out through suspension. Dejan Kulusevski is widely expected to return to the starting line-up.
