Italian giants Juventus and Milan will compete in tonight’s Coppa Italia quarterfinal. Juventus being the best side in the country are favorites against an inconsistent Rossoneri team.
The two sides collided in the semi finals of the competition last year where Old Lady defeated Milan after extra time.
Juventus will look to be back on track after losing to Sampdoria on the weekend, on the other hand Milan will be looking to continue their good start of the New Year by somehow upsetting the champions in Coppa Italia.
Milan boss Allegri has already conceded that his side is quite weak as compared to their opposition and will face a tough task to overcome their challenge.
“The Juventus Stadium is the most difficult place to win because Juventus are the strongest team in Italy,”
“Last year they ended the championship unbeaten, and they have already taken 44 points from the first half of the season, so it’s difficult to find negative aspects.
“We will require intensity and good technique if we want to get anything out of the encounter”
The statements are kind of baffling as it will be a source of morale booster for the dominating Juventus side and for worst might de-motivate his own squad as well.
Despite the differences in league position and points, AC Milan have already defeated Juventus in the Serie A and have to perform at the same level to have any chance of defeating Bianconeri who will be a major force at home.
